Greetings Children of God!  Thank you for visiting our webpage to find out more about Fishers UMC Kids where we focus on knowing God, growing in God's Word, and Showing God's love to the world.  


We use Realm as our check in system, which is also our church database program.  All children ages infant through 6th grade are required to check in electronically every Sunday prior to going to class. Realm is a safe and secure system that is easy to use.  If you are new to Fishers UMC, you may want to come a few minutes early to enter your information.  

The Nursery and Preschool check in is located downstairs outside Room 120.
K-6th grade Check in is located upstairs outside Room 218.

Children In Worship
Worship begins at home. Preparing for worship as you head to church helps set the stage and continues as you enter the building. Include children when you greet others in the congregation or introduce yourself to new people and their children.
Help your children locate scripture readings from the Bible. Do they bring their own or use an app? Memorizing the books of the Bible helps with this too.

•Comment on special events in worship such as baptism and other special days in the life of the church. Do you notice certain colors? How about the altar, is it set for communion? Are there different decorations?
• Ask your children to listen to the sermon and share what was learned when you talk about it later at home. Perhaps encourage note taking or picture drawing about what they are hearing and seeing. Instead of being a distraction, an activity can help children concentrate. Pencils and paper are practical aids in worship participation or use the sermon notes in the church app!
• Help children further participate by giving their own monetary offering or time of serving, no matter how small.
• Your children are welcome to join you as you take part in Holy Communion. Whether a member of Fishers UMC or not, God's table is open to everyone. These gifts are a sign of the grace of God given through Jesus. Share with them the meaning of the bread and cup. Before or after Communion, discuss with your child the meaning of the body of believers participating in this sacrament together.
• Make Sunday worship a regular part of the time you spend with your children. Let God's love be evident during the rest of the week.
• Pray together at home. Pray for the people, needs and events of the church. Include your children's friends and families in your prayers.
• For the next several years, you will be worshipping with your children setting the stage for how they worship for the rest of their lives. Our congregation supports you in this important ministry as parents, and we are open to helping. Please reach out for further support or ideas.


We will be pushing Confirmation to later in the year. We encourage students to consider their participation and who they would like to have as an adult mentor.
