Children and Youth Ministry

Children and Youth Ministry
 
Who We Are

At Edgehill, our mission is to provide a safe place for children and youth to encounter a truly loving God through authentic relationship, real conversation, and engaging experiences.

Edgehill UMC constantly affirms that “All means All” and that is where our youth and ministry starts.

We are inclusive. Every child, teenager and family is wanted here. There are no exceptions.

We invest in relationships and community. We believe knowing each other is part of knowing God.

We value exploration. Children are encouraged to ask questions and be curious. God is not boring!

We want growth! Our hope is that each child will grow to know how loved they truly are at Edgehill, both by God and the people around them.

What’s happening?

Every Sunday

Kids are welcome to come to Edgehill at any time between 8:15 and 12:15 am on Sunday mornings. Our children’s ministry team will be there!

Kids Church- 9:30 am to 12:15 pm

Rather than being together for short periods of time on Sunday morning, we have a marathon of learning, fun and a bit of food! Feel free to drop in anytime. Our schedule is like this:

9:30- 10:00: Breakfast and Hanging Out
10:00-11:55(ish): Activities and Learning with a bit of free play
11:55(ish): Communion in the Sanctuary

 

1st Saturday Family Movies

We show a family friendly movie on the first Saturday of every month, play some games and have some snacks. It’s a great opportunity to build relationships and can work as a parent’s night out or an event for the family to enjoy together!

 

Youth

We want our teenagers to take a leadership role working with our younger students and encourage teens to come to Sunday activities to join the conversation about faith and what it means as you grow up, as well as what love is- with friends, family members and God.

We are currently seeking new ways to engage teenagers who are a part of Edgehill outside of Sunday morning and our monthly movies. We have special events, including retreats, concerts and other fun activities being added to our schedule. Contact the youth minister for more details, or check back periodically!
