SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES (PRESCHOOL TO 5TH GRADE)
We provide age appropriate curriculum which teaches of the love of God and Jesus and our spiritual heritage. Craft projects reflect the lesson and Biblical truths. Children's Sunday School begins after the Children's Moment in the worship service.
NURSERY CARE (INFANTS AND TODDLERS)
Free nursery care is provided during the service. Our nursery is staffed by responsible and experienced caregivers who have served this congregation for years.
Ages: 4th Grade to 12th Grade
The word "acolyte" is taken from an ancient Greek word that meant "companion," "attendant," or "helper." Acolytes work closely with our pastors and others who are on the morning worship team to help the congregation to worship God. Training for new acolytes is held in the fall, and all acolytes are assigned services on a rotational basis.

The Children's Center was established by Aldersgate United Methodist Church, a non-profit organization, to provide an opportunity for children of the church and the community to be involved in a developmental environment of Christian nurture which affirms we are children of God.
We have programs for infants, toddlers, pre-school, and school age children. The Children's Center is open to any child regardless of race, religion, or ancestry.
