Kids.Connect


Kids.Connect
helps children ages Preschool - 6th grade to connect with God, their church family, and with one another. Our desire is to help children to become life-long followers of Jesus Christ. We also hope that through Kids.Connect, families can learn to grow as Christians together. 


Kids.Connect
begins in our Sunday morning worship service at 9:30 am. Children attend worship with their families and are invited to come forward for a Kids.Connect message. They then follow their teachers to their classrooms, where from 9:45-10:45 they learn a Biblical story that is taught in a multi-dimensional format. We follow the Deep Blue curriculum published by Cokesbury, our United Methodist publishing house. Deep Blue includes Bible stories, science experiments, arts and crafts, animated video, storytelling and active games – combined into a living faith experience helping children discover what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ!

You can learn more about Deep Blue at deepbluekids.com.

Our Children's Ministry team are committed members of the church who love God and are devoted to sharing God's love with children. All are experienced teachers with a deep personal faith, have passed a background check, and follow our church’s safe sanctuary practices. The Children's Ministry team would love to welcome any children and families who desire to learn and grow in the Christian faith! For more information, contact Jennifer Filter, our children’s ministry director, at jennifer.filter@coralvilleumc.org.
