About CHUMC Children’s Ministries
All are Welcome!
Our CHUMC Children’s Ministry has something for all children from infant through 5th grade and their families. Our mission is to teach children about the love of Christ in a fun, interactive way that allows them to grow in faith and build relationships.
All classes, activities, and events follow Safe Gatherings protocols, ensuring your children are cared for by trained staff and volunteers.
We ask parents to fill out and turn in registration forms for all children, available via the link below.
