Helotes Hills UMC provides an excellent, safe and fun children's ministry for all children ages 4 years old through 5th grade. Your child will learn about Jesus at an age-appropriate level through a variety of learning styles. They will be cared for by energetic, loving teachers who are dedicated to helping children grow in their relationship with Christ while making great friends, and having lots of fun!
Every Sunday at 9:45 a.m., we provide Discipleship hour, aka Sunday school. During this hour, we use a blended learning format where we teach stories straight from the Bible, use short video clips to help reinforce the Bible story, have discussion time, and have the children re-enact the Bible story in an interactive, fun way. We also incorporate crafts and music into our Discipleship hour. We believe that every child can do amazing things through Christ and for Christ!
Helotes Hills UMC provides Children's Church each week during both the 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. worship services. Because we are so passionate about kids growing in their relationship with Christ and having a firm understanding of His word, we connect our Children's Church Bible story/lesson with our Discipleship Hour's. During children's church time, we utilize object lessons and/or experiments to help teach the Bible story, we have craft time that provides a take home visual reminder of the lesson, and an opportunity for them to fellowship with their peers.
We encourage you to ask your child "What did you learn today?" We also invite you to come visit and participate! We consider it a great honor to partner with you and your family as we work together to raise our children to be disciples for Christ.
In Christ's Love,
Director of Children's Christian Education
