Growing in Christian Faith

Growing Kids God’s Way

From newborns to 5th grade, the children at Generations United Methodist Church  are “raised up in the way children should go”…

The Children’s Department of Generations @ Putnam City UMC is constantly stretching and growing seeking ways to share the love of Christ with the little children who mean so much to Him. Every kid is precious and deserves to know that. We have lots of great opportunities to teach them this, and here are a few happening in this spring and summer season! Please let us know if you have any questions, and please don’t hesitate or call or email.

Regularly Scheduled Amazingness 

Sunday School

Every Sunday morning 9:30 to 10:30 in children’s wing on the west end of the church – kids come together to spend time getting a deeper understanding of what it means to believe in Jesus. This allows children to ask questions, get answers, and enjoy each other company. We aim to teach key Biblical truths and stories that build a strong foundation by looking at the Bible in multiple creative ways suited to a variety of learning styles. Our volunteers guide each child while creating a safe and loving environment where everyone can cultivate their relationship with Christ!

Every Sunday, children have the opportunity to attend “Holy Word Town” Children’s church where they learn skills and concepts that are foundational to anyone seeking to know Christ deeper, no matter how old one may be. This kid friendly mirror of the adult service also functions as a valuable transition steppingstone for little ones who are not used to the expectations and traditions of a full-blown adult worship service. In “Holy Word Town” Children can have fun and dance while learning the Holy Word!

Boys & Girls Scouts

A great place for kids large and small to make friends and learn more about the world, the scouts span all ages and are constantly active learning new skills, going on camp outs, and having a great time. For more information on scouts see their page and contact the leadership. Boys meet Monday night, Girls on Thursdays.


And more throughout the year including: 

Trunk or Treat

For kids’ enjoyment, adults decorate the back of their cars for Halloween, load up on candy, and come sit in a parking lot for kids to “trick or treat” from car to car. 

Christmas Theatrical Spectacular Of Greatness Presentation

Each year we remember and reenact the nativity story of Mary and Joseph’s life where they journeyed to Bethlehem for the birth of Jesus.

Easter Egg Hunt

For Christians, the Easter egg is symbolic of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. An egg hunt involves hiding eggs outside for children to run around and find on Easter morning. 

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

VBS offers contextualized Christian content that is Bible-based and relevant for preschool, primary, junior, teen and adult students. It is designed to strengthen and prepare students to learn how God walked with heroes of the Bible, and that God is always with us, too. Add to the adventure with out-of-this-world fun, learning, and timeless Bible stories that inspire kids to give glory to God, who is able to do far beyond all that we could ask or imagine!
