Psalms 127:3 "Children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord."  The nursery ministry is there for your needs and is open to children 5 & under. We offer a fully staffed nursery ministry to give those parents or grand parents a break and the opporutity to worship without having to worry about their kids. Of course children are always welcome in our worship service if parents want to worship as a family, including the occasional distractions, crying outbursts and all. Our nursery is staffed with 2 adults that are CPR trained. They are loving and love to teach and read to the little ones. We are commiteed to keeping our nursery clean and sanitary.

Children from grades 2nd through 12th grade can serve as an acolyte. The word acolyte means "a companion or one who follows." As an acolyte you will serve the church by lighting and extinguising the alter candles. When you light the candle it reminds us that God is here with us. When you "extinguish" the candles it reminds us that Jesus Christ is the Light of the World and we are to go out and praise His name. Click here for the Acolyte Schedule.


All teachers/volunteers are required to submit to a thorough nationwide background check. You can review our policies by clicking here on our Child & Youth Protection Policy.

United Methodist Christian School

United Methodist Christian School, in partnership with families, is committed to helping children discover and develop abilities that will shape their future. It is our goal to build a strong Christian character in each child as well as nurture each child’s mind, body and spirit for success throughout life.

In February 2015 the school was re-accredited through the United Methodist Association of Preschools. This accreditation ensures that the preschool promotes high quality Early Childhood Education practices as well as a strong focus on Christian Education. Accredited programs are also awarded the State of Florida Gold Seal Quality Care designation.
