Children and
Family Ministries

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

As children sit at the feet of Christ, at Kids in Faith Sunday school each Sunday morning, they hear His words and begin to see Jesus in their own reflections more and more each day. Children of all ages come and grow through fun inter-active learning experiences and hands on ministry. It takes time and a commitment from both the child and the parents to allow this process of “becoming Christ-like” to occur through the work of God’s Holy Spirit. Here at Medina UMC Children & Family Ministry, we are called to walk through this process with you and your child, to identify the gifts they receive for service in Christ’s name and to teach them how to use them in an effective way. With Christ, children are free to become the best versions of themselves.  That’s when they “become" the best they can be and who they are called to be in Christ Jesus. What a blessing and a joy it is to serve a risen Savior in the world today!

At Medina UMC, nothing is more important to us than the safety and security of your children.  That’s why we’ve chosen KidCheck as our children’s check-in solution to bring you the best check-in experience and keep your children safe.  KidCheck is now available at Medina UMC in three different ways:

Check in early with the KidCheck button on the home screen of our church app
When you arrive, you can collect your sticker at the welcome center
Check in upstairs for 1st-6th grade students
Check in next to the nursery for nursery-kindergarten ages (0-6)
