Children (Birth to Grade 5)

Children

Sunday School (Previously called J.A.M Sessions)

Sunday School begins September 16th this year and runs through May. Sunday School meets at 10AM in between our two worship services (9&11AM) For children we have a combined class for Kindergarten through second grade as well as a separate class for children grade 3-5. This year we are using curriculum from Group Publishing called Digging into Discipleship. The curriculum is up to date, relevant and engaging. It encourages the students to experience the material rather than hear it. Lessons include a story, music, video, crafts and other silly and fun activities. Lessons are timed for 40 minutes and are run by an amazing and passionate group of volunteers.

Vacation Bible School

Each summer our church is transformed with incredible decorations to provide a summer defining experience for the children. Vacation Bible School, often abbreviated as VBS, is a non-threatening, high energy program designed for children who attend the church and those in the surrounding community. Children can expect to hear Bible stories in ways they never have before, create take home crafts, play wacky games, perform science experiments, among so much more! VBS information for 2019 will be available mid-April of the same year. Please contact the church office by phone or email for more information

Music programs

The King’s Singers

The United Methodist Church of Chagrin Falls offers children in grades 1 to 8 the opportunity to serve in worship through our children’s choir, The King’s Singers, under the direction of Karen Spisak. Rehearsal is each Thursday during the school year from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. The choir sings monthly at the 11 a.m. service and occasionally at the 9 a.m. service. Several times a year the King’s Singers sing with the Shepherds of Sound praise team.  The highlight comes in May with the presentation of the annual children’s musical program. This very special event engages the members in drama, music, choreography, set design, costumes and props to teach and share a special Christian message with the congregation and community. The King’s Singers provides a wonderful opportunity for children to make new friends, be an avenue of serving with participation in worship services and add to their development and understanding of music and faith.

We love new friends to join us!
