Our purpose for the Children’s Ministry at Carmel United Methodist is to reach children for the glory of God and to give them a firm foundation. We seek to accomplish this by teaching children God’s word, showing them how to grow in their relationship with the Lord and challenging them to reach others with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We also desire to have the involvement of parents in discipling their children by spending time together in God’s word and being an example in how to live out God’s word every day.

VBS 2020

Mark your calendar, June 20-24

VBS is planned to happen June 2021, however there will be some changes if we are allowed to implement this life changing and fun week for our kiddos. However, we still need some items– Christmas trees, trains of any kind and fake greenery. If you are going to get a new tree, we will take your old one.  Please drop it off at door 3 and the VBS will store it until June. Trees will be donated to the Kids Coats and Food Pantry guests next winter.


 Sunday School is offered at the 9:00am service for children 3 years of age thru the 5th grade. Children begin in worship with their parents and then are dismissed at 9:15 for Sunday School. 6th-12 graders can enjoy service with their parents.


Professional, loving care is currently provided only at the 9:00am worship service. 

Youth (6-12 GRADE)

The youth are encouraged to attend service with their families.  They are then invited to return Sunday night for Youth Group from 6-7:30pm.
