Community for Our Children
Safe to Grow and Discover Together
Each summer we host Vacation Bible School. Through music, art, games, drama, science and fellowship we teach the Gospel of Jesus to children 3 years old through 5th grade. This inter-generational opportunity to teach and learn about the Bible engages our youth, our families, our senior adults and neighbors in a week of fun, faith and fellowship! Open to the community, we build relationships and memories to cherish for a lifetime.
Registration forms typically available in late May. Volunteers are always appreciated! Enrollment will be based on the number of available volunteers in order to ensure a safe learning environment. Waiting lists will be used as we form new groups. 2015 dates are Monday, July 27th – Thursday July 30th. G-Force: God\’s Love in ACTION by Cokesbury.
The Larger Methodist Community
A variety of summer camps are available in the area to attend, giving children the opportunity to share together in Christian community to establish a deeper understanding of self, God, and others. Contact the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Methodist Church at (303) 733-3736 for additional information. You may also visit their website:www.rmcumc.org. Buckhorncamp@gmail.com
Children’s Sunday, a longstanding tradition, happens each Sunday after Mother’s Day in May. Children lead worship through song, scripture, puppeteering and creating visual representations for our annual theme. Between services, children celebrate with their families in the children’s area with games, activities, cake and previewing our VBS theme for the year! The Children’s Anthem (song) is practiced on Sunday mornings in May so that all children may participate!
Searching for Christ
Children of all ages are invited to participate in our annual Easter egg hunt held during the Sunday school hour, 9:45-10:45 on Easter Sunday. Divided by age groups, the children spend the morning playing games, having snack, hearing the Easter story from our Reverend, making a craft and going on an egg hunt.
