Our Children's Division offers a variety of programs for toddlers through sixth graders designed to educate and nurture them as they grow in Christian faith. These include:
We offer Sunday School classes for all children, birth through 6th grade at 9:30a.m. Early Christian Awareness is a Sunday School approach used with our 6 mos. through 24 mos. This is a special class that teaches about God's love and the importance of coming to church on a very simple level.
There are choirs available for children ages 3 years through 6th grade. This is a chance for them to learn Christian music and to share what they learn with the congregation. There is no better way to learn to serve God than by actually doing it. Choirs meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30.
Confirmation- This is a 17 week-long study that helps in the Christian Decision-Making process. This is taught during the child's 6th grade year and it helps them to decide if they would like to become a member of the church and dedicate their lives to Christ.
Children's Special Events
Advent Fair- This is for those 3 years through 6th grade Sunday school classes. It is usually held in accordance with Parents Day Out. It is a time to come together and make crafts or cook surprises all around the Advent theme. The learning comes in when they are presented with the many symbols of Christmas for Christians.
Live Nativity- This is just another way for families to give back to the community. There is nothing more wonderful than to see a Live Nativity to bring the meaning of Christmas. This is held on the front lawn of Hendersonville FUMC. We encourage families to share in this moment to bring the spirit of Christ to the family.
Vacation Bible School
This week long program is for children 3 years old (as of the prior September) through 6th grade. There are also programs available for those that are younger if their parents are volunteering. Children who are in the Children First program participate on the days they attend Children First. If they fit the above age qualification, then they can participate on any day. If they are too young, then they can only come on the days they attend Children First. This is a great week of fun and excitement for children.
If you have any questions about any of the above opportunities, please call Becki Manni at 824-8725, ext. 1011 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
