Growing Kids God’s Way
From newborns to 5th grade, the children at Putnam City are “raised up in the way children should go”…
The Children’s Department of PCUMC 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.
Music has an incredible capacity to teach creativity, discipline, and confidence. We will start on January 30 until April 10 from 6:30-7pm kids are welcomed in the choir room to learn songs and develop creativity in the world of music. They perform in the church service and some other events. This group is not meeting during the summer.
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.

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.
