Kids and Youth

Mark 10:14 says “… Jesus said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” We welcome children of all ages at MCUMC and have many programs in place to help them grow in faith.

Pray Ground and Nursery
During our 10:15 AM worship services, young children are welcome to participate in the service from our Pray Ground. This area has soft, quiet toys and activities that young children can play with while engaging in the service with their families. We regularly have kids dancing along to the praise music from this section! A professionally staffed nursery is also available during this service for those children (or parents) who would prefer this option. Older children may pick up activities and books from our Kids Corner bookcase to help calm the wiggles during the service.


Sunday School
Sunday school classes are taught during the school year for kids ages 2 through 12th grade, and meet from 9:15 – 10:00 AM on Sunday mornings in the Worship Center. The Sunday School hour at Mays Chapel is a time for learning, for giving, and for enjoying the richness of life in a warm Christian community.  

Our HYPE (Helping Youth Proclaim Emmanuel) program was developed by a group of pastors and youth educators from three local churches. They saw a need for a larger community of youth to support each other and grow together in faith. This group is geared toward middle and high school students.

Vacation Bible School
We partner with another local church to offer an amazing VBS Camp in our Worship Center each June. For more information, please visit: http://www.resbalt.org/shipwrecked-summer-camp.html
