At Main Street, we believe our children are second to none and that they are the future of this congregation. We offer a variety of activities to meet the various needs of our children and are always looking for new and exciting ideas. Below is just a sampling of the programs we offer.
All children’s programs of Main Street UMC are planned and coordinated by our Children’s Council and Minister of Education. The Minister of Education is Rev. Amy Burton.
Sunday School – Sunday school is from 9:45-10:40 am each Sunday. Our classes are located in the Education Building. Find the awning designated “Preschool” and enter. Go straight ahead up the steps. Our 3 & 4 year old class is located on the 1st floor in Room 315. Our elementary classes are on the second floor: K-1st grade in Room 323, 2nd & 3rd grade in Room 322 and 4th & 5th grade in Room 321.

Children’s choirs for all ages
Vacation Bible School is for children age 3 through rising 5th grade. It is offered each summer for one week in the evenings.
Weekday Preschool Program We are very proud of our 52 year preschool tradition here at Main Street UMC. We are a half day preschool program offering love, fun, Christian values, academics, and a fantastic music program for children ages infant through pre-k. The preschool year begins in September and concludes in June. A summer program is offered in June and July. Click here to visit our website.
Kid Space & Jr Kid Space is a worship opportunity for children during our 11 AM worship service. Children are part of the worship service through the Moments with Children and then are taken to other areas for this program. Parents should pick up their children in the designated rooms following service. Children age 3-5 (not in school) go to Jr Kid Space located in Room 315 of the Education Building. Children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade are part of Kid Space and it meets in the chapel. (Please note, Jr Kid Space meets every week. Kid Space does not meet the first Sunday of the month, Cantata Sundays and Sundays when children or youth are leading in worship).
SAFE SANCTUARY – Main Street United Methodist Church is a Safe Sanctuary congregation. We have a policy regarding the safety of all children and youth age 18 and under. This includes expectations for parents, children and volunteers. A copy of the policy is available from the Minister of Education.
