CHILDREN MINISTRY





NOW HIRING NURSERY ASSISTANT SUB

The children’s ministry is hiring for one nursery assistant substitute position.  This position will fill in for our nursery assistants when they can not come on Sundays from 9:00am to 12:00pm and some additional church activities/events.  For further information please contact Ryan at 512-293-3501 or email him at ryan@beecreekumc.org

We believe: Children Matter.

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.  

Vacation Bible School

We will be having Vacation Bible School June 24-28. It will be held from 9:00am-1pm. We will be offering it to children going into Kindergarten-5th grade. If you would like to sign up, registration will open on April 8. Space is limited, we will only be able to take 50 children this year.


This is a great chance for children to come and learn about the Bible in a fun, godly environment. Our theme for the week is "God is good." We will be teaching this wonderful truth through a variety of crafts, games, and other fun activities. We are excited to be able to do this and look forward to the fun we will have. 


We are looking for adult and youth volunteers. We need adults to run our stations, and youth (going into 6th or higher) to be our team leaders and go to the stations with the children. If you are unable to help everyday, that is okay, we would love to have you whatever days you will be able to help.


For more information or if you have any questions please email Ryan Jewert at ryan@beecreekumc.org

CHILDREN'S CHURCH

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.

"But Jesus said, "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! 

For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children."

SUNDAY MORNINGS

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 3 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.

*Simply drop off your infant-3 year old off in our nursery which is located in Cabin 1-a directly in front of the sanctuary building. 
 

Preschool (3 - 5 year olds) - During the 9:30am and 11:00am services preschoolers are engaged in interactive Bible stories, crafts and activities, engaging their hearts and minds as they discover the wonder of God’s love.

Elementary (Kindergarten - 3rd 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.
