What is Kidcheck? All children ages infant through 6th grade are required to check in electronically every Sunday prior to going to class. Kidcheck is a safe and secure system that is easy to use. If you do not have a Kidcheck account, please make sure that you register prior to coming on Sunday mornings. It is free!
Using the Kidcheck APP to check-in your infant - 6th grader on Sunday mornings. Kidcheck offers Express Check-In, just download the Kidcheck App to your iOS or Android device. At this time, we are asking that all parents use the Kidcheck APP to check-in your children upon entering the building. There will be no check-in stations available on Sunday mornings. This ensures that all check-ins are contactless. Pick up your kids name tags at the print hub located upstairs outside Room 218.
What will my little one be doing? From ages 3 and up, your kids will be hearing stories from the Bible, wondering about those stories, and responding through creative work. Infants through two year old's will enjoy an hour of free-play, story time, and snack time.

We're anxiously awaiting our return to Hamilton Trace when it is safe for our friends there to receive guests! Every month 5/6th grade and 7/8th grade students are invited to play BINGO with Hamilton Trace Residents at 11851 Cumberland Road, Fishers 46037. Meet in the Assisted Living Activities room. The entrance on the southeast side of the building is the closest to this room, but the main entrance will also work! We ask students to sit among residents; some of whom need assistance and all who simply enjoy the company of young people.
Confirmation is open to students in 6th or 7th grade and typically begins each January.
Our church believes students this age are ready to examine their relationship with God and study our Christian heritage. Confirmation is where this journey begins!
Confirmation is an opportunity to spend four months studying our faith and Methodist history. It is also a season for a young person to grow in their Christian journey and understanding of what it means to follow Jesus. Confirmation class leads up to confirming the vows made at your baptism, making a public declaration of faith and becoming a full member of Fishers United Methodist Church.
Want to know more about Confirmation in the United Methodist Church?
Sign up coming soon here online. The letter above and the schedule will offer a good peek at the Confirmation journey. Due to the pandemic, we are offering to any student in grade 6 or above in 2022.
If you are a prospective Mentor, please check the schedule above. We ask mentors to attend the special events and Sunday afternoon classes. But if you want to help teach the Sunday School portion, let's talk about that!
