Nursery & Elementary

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” — Matthew 19:14


We welcome you and your small children to our Nursery at Baker Memorial UMC every Sunday at the 9:30am service and 10:30am Recharge time. Our Nursery is available to children 4 years and under (infant) year-round. Our staff engages the children through active playing, and teaching simple Bible stories. We also take the time to love and pray for your children each week.

All toys and surfaces are cleaned and sanitized each week and between services. Baker Memorial UMC follows a Safe Sanctuaries Policy for volunteers and staff along with background checks. Nursery workers maintain current CPR and First Aid Certification.

ReCharge: Children

PreK/K and our elementary children will begin each Sunday from August-May by singing songs before they head into their classrooms. The children will dive deeper into God’s word with Bible lessons, songs, videos, and hands-on activities. Celebrate Wonder curriculum will help engage our children’s natural curiosity to help them understand God’s word through storytelling, life applications, and exploring God’s word. Celebrate Wonder encourages creativity along with using their imagination to bring the Bible stories to life to help them understand God’s love.

Summer ReCharge Begins July 10
Join us for Sunday Fun Days July 10 through August 14 at 10:30am. Kids and youth of all ages are invited to come have fun while learning about God in creative ways.
