The children's ministry at SoPinesUMC serves kids from birth through 5th grade.  We believe that each child is a unique individual loved by God.  Whether boy or girl, short or tall, energetic or calm we are committed to teaching them of God's love of this world and of them, through his son Jesus Christ.

Our hope is that they not only grow to become good people but that each one matures into adult disciples of Jesus.  For now, we want them to be who God has created them to be for this time, children.  Children who are loved by God, by you, and by us here at SoPines UMC.  

Below you will find a brief description of some of the children's ministries we offer at SoPines UMC.  We encourage you to read about them, and then to allow your child to experience them first hand.
