Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me...for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matt 19:14 NIV
In Children's Ministry, we partner with families to help children (infants through fifth grade) understand what being a disciple of Jesus Christ means. Age relevant programming integrates worship, opening to and obeying Jesus, and service to others. Belonging, Becoming, and Blessing, children learn to understand themselves, understand who God is, and learn how God can use their gifts and strengths to shine their own lights into the world.
Shady Grove is the place where children belong. We grow in faith together as we experience God's love in all we do.
Through Sunday school, COW: Children's Own Worship, G3, musicals, Camp Pray & Play, and Vacation Bible School, children learn how to live a life being open to and obeying Jesus.
G3: Grow, Go, Give for grades 3, 4, 5 blesses the community by helping with Operation Christmas Child, Comfort Bags 4 Kids, Sewing Seeds for Hope, Shalom Farms, and more.
In the spirit of hospitality, children are encouraged to invite friends to all programming.

Shady Grove UMC Preschool
Shady Grove United Methodist Church Preschool is a ministry to the children and parents of the church and surrounding community. Our program is open 9:00 am - 12:00 pm with two, three, four and five day classes for children age 1 through pre-Kindergarten.
Our programs focus on the development of the whole child – social/emotional, cognitive, physical and spiritual. Our approach is hands-on, supporting our belief that children “learn by doing”.  We offer a curriculum that focuses on the process of learning, encouraging creativity, independence and a sense of self-worth.  Our teachers are intentional in their teaching and embrace each child with care and support. We know that when loved and nourished, children will thrive! Our commitment to your children is to foster this love of learning and to leave us with a positive sense of self, independent, self-assured and ready for kindergarten.
