Children's Ministries

It is the glory of God to conceal things,

    but the glory of kings is to search things out.

-Proverbs 25:2


At Central we understand that your student is a person who is forming their own beliefs. We strive to provide an environment where they feel safe sharing their beliefs and learning from others. We want children to openly communicate their faith in class and with you. Children have faith, and adults have the privilege of listening.

Central UMC's children's program follow the Conscious Discipline philosophy for caregiving. We have chosen this system because it is respectful of children. To learn more about Conscious Discipline and other philosophical underpinnings of Central's children's ministries, refer to our Family and Teacher Resources Page.



Children five and under can enjoy our nursery, staffed by our professional nursery teachers. The nursery is located in the first floor of the education wing at the end of the hall in room 107. Children will play and be fed a snack.

Children's Chat

 A short children's sermon will be provided at the worship service. The main theme of the adult sermon will be discussed. At the end, we will join together in prayer.


Central Seekers: Connect with Others (age 2 to grade 5)

One of the ways we discover God and refine theology is through group discussion. Students will be presented with a Bible lesson and given room to discuss what they have learned and create art.
