Children

Every child will have a chance to experience the love of God through Shiloh.

Messy Church

The first Monday of each month at 5:15pm.  (Dinner included.)

Messy Church is a time of family, friends and fellowship. It is fundamentally about people coming together in all their mess— complete with their messy lives and messy families—coming to God as they are to discover Christian community.

Re-creation and recreation are so closely tied that it’s all about meeting God in the safe space of play. People gather around the table for a meal to be human together in a Christ-centered atmosphere based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.

 

 

 

 

CHILDREN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL

Each Sunday – During 10:15 Service

 
Through Shiloh UMC’s Sunday School, we hope to help raise our young children to be faithful disciples of Jesus
Christ. Our classes encourage spiritual and emotional growth through a variety of Bible lessons, discussions, music, art, drama, and recreation. We also realize the importance of supporting parents. Parents are the most important role model in their child’s guidance and development. We hope to nuture a positive parent/child relationship based on Christian principles. Therefore, our parents are invited to participate in all areas of our our Children’s ministry. Of course, the children’s safety is always our first priority and we are a Safe Sanctuaries congregation.
 
  • Shiloh UMC’s Sunday School children have learned about different types of mission work in both the United States and throughout the world by the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). The children directly reached out to, and contributed toward, a local mission and a global mission; it included providing living livestock for families in third world countries. Read more about it.
 
Contact our church office for curriculum information, if you would like to enroll your child(ren), or if you would like to bless the lives of our children by serving our children’s ministry!
 

Safe Sanctuaries

 We implement safe sanctuaries as more than guidelines, policies and procedures implemented to create an environment in which children, youth and the adults who work with them have boundaries of safe space. Safe Sanctuaries is an overt expression of a congregation in making a congregation a safe place where children and youth may experience the abiding love of God and fellowship within the community of faith. As a part of Shiloh UMC’s Safe Sanctuaries practices, all adults that work with our children and youth are required to undergo background screenings.
