Courtney Blake, Children's Director
At Bee Creek UMC, we believe that children matter and we consider it a holy calling and honor to walk alongside children and their families as they grow, learn, play, laugh, and love. Children experience the world with such pure joy and wonder which is why now is the perfect time for you to bring your children to experience the joy of a wonderful church family and the wonder of getting to know God. Children matter deeply to Jesus and they matter deeply to us here at Bee Creek UMC.
Every Sunday morning children join us in worship in the sanctuary for a children's moment with the pastor and then are dismissed for Children's Church, which is for kids from birth through fifth grade.
Our classes are using the Deep Blue and Explore the Bible curriculums which have fun monthly themes important to children in their daily lives such as honesty, loving God, family, friends, etc. The children experience and learn about their faith in ways in which children learn and experience life: through play, creating, talking, sharing, and laughing.
Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our ministry and it’s an honor to serve with each and every one of them as they love kids each week! Every volunteer who leads in the Children's Ministry here at Bee Creek UMC has had a background check and completed webinar training through Safe Gatherings. Our volunteers are committed to making the ministry a safe, Biblically relevant, and fun environment for your kids.

"Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of Heaven belongs such as these."
Matthew 19:14 NIV
Come have fun with us as we dive into God’s word, interact through music, games, and activities, and build friendships! On Sunday mornings, the Children's Ministry is divided into classes according to age and/or grade groups.
Nursery (Up to 4 years old) - Available during the 9:30am and 11:00am services, the volunteers and staff in the nursery strive to create a safe and meaningful environment where children get their first look at God’s love through songs and playtime activities.
Elementary (5 years old - 2rd grade) - At 9:30am and 11:00am, children come together for a large group experience of worship and Bible teaching where they learn the powerful truths found throughout the Scriptures. They conclude with small groups where they learn to navigate the Bible and apply the Scriptures to their lives through discussion, games and activities.
Preteen (3rd - 5th grade) - At 9:30am and 11:00am, We love preteens, and our goal is to reach them for Christ and build them up once they come. We are passionate about showing them how they can have a meaningful relationship with the God.
