He took a little child whom He placed among them. Taking the child in His arms, He said to them, “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me, but the one who sent me.” Mark 9:36-37
In New Dover United Methodist Church, our children are a vital part of our church. Therefore, we offer a weekly Children’s Time during the church service followed by Sunday School, in which the children learn the Word of God in an atmosphere that is both fun and full of spiritual meaning and growth.
We offer four classes in our Sunday School:
· Pre-K (age 4)-Grade 2
· Grade 3-5
· Middle School
· High School
· September: Rally Day, the start of our Sunday School year
· December: Advent Workshop (Pre-K-5th), where students create art activities to prepare for Christmas
· March/April: Lenten Activity (Pre-K-5th), where students create art activities to welcome Easter
· June: Closing program, followed by Church Picnic
The Sunday School meets every Sunday, September-June, during the 10 AM service. For our children younger than 4, there is also Nursery service available during the 10 AM service.
