Children’s Worship & Childcare
Nursery care is available for newborn infants and up.
As a multi-generational congregation, children are both welcome and present in the sanctuary at the beginning of Sunday services. After a short children’s story, the congregation “sings them out” and they go downstairs for the remainder of the hour. Childcare is provided for young children and babies but children of all ages are always welcome to stay with their parents in the sanctuary if preferred.
Our Downstairs Children’s Area
Our downstair’s children’s area consists of a large room for circle time, a crafts and activities room, toddler room, and a bathroom. There is a portable “pack-n-play” style crib in the toddler room for sleepy babies.
GMUUC works to provide and ensure a safe environment for the physical and emotional well-being of all children participating in church activities.
GMUUC has a policy of having two teachers with the children each Sunday. Our Children’s Faith Development Coordinator, Chelsea Dickerson, is with the children every week. There are up to 8 teachers who rotate and teach the lessons. All teachers have had recent criminal background checks by the Lumpkin County Sheriff’s Office.
