Welcome to the Children's Ministry of
Aldersgate United Methodist Church!

Children play a vital role in the Aldersgate family!  The mission of our Children's Ministry is to know Jesus and to make Him known in each child's heart.  We offer a variety of opportunities for children of all ages to learn more about Jesus including Sunday School, Children's Church, Wednesday Evening Bible Studies, Nursery, Children's Choirs and Parent's Night Out.  We also provide a Weekday Children's Ministry offering childcare and preschool for age 6 weeks through 5 years.  We organize many events and projects throughout the year to give children an opportunity for fellowship and community outreach.  For information about our Children's Ministry, contact Katie Blair, 272.6152 or katie@aldersgateumc.org.

A nursery is available for infants through 4 years old for our 8:15 and 10:30 worship services, as well as our Sunday school hour. Preschoolers will have a Bible story lesson during the Sunday school hour and will be brought down to 3D Kids Worship by nursery volunteers.

Teeny Tykes and Tunes  will be offered at Aldersgate on Wednesday nights beginning August 23 from 5:45 to 6:15.  A class will be offered for Babies through Toddlers led by our Weekday Children’s Ministries Music Teacher, Rebekah Bye, and another class will be offered for Preschoolers through age 5 by Rev. Steve Badskey and Ashley Acreman.  Our babies class is designed for parents or grandparents to have intentional interaction and bonding time each week with their babies and toddlers.  All participating families will receive a CD of the curriculum songs to sing along at home and in the car.  Families are invited to join us for Wednesday night Dinner, Conversation and Community gatherings each Wednesday beginning August 23 (supper is served between 5:15 and 6:00 – box meals are available).  

This faith-based music curriculum features carefully selected action songs, bounces (for babies), finger-plays, Bible songs and stories that will give children the opportunity to wiggle, giggle, and learn about God!  The primary objective of Teeny Tykes & Tunes is to provide a faith-based music curriculum for infants and toddlers that will help make music and spiritual activity a part of every child's daily life.  You can sign up on our website (click link above) or by emailing Rev. Steve Badskey, steve@aldersgateumc.org
