Children’s Ministry

Welcome!

My name is Karyn Malchus and I am the Director of Family Ministries at Valencia United Methodist Church. I am glad that you have taken the time to explore what we offer as we are in ministry with kids and families. Please take a few minutes to look at our ministry opportunities, and feel free to contact me in the church office if you have any questions or would like more information.

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:

Pioneer Clubs is a mid-week faith and fellowship opportunity for kids between the ages of 4 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 2014/2015:  Christ-Centered Kids (CCK) Dates:  9/5, 9/19, 10/3, 10/24, 11/7, 11/21, 12/12, 1/23, 2/6, 2/20, 3/6, 3/20, 4/17, 5/1 and 5/14

Summer:  Vacation Bible School

Vacation 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! VBS is open to kids between the ages of 3 years (must be fully potty-trained) and 6th grade.

MOM2MOM

Mom2Mom is a ministry of VUMC providing Christian-based support and encouragement to women in the challenging season of life called motherhood. Whether you feel the need for direction, refueling, or some friends to join you on the ride, we invite you to navigate this journey with us.

The program is for mothers of newborns through sixth grade.

We meet the second and fourth Tuesday of the month September through May, 9-11:15 a.m. In addition to a hot breakfast, our morning includes encouraging speakers, a strong mentor mom program, small group discussion and time to 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.
