Children's Sunday School

(during the 10:00 worship hour)

During the school year (starting Sept. 12th, 2021), children of the church are invited upfront at the beginning of the Sunday morning worship service for a short ‘Children’s Message’ before an adult volunteer takes them to the classroom for a lesson from the Deep Blue Sea curriculum.  The one-room curriculum is perfect for children grades K-6 (or ages ~5-11).

Camping and Retreat Ministries

Our Wisconsin United Methodist Conference provides two great camping experiences in our state for children and youth: Pine Lake and Lake LucernePine Lake is located in rural Westfield, WI (50 minutes from Port Edwards).  Lake Lucerne is located in Neshkoro, WI (1 hour from Port Edwards).  Our church supports and provides funding for our children to attend these summer camps.  Each provides a variety of camping opportunities from day camps to weeklong, including specialized camps throughout the summer months.  Pine Lake also doubles as a great Retreat Center.

Summer Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is a specialized form of religious education for children usually held as a week-long event during the summer.  VBS uses fun themed curriculum.  Instead of providing our own VBS, we support the VBS at the First English Lutheran Church (ELCA) in Wisconsin Rapids and send our children there.  The VBS program is not specific to any denominational teaching and it is suitable for children in most Christian faith traditions.  This VBS usually runs a few days in July.
