Children’s Ministries Response to COVID-19

Sunday School will not meet in person until further notice. Because of this, we’ve created a resource for remaining worshipful (and combating cabin fever) with your children. Look for a new issue each week in your inbox and here on our website:

Palm Sunday Journey at Home – Holy Week
Family Lenten Journey at Home – Week of March 29
Family Lenten Journey at Home – Week of March 22
Family Lenten Journey at Home – Week of March 15

Visit our Resources page for additional resources related to COVID-19.


Children and their families are an active, vital part of our church community. We are glad you are here! If you have questions or ideas, contact us, connect with us on social media (Facebook and Instagram), or stop by our offices on the main floor near the sanctuary. We look forward to getting to know you.

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:  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.
