Sunday Children’s Ministry

Ready to join us? Please register your child(ren) ages 0-12th grade here. We use an online check in system upon arrival, so this helps us to safely and quickly check in your child! It also helps you to get on our mailing list, so you can stay up to date on what’s happening here in Kid Min at Advent! Plus, we get to send your child(ren) a birthday card during their birthday month! Questions? Email cindy@advent-umc.com.

Nursery

Infants 9 months and younger are welcome to stay in the Sanctuary. We love kids here – a little noise means the church is alive! We have space in the back of the Sanctuary for our youngest children and families to use during worship and also have space in the lobby. Changing tables are located in all restrooms.

Nursery
Infants and toddlers ages 9 months-3 years are welcome each week in Advent’s safe, clean, and loving Nursery. A simple class called “Wee Wonder” takes place on Sunday mornings with music, a story and coloring page. Nursery hours: 9:45 am – 11:15 am Sundays. The Nursery is located down the hallway on the left. Look for the bright red staff T-shirts!

Faith Builders

Children in Preschool (age 3 & toilet-trained) through 6th Grade: Families check in their children at our Children, Youth, and Family (CYF) Station out in the lobby where a friendly staff person will bring your child(ren) to Faith Builders! Preschoolers head off to the Pre-School room, while K-6 join in the fun in Wesley Hall!

Our sunday morning Faith Builders program includes a children’s worship service and a rotation of activities to help explore God’s love for us. Activities can include everything from cooking to games, science based activities to fun filled crafts. We’re all about fellowship and FUN!

You can register for Faith Builders online here, or fill out this print card and return to the office: CYF Info Card.

Summer Camp

Orange Group at Discovery Island Camp, 2021

At Advent, summer is full of action packed ADVENTures and activities that your camper will NOT want to miss! We typically offer between 4-6 week long day camps, hosted on site at Advent. Sometimes we take field trips! These camps run from 9am-4pm Monday-Friday and offer a before care option for those who might need to come hang out with us while families go to work.

Our camp listings for 2022 will be available in January 2022. Check back then to get registered for summer sun fun!
