Kids & Students

Sunday School PreK-6th grade

At Howland UMC, we use a rotation style curriculum for our children’s Sunday school education. We utilize hands-on, engaging lessons to reach diverse learners. Foundational stories of the Bible are taught in our 5 year lesson rotation.

There are classes for

  • Pre-Kindergarten,
  • Grades Kindergarten-Grade 1
  • Grades 2-3,
  • Grades 4-6

Each week, children visit one of four stations: Rainbow Room (crafts), Harmony Harbor (music), Whale of a Tale (drama) and Fishes and Loaves (cooking) – in which they experience the Bible story in exciting ways.

All children are in the Sanctuary for opening greetings and songs, then they are called forward for a children’s message by the pastor. Afterwards, children are dismissed to fellowship hall around 9:45am for a brief joint worship time with Miss Janel.   Classes are then held from 10:00-11:00.   This allows parents time for coffee/fellowship before picking up children.

Other Children’s Ministries include:

  • Family Nights (Bowling, movies, field trips, etc.)
  • Easter Party
  • Vacation Bible School
  • 3rd Grade Bibles
  • Children’s Musical
  • Trunk or Treat
