WELCOME TO SHEPHERD KIDS

Our Children's Ministry provides an enriching environment for each child to learn about God and develop a relationship with Him.   

Your child's journey with us will begin in the Sanctuary.  They will be invited to the front to hear a short story or message about Jesus.  After that, they will leave with their teacher to go to their class for small group time where they will go deeper into the Word of God.  However, your children are always welcome to stay in worship if you prefer. 


Every child that comes to Shepherd of the Heart UMC is very important to us, so please allow yourself 5 minutes before service begins to complete the check in process for each child.
