The Children's Ministry of Hollywood United Methodist Church
SUNDAY SCHOOL “SUMMER BREAK – JULY 5 to AUGUST 9:
Sunday School is currently on “summer
break” through August 9. We are doing this to give our children the
opportunity to worship alongside of family, to give our dedicated
volunteers and parents a rest from serving in Sunday School and it
allows the leadership to do some planning, cleaning, prepping and
organizing for the launch of a new year.
The nursery will be
open during this time for children 4 and under. We will also be
providing activity books and crayons/pencils for children to have during
the service. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to

At HUMC, 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.

The children in the HUMC Nursery are overseen by our hired nursery care workers, 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 of service.
NURSERY (0 - 2yrs)
Nursery care is available every Sunday from 9:30am to 1:30pm for infants through 2 years old, whose parents are involved in church related activities and/or attending the worship service.
PRE-SCHOOL (open to children turning age 3 by the end of September, through children who have not yet entered Kindergarten.)
After the Children's Sermon, children in the Pre-school age group have an intro time of singing, prayer, and offering in the GYM with the K-6th graders, and are then dismissed to the KIDS' COVE located in the back of GRANT HALL for the remainder of their class time. 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 GYM for an intro time of singing, prayer and offering, and then an introduction lesson.
