Young Disciples is a dedicated ministry of GUMchurch that focuses on providing a safe, loving place for kids to explore their faith as well as nurture their relationship with both God and God's people. From birth through 12th grade, Young Disciples and their family find support from the GUM community as they journey toward a better understanding of God, Jesus, and our calling in God's world.
0 - 2yrs
Kids from birth through age 2 will play and be loved on in the Nursery (just down the hall from the Sanctuary).
The purpose of the Nursery Ministry is to provide safe childcare for families and support parents in raising children who know Jesus so that both parents and children can actively live the example of Jesus.
Jesus tells us, "Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs." So we strive to help all of the children in nursery care encounter God in ways that are fun and age-appropriate.
The kids in nursery experience loving care from trained childcare providers while interacting with other kids, learning songs, hearing stories and building relationships within the GUM community.
Nursery and childcare services are available during all worship services as well as church classes, meetings, and other events.

Young Disciples Ministries
3yrs - 12th Grade
The mission of GUMChurch's Young Disciples Ministry is to create an exciting Christian community where children feel welcome and accepted, are inspired to build a personal relationship with God, and put their faith in action.
3 year old – 6th grade will experience the Bible in new and exciting ways by making connections to each other and drawing parallels between the stories they read in the Bible to their day-to-day lives, using a curriculum called “Whirl”.
7th – 12th graders gather for Sunday school during second service. Make sure to come early at 10 am for a yummy breakfast in the youth room! Our new curriculum, Re:form, is an exciting way for teens to navigate the bible and a Christian lifestyle.

Vacation Bible School 2019
We wrapped up June with another successful week of Vacation Bible School! Throughout the week we learned about God's great love by examining what it means to be a good neighbor and how to live out our faith. Children experienced four Bible stories through song, drama and activities each day. We are grateful to the many volunteers and all of the children who attended and made this event possible!
