Tell ME a Story: Exploring God’s Word Together

Twice a month a Children’s Ministry volunteer will read an engaging story that coincides with our Pastor’s sermon. You will also be able to download a fun coloring sheet about that week’s story. Please visit Mary Esther UMC Facebook for more information.


Postponed due to COVID-19

8:30am until the end of the Café service

In the church nursery, you will meet other parents going through similar spiritual experiences of wonder, commitment, and trust.

There’s perhaps no time in life when you’re more in touch with God’s creative work than when you become a parent.

In a sense, the church nursery serves as a church within a church. Those who gather there are joined with others to share sacred tasks and to be filled by God’s guidance and grace.

Allow our Nursery Volunteers to take care of children aged birth through 2 years-old while you enjoy one of our two Worship Services. Our nursery opens at 8:45am until the completion of the Cafe service and is located in room 23. Don’t forget a snack and a few diapers and wipes!

Children's Ministries

Each episode is rooted in the day’s theme and shows the kids living out faith in a wide range of situations. No matter what the challenge, the kids in the Whirl videos are ready to show kids that a life in the church is a great place to meet friends, explore the Bible, and grow in faith!
