Children

Welcome! Our goal is to help our children become true disciples of Jesus Christ by: building relationships with them, Being examples for them and teaching them God’s Word. 

At Fredericksburg United Methodist Church we strive to do that by offering a variety of activities to get children excited about Christ!   We offer ongoing Christian education in the way of Sunday School, Wednesday night classes, vacation Bible school, special interest groups, children’s choirs, and seasonal events.  If you have any questions about our children’s programs, please call our Director of Children’s Ministry, Jillian Murray.  Come join the fun as we learn and praise Jesus!

Child Protection

As we start the new year for children here at Fredericksburg UMC, we want to be sure that we are keeping our children as safe. This is a large building with hundreds of people in and out each day.  Remember that ALL children under sixth grade must be accompanied by an adult at all times. You must walk your child to and from Sunday School. Also any groups of children must be supervised by two adults. This is not just a way to keep them safe, but is part of our child protection policy and connected to our church’s insurance policy.  Please register your children for Sunday School. If you are in the master roster, you can just check for changes and initial instead of filling out another form.  When you do this, you will be asked to list allergies as well as all people who may pick up your child.  Teachers will quickly get to recognize the parents, but as this familiarization occurs you may be asked to show ID.  Please be patient. We are making sure that we protect our children.
