Children's Ministries 



Infants through 3 years are welcome in the Nursery. The Nursery is available Sunday mornings from 8:50 am - 11:45 am.  We ask that you pickup your children immediately after worship so that the children of HIlltop UMC can enjoy Fellowship Time with their church family. The Nursery is located down the stairs at the West end of the North hall by the restrooms.  


We strive to provide a safe, nurturing environment for our littlest members. Our Nursery staff are experienced child care providers and have passed a background check.  Our lead child care provider is an experienced Pre-School teacher and is certified in CPR, First-Aid, and Early Childhood Education.  The nursery has age appropriate toys and books for the little ones.  


To see if the Nursery is available for other church activities, please contact the church office or Jen Strickland at 


Sunday School

Children 4 years old through 5th grade are invited to join Sunday school at 9 am.  Sunday school meets downstairs in Room S103.  Please see an usher or greeter so they can escort you and your child to the classroom. 


Sunday school classes offer children a nurturing environment where they learn through Bible stories, songs, games, and crafts.  



Children's Church

Following the Children's Message during the 10:30 am worship service children 4 years old through 2nd grade are invited to Children's Church.  Children are dismissed following the message and led to class by their teachers.  Children will return to the sanctuary during the singing of the final hymn. Children ages 4 years old and those in Kindergarten meet in Room S101. Those in 1st and 2nd grade meet in Room S103. 


Children's Church provides kids with an opprortunity to learn about God through Bible stories, songs, games, and crafts.  This is a great setting for our younger kids who are extra wiggly.  



Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is a week-long event where children 4 years old through 5th grade experience biblical teachings and life application to create the desire to seek and know Jesus. Our 2019 Program is "To Mars and Beyond".  Plan on joining us July 29th - August 2nd. 

To Mars and Beyond VBS invites Voyagers on a space travel adventure to explore where God's power can take them.  Along the jouney, Voyagers discovera new realm of possibilities as they reach for the stars and encounter the limitless power and love of God! 



Meets Sunday afternoons from 4:30 pm - 6 pm.  Children in 3rd grade through 5th grade are invited to join UEUMYs, Upper Elementary United Methodist Youth. 


The United Methodist Youth Fellowship, or simply, UMYF, is a great way to meet friends, grow in faith, and to experience what it is like to be part of a church family.  Geared mostly towards fellowship, kids meet in a casual environment where they learn about God together, invest in relationships with each other, learn about their community, and begin learning what it means to serve their community and world.  If you are new, not sure where to being, UEUMYs is a great place to start. 



Children's Christmas Service
