WELCOME TO FISHERS UMC KIDS!

connect with us on facebook

Greeting Fishers UMC Kids and Families!  Thank you for visiting our webpage to find out more about what Fishers UMC Kids has going on.  We continue to pray for you and our community, as we still deal with the pandemic.  At times, it can still seem so overwhelming, but remember God is with us.  Take comfort in these words:

but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint. - Isaiah 40:31

Stay the course friends! Keep your eyes up and He will renew your strength!

Fishers UMC currently has two in-person worship services and is live streaming both.  You can join us for in-person worship at 8:30a and 11:00a in the Sanctuary on Sunday's or online. Fishers UMC remains committed to keeping all the people who walk through it's doors safe.  Please make sure you review our safety guidelines and protocols prior to coming on Sunday mornings.  

We are all looking forward to the day that we can sit in our classrooms with the kids, but we are not offering children's Sunday School or the nursery at this time.  Until that time, we will continue to connect with online Sunday School at 10:00 AM, through mail, digital platforms such as FB and the website, and phone calls.   To make doing church-at-home easier on you, we even created a section that you can check weekly for the children's moment videos, wondering questions, response time ideas, spiritual practices and more. 

And of course, please reach out to us for any needs you may have.  Prayer with your kids, prayer with parents/grandparents, material needs, etc.  

With love, peace and prayers ~ Pastor Clint, Jenica and Jennifer

SUNDAYS

What is Kidcheck? All children ages infant through 6th grade are required to check in electronically every Sunday prior to going to class. The check-in stations are located downstairs inside of Door #4 and upstairs in the Children's Ministry lobby.  Both can be accessed by entering through Door #4 and proceeding up the stairs directly ahead. Guests who are visiting will also be asked to use this system. Kidcheck is a safe and secure system that is easy to use.

Want to skip the line? Kidcheck offers Express Check-In, just download the Kidcheck App to your iOS or Android device.  You can check your kids into his/her class before you even walk into the door!  Pick up your kids name tags at the print hub located downstairs in the Family Life Center (FLC) lobby inside of Door #4.

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.

9:45 AM Children's Worship Hour—K-4th grade students meet in the Children’s Worship Room (218) for an hour long Sunday School class. We are currently using Godly Play. 

11:00 AM Discipleship Hour - Following the Children's Moment in the 11:00 Worship service, children Pre-K through 4th grade are invited to go upstairs for a 45 minute Discipleship class that mirrors the Sunday School hour.

What do the elementary kids do?  Fishers UMC Kids recently switched to using the Godly Play curriculum.  Each week, children ages Kindergarten through 4th grade will be greeted at the door and prepare to enter into God's presence.  They will gather in a circle to hear a story from the Bible from the Storyteller, wonder about that story and then break out into work stations to respond to the story.  Then they will come back together to share their work (only if they chose) and the Feast (a small snack).  This is all part of the Godly Play approach. 

What is Godly Play?  Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. Based on Montessori principles and developed using a spiral curriculum, the Godly Play method serves children through early, middle and late childhood and beyond. Come join us!

Confirmation

About

Confirmation is open to students in 6th or 7th grade and 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.
