Children

SUMC loves kids! At Sequoyah United Methodist Church, children play an important role in our congregational life. Through our Rotational Sunday School Program, our mid-week WOW activities and other enrichment programs our children grow and learn in their walk of faith. For more information about our Children’s Ministries email children@sequoyahmethodist.org.  Check out our children’s calendar.

Sunday School

Nursery

Nursery is provided for infants through toddlers during the Sunday School hour beginning at 9:45 AM.

Preschool Age

Sunday School Curriculum by Group’s FaithWeaver equips preschoolers with memorable Bible learning plus interactive teaching tools that engage and captivate preschool learners. Lessons are designed to encourage faith development beyond Sunday so faith grows all week long.

Elementary School Age

Elementary age children (Pre-K  through 5th grade) will experience Rotational Sunday School using Cokesbury’s curriculum, PowerXpress. With PowerXpress, children will experience the Bible story in many different ways. When children see AND hear AND do, they retain 90% of the experience. As a result, the Bible story and its meaning for them will stay with them for life!

Every week children rotate through different workshops after The Gathering (which starts at 9:45 AM) . Each grade level group has a shepherd who remains with them all year long through each rotation. Rotation themes change monthly. Children participate in workshops each week like:

  • Art
  • Cooking/Science
  • Storytelling/Games
  • Theater

WOW

(Wednesdays August-May)

WOW is a mid-week Bible study and enrichment program for Pre-K through 4th graders. The curriculum is Bible Black Belt. An active learning material for mixed ages where children learn about the Bible, how and where to find verses.  Special church year series are also used in the WOW program for children. Nursery is available for Infants-Preschool.

Acolytes

The acolyte serves a vital role in the service of worship at Sequoyah UMC. Minimal training is required and all are welcome who desire to serve!

Children’s Church

Children’s Church is available during the 11:00 worship services, for children ages 3-4th grade. After the “Children’s Moment” the children will assemble in the Children’s Chapel for music, prayer and praise.  Adults may pick up their children in the Preschool Room after the worship service.
