Our Vision Statement

Children’s Ministries at Myers Park United Methodist Church teaches the Christian faith, models love and service, and supports children and their families as they journey to become loving disciples of Christ.

Our Core Values

We support families in the spiritual development of children by providing opportunities for worship, faith development, fellowship, and service together:

  • Faith Formation:  We provide a strong transforming Christ-centered foundation for faith development through biblical knowledge, worship, reflection, and prayer.
  • Service/Missions:  We are called to serve in this needy world.
  • Hospitality:  We embrace each child as a child of God, providing a safe environment for all to feel loved, accepted, and secure.
  • Fellowship:  Whenever we gather, we are a family.  We offer opportunities to get to know each other.  We respect our family members by modeling an attitude of holiness and respect toward God and each other.
