Jesus said, "Let the Little Children come unto me." We at East Naples UMC believe children are the heart of the Church and an important part of our Church family. ENUMC strives to provide ministries for children of all ages as well as their families.
Sunday School is available from 9:30-10:30am. You may drop off your child on the second floor of the Education Building. Children in Preschool-2nd Grades meet in the Blue Classroom and children in 3rd-5th Grades meet in the Purple Classroom. Your child is welcome to come learn through Bible lessons and crafts. At 10:30am your child will be escorted down to the choir room to participate in the King's Kids children's choir. Please pick up your child in the Choir Room at the end of the worship service.
Nursery: The Nursery is available from 9:00am - 12 noon for children 4 years of age and under on Sundays. The Nursery is located in Elsey Hall. Our nursery is staffed by an experienced and screened adult staff member. You will be asked to sign your child in so the nursery staff knows who may pick up your child. This is to ensure your child's safety.
Children's Church: Children's Church meets on Sunday mornings during the 11:00am service and is for children in preschool through fifth grade. All children sit in the Sanctuary with their parents and come up to the front for a special Children's Sermon during the service. An announcement will be made inviting all children to come forward. Following the Children's Sermon the children are escorted upstairs to the second floor of the Education Building. This is a worship service that is all their own. Children learn the same Bible story you learn during worship, sing, and create craft projects. You may pick up your child on the second floor of the Education Building at the end of the worship service.
Wonderful Wednesday meets on the second floor of the Education building every Wednesday from 5:30-6:30 PM. We provide a kid friendly snack (please notify staff of any allergies) and hands-on Bible lessons to engage children in an active spiritual journey. Wonderful Wednesday is designed for children ages 4-12 and is always lots of fun. The children are broken up into appropriate age groups, so they can learn on their own level. In addition, adults may attend Mid-Week Service from 6:00-7:00pm. There will be aftercare provided for children whose parent(s) are attending the service. All are invited to come and be a part. Please sign your child in so we have an emergency contact number, and pick up is promptly at 7:00pm or immediately following the Mid-Week Service.
East Naples United Methodist Church has a Child and Youth Protection Policy in place to ensure the safety and well-being of your child(ren). Please read it and feel free to contact us with any questions.
