HZUMC Kid’s Ministry Vision: We want children to fall in love with Jesus! To grow, learn and thrive in their relationship with Him, and share their faith with family and friends.

We want children to:

Experience relationships that show them the LOVE of God.
Understand the TRUTH that is found in the Bible, and how it impacts their lives.
” Learn to PRAISE God for all that He has done and all that He has promised to do.
SERVE others as an example of Christ’s love.

Safe Sanctuary: HZUMC participates in the Safe Sanctuary process, which includes review of personal background information of teachers and volunteers in classes and activities involving children/youth, as well as monitoring of hall and classroom activities during the Sunday School hour.


The nursery is available for infants and children through 3 years of age during church services as well as the Sunday school hour. There is a pager system in place to give you peace of mind that if your child needs you, we will be able to contact you.

“Believe in God, believe also in me.”
John 14:1

We offer LIVE B.I.G. class for children ages 2 – 5th grade! Join us on Sunday mornings at 9:45 for fun, friendship and faith in LIVE B.I.G.! Classes are based on 3 LIVE B.I.G. truths:

#1 God is a great big God.
#2 God loves us with a great big love.
#3 We are part of God’s great big world.

We believe that Scripture is the basis for every part of our lives, and we want to live out these 3 truths in our everyday lives…and we want our children to as well! Join us on Sunday morning for LIVE B.I.G.!

Kids_Church_LogoKids Worship

We believe that the presence of children in our worship services is very important, but we also know that little ones can’t always control their wiggles! On Sunday mornings we offer several options for families with children during our worship services for that very reason!
The CRY ROOM is available for families with infants who do not wish to have their baby in the nursery just yet. It is located at the back of our Sanctuary, where you can see and hear everything that is going on during the service. KIDS WORSHIP bags are also available at the back of the Sanctuary for children who wish to remain in the service. Worship bags are packed full of fun and even a bulletin just for kids with tons of activities that coordinate with what the service is about.

  • Children’s Church is available during our 11:00 service for children ages 4 thru 5th grade.
