Sunday morning:

We offer Sunday School during both Worship Hours for ages 3 years-6th grade. Classes and activities are age-appropriate. Our curriculum is innovative and relevant so that children are able to apply what they’re learning throughout their daily lives. We bring the Bible to life through Praise & Worship, Small and Large Group teaching, Skits, Multi-media presentations and much more. We’re all about engaging the child so that we can teach him/her God’s Word! We consider it a privilege to be part of your child’s faith journey.

Wednesday evening:pclogo

Pioneer Clubs is a mid-week faith and fellowship opportunity for kids between the ages of 3 years and 6th grade. Through a variety of activities, kids learn how to make Jesus a part of everything they do.  (September-May)

For more information, see the Pioneer Clubs page.

Friday evening:

Christ-Centered Kids (CCK)

At VUMC, we have a fun and fellowship youth group for our 5th and 6th graders.  At this stage of your child’s life, kids can often feel they don’t fit in anywhere. They feel too big to be with the little kids and too young hang out with teenagers. This is why we created CCK! We meet every other Friday night, September through May for social gatherings/outings. This is not a class! You come to the ones that fit with your child’s schedule. To get notice of our events or to hear more about our program please call the church office or contact Karyn Malchus.

CCK Dates for 2017/2018: 9/8, 9/22, 10/6, 10/20, 11/3, 11/17, 12/8, 1/12, 1/26, 2/9, 2/23, 3/9, 3/23, 4/13, 4/27, 5/10

Image result for shipwrecked vbsVacation Bible School meets for one week during the summer for fun, fun, and more fun! Each year provides ways for kids to connect with God and with other kids through Bible stories, music, snacks, crafts, and more!  This year our theme is “Shipwrecked:  Rescued By Jesus.” VBS is open to kids between the ages of three years (must be fully potty-trained) and 6th grade.  We offer a special tween program for 5th and 6th graders.  Registration opens May 6.


Mom2Mom is a ministry of VUMC providing Christian-based support and encouragement to women in the challenging season of life called motherhood. Our mission is to educate, encourage, and equip women for the most important job in the entire world: parenting. We do this through practical, Biblically-based teaching and supportive interaction in small groups led by our experienced and supportive Mentor Moms. Whether you feel the need for direction, refueling, fellowship or simply to make new friends, we invite you to navigate this journey with us.

The program is for mothers of children of all ages.  We meet on Tuesdays twice a month, September through May, 9-11:30 a.m. In addition to breakfast, our morning includes a strong mentor mom program, small group discussion, a fun craft, and time just for you to relax and connect with other mothers. Our kids’ program for newborns through kindergarten meets simultaneously to provide a nurturing and fun place for your child to grow.

For more information please feel free to contact our group leader Rachel Villanueva at
