Coming to Reynoldsburg UMC for the first time? Pre-register your kids here!
Our children’s ministry vision at Reynoldsburg UMC is to glorify God, grow disciples, and change the world… one child at a time. We desire to be a community where God is praised, worshipped, and glorified; and children are saved, changed, trained, and sent to transform our local community, our region, our country, and the world. Children are welcome at all of our weekend gatherings. But, for those who are interested, childcare and children’s programming are provided at the 9:15am and 11am Sunday worship gatherings. We have a Safe Sanctuary Policy that involves specialized training and background checks for our children’s servants, a safe and secure children’s wing, and a computer-based check-in system. Our hope is that you and your children will feel safe, loved and encouraged at Reynoldsburg UMC. We put Family First and would love for you to join our family. For more information, contact our Children’s Minister, Laura McCoy.
We understand that your children are precious to you, and we take seriously our responsibility to keep them safe while they’re in our care. Our church has developed an extensive Safe Sanctuary Policy involving background checks, redundancy staffing procedures, and ChurchTeams, a computer-based check-in system. We encourage you to register your family prior to your first visit. But no worries if you don’t — we’ll have friendly people to help you get signed in on your first visit.
