Children & Youth Ministries

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” I Timothy 4:12

Our Children and Youth are a vital part of our Worship, Mission, and Ministry at Aldersgate.  We seek to incorporate these age groups in all we are as a church body.  For questions, please contact us below.

Ministry Safe Policy

Aldersgate Methodist Church is a Ministry Safe church. As a Christian community of faith, we pledge to conduct the ministry of the Gospel in ways that assure the safety and spiritual growth of all of our children and youth. Our purpose for establishing this Child/Youth Abuse Prevention Policy and Procedures is to demonstrate our absolute and unwavering commitment to the physical safety and spiritual growth of all of our children and youth.

Sunday School Classes

The Children & Youth Ministries Team is also responsible for the oversight of the Children & Youth Sunday School classes. Aldersgate offers separate Sunday School classes for Nursery, Preschool, Elementary, and Middle/High School Youth. Sunday School classes meet at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings.

Moments with the Children

During each Sunday’s worship service, Brother Chris invites all children to the front of the church for a special time of fun and learning about each week’s sermon, told on a child’s level of understanding.

Children’s Church

After the “Moments with the Children” during each Sunday’s worship service, children are invited to attend Children’s Church. Children’s Team Leader, Taylor Ann Johnson, teaches age appropriate lessons, and the children return to the sanctuary prior to the end of the worship service.

Easter Egg Hunt

Each spring, traditionally the weekend before Easter, Aldersgate hosts a community-wide Easter Egg Hunt. Eggs and candy are hidden all over our campus, and the Easter story is told to all the children. Don’t miss this great annual event!


Aldersgate provides a nursery for children newborn to 3 years old. The Nursery is available during all Sunday morning activities and services. Aldersgate provides child-care for any activities at the church, including Bible studies, special music events and more.

Confirmation Class

Confirmation classes teach children about beginning the process of becoming a church member. These classes are taught as needed.
