CHILDREN'S SUNDAY SCHOOL MEETS AT 9:45
Our children gather on Sunday mornings at 9:40 on the 2nd floor of the newly reconfigured Atkin Learning Center. The ALC is a two story learning space especially designed with young people in mind. It includes a new nursery area, larger gathering areas, art room, theater, science/learning kitchen and classrooms.

SUNDAY MORNING NURSERY‐Under 2 years
Infants and toddlers under age 2 will find the First UMC nursery a safe and loving Christian environment. Our nursery staff and childcare workers are experienced in childcare, CPR/First Aid certified, and vetted through a background check and references. First UMC Georgetown has adopted a “Safe Sanctuary” policy for our guidance in establishing the best practices in childcare. For your child’s safety, all parents are required to register each child and  complete a medical release form. Only parents or grandparents are authorized to bring a child or pick up a child from the nursery. Pagers will soon be available upon request for your use during the worship service. We seek loving volunteers to teach and guide children on Sunday mornings and during other times of learning and fun. To volunteer, please contact Dotty C
ulig, Director of Christian Education.

PRESCHOOL‐ Children ages 2, 3, 4, and Kindergarten

Preschoolers use colorful, active, age‐appropriate curriculum such as,
Grow, Proclaim, Share. Caring teaching teams for each class, include at least 4 adults that each teach once a month. Children are grouped by ages as of September 1st.  

Preschool Sunday School classes meet in Rooms 121 & 124 of ALC.



The Academy Model …a new way of doing Sunday school

Children in 1st through 4th grades meet in the Gathering Area of the Atkin Learning Center for a worship time which includes a Bible story.  The students then attend a class that they have chosen for the semester in which they will explore the Bible story through hands-on learning experiences.  The classes include: Bible Bytes, How Great Thou Art, Creative Cookery, and LEGOS.  By the end each semester, children will have had the opportunity to grow in discipleship and to develop a skill in a particular area.
