The Children's Ministry of Hollywood United Methodist Church
Our HUMC KIDS Team
Becky Stambaugh has been serving as HUMC's Children's Ministry Coordinator since September 2008. She comes to us with years of ministry experience as a high school youth leader and teen camp counselor. Professionally, she was an English teacher for nine years in the NJ public school system, holding a Bachelors degree in English Education, and a Masters degree in Christian Counseling.
At Hollywood United Methodist Church, our Sunday School teachers are volunteer members of the HUMC family. They selflessly give of their time every Sunday to teach the love of God to our children. To be in compliance with the United Methodist Church 'Safe Sanctuary' Policy, two teachers are always present in each Sunday School class.
The children in the HUMC Nursery are overseen by our hired nursery care workers, Jackie Covarrubias, and Amalia Corral, both certified in CPR.

REGULAR SUNDAY SCHOOL SCHEDULE
OUR CURRICULUM...is an
interactive, multi-age, multi-sensory Sunday School learning
experience. In a rotational setting, the same Bible theme is taught
over several weeks. Each week, the students rotate to different
learning stations, such as art, science, storytelling, video, cooking,
games and music. This enables our kids to experience the Bible through
different modes of learning.
All children 3 years and
older begin in the
worship service at 11:00am for the opening hymns and the Children’s
Sermon. After the Children's Sermon, Sunday School pick up locations
are announced, and children are dismissed to their classes for duration
NURSERY (0 - 2yrs)
Nursery care is available every Sunday from
9:30am to 1:30pm for infants through 2 years old, whose parents are

the Tiny Tot age group have an intro time of singing, prayer, and offering in the Chapel with the K-6th graders, and are then dismissed to the KIDS' COVE located in the
back of GRANT HALL for the remainder of the worship service. They can
be picked up from there after service.
K - 6TH GRADE
After the Children's Sermon, the K-6th grade are dismissed to the CHAPEL for an intro time of singing, prayer and offering, and then an introduction lesson. From there,
children are dismissed to their age appropriate classes, where they experience an
