Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” –Matthew 19:14

To provide a safe and loving place for children to grow, play,
and explore all BUMC staff and volunteers are screened and complete CPR training regularly.


9:30 AM

As you come for worship this summer, kids can attend Sunday School during the first part of worship.  Look for Ms. Carey or one of her helpers to direct the kids to the classroom on the lower level.  

About half way through worship kids will join their families, hear a special children’s message, and sing along with the Praise Band. 

Beginning September 10th, we return to two worship services on Sundays at 8:30am and 10:30am.  Kids who attend the 10:30 service are invited to Sunday School after the Children’s message.


Wednesdays are Broadway Family Foundations Night. 


At 6:00 PM a community meal is served in the Fellowship Hall.

From 6:45 – 8:00 PM Faith in Motion is offered for kids Pre-K-5th Grade.  Kids experience Jesus and Scripture through crafts, story telling, science experiments, cooking, recreation, and music.

On the fourth Wednesday there all come together for a 30 minute worship service before heading to their small group and ministries.


Our nursery is now staffed and open for Sunday morning worship for infants and todders. Young children are always welcome in worship but sometimes parents/guardians would like the option to worship without their children present.

The nursery can also be opened on Wednesday evenings or during adult small groups as needed.  Contact Ms. Carey.
