Kids' Connection

Join us!

We miss seeing you in person each Sunday, and we want to connect with you throughout the week. We encourage families to use the resources provided on this page during a time that works well for your family. And be sure to join us for the weekly Kids’ Connection lesson via Zoom! Find more info below.

It feels like it’s been ages since we could meet in person. This has been a rough time for everyone. If your child could use an extra check-in with one of our leaders, please let us know! We would love to be an additional support during this time.

Programs

Celebrate Wonder

Our children’s ministry program is designed to connect families to the church, so that together we can partner to build a foundation of faith for our children. We want your child to know that God loves them no matter what and that Jesus will be their best friend forever. We also want your child to know that kids are important at St. Paul’s and that their church family cares about them and is praying for them.

We use Celebrate Wonder, a Cokesbury curriculum, that engages children’s natural sense of curiosity to help them understand God’s love. It creates a safe environment for kids to ask big questions — helping them explore the Bible in ways that feed their imagination and encourages creativity. Through carefully-selected Bible stories, songs, videos, and hands-on activities, Celebrate Wonder gives children the tools to explore their faith while incorporating it into their daily lives.

So much fun in Kids Connection this morning! We love doing zoom with Ms. Jamie and our friends.

Resources

The girls are loving the activities from the family discipleship kit. This morning I told Ava we were going to do an online Storytime with the library and she looked bummed. She said, “Oh. I was hoping we could do another Bible lesson.” :)

Egg a Family!

At St. Paul’s UMC, intergenerational relationships are important. Sign up to bless a family this Easter season! You are invited to “egg” a family’s front yard. What does that mean?!

We’ll assign a family to you and provide all the supplies, you provide the fun!
  • Sign up today to participate
  • Pick up your supplies during the food drive on March 7 or on Sunday, March 21, 12:30-1:30pm.
  • Fill the easter eggs with candy
  • Hide them in the family’s front yard
  • Leave a sign taped to the family’s front door so they’ll know who it’s from!
All are welcome to participate!

We are getting our Valentines ready for the intergenerational St. Paul’s service project!
