All our volunteers in the Children’s department are Safe Sanctuary certified.
Children’s Sunday School meets at 10:45 on Sunday mornings (after the main worship service). Sunday School classes involve games and crafts and learning activities, all of which are centered around a lesson that teaches our children about God and God’s love for all of us.
Family Ministry Night
Every Wednesday, Whitehouse UMC gathers for Family Ministry Night beginning at 6:00 pm. The evening starts off with time for learning; we have classes children, youth, and adults. The children’s class is open to any child age 3 through 5th grade. After our time of learning, everyone comes together for dinner! It’s a great chance for our families and children to get to know other people at WUMC. If the weather is nice, we usually head outside after dinner for some fun and games!
Lakeview Methodist Conference Center in Palestine, Texas, District Camp offers an incredible opportunity for youth of all ages to engage one another in their faith walk. This week-long camp is filled with games, worship, bible study, and an opportunity to work with mentors trained to guide students into a deeper relationship with Christ. Lakeview is open to all children who have completed 2nd grade. Anyone can attend any of the four week-long sessions, but we always try to go to one session as a church group. Check with our leaders to see which session we’re going to this year!
Vacation Bible School
Every summer, we offer a VBS program for children up to 5th grade. Kids spend a week learning about the Bible and doing activities that will teach them about God’s love and mercy. Check our church announcements in the spring to learn about this year’s VBS theme and schedule.
