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.

TRADITIONAL SERVICE (10:30am): Children begin in worship with their parents and then are dismissed after the children's moment to attend SUNDAY SCHOOL with their teachers, and CONTEMPORARY SERVICE (10:45am): Children go to their Sunday School classroom before parent's or caregivers go to service. Children will return to service at the end of the sermon, and before the children's moment.
