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
