In a time and place when children were never heard and seldom regarded, Jesus told his followers to welcome them and know that their youth, energy and open spirit were a vision of God’s Kingdom.
At Duncan UMC we believe that children and young people are important. That’s why we want to include, encourage and teach them to grow in their faith and be a part of the church.
Every Sunday morning we offer Sunday school classes for all ages, pre-school to high school and beyond.
We feature a special sermon, just for kids, in our 11am worship time.
Our youth group meets not only on Sunday but other various times for fun, learning, prayer and service.
We have Vacation Bible School every summer for elementary – middle school and mentor our high schoolers as VBS helpers.
We provide scholarships for any child or young person who wants to go to summer camp at Camp Sumatanga.
We elect youth representatives to our local Church Council to make sure their voice is heard in congregational planning and policy.
We encourage children and young people to look for ways in which their faith can be practiced in worship, devotion and service.
If you have children or youth in your family, we’re confident that they’ll feel at home in our church family too!
