Children’s Ministry

From the moment of birth, your child becomes an important part of the Alpharetta Methodist family. We are committed to being a faith community that surrounds you and your child with love, care, nurture and hope. We pray you will find many opportunities for your child to grow in their spiritual journey.

In person gatherings are cancelled during the pandemic. Visit our Children’s Ministry Facebook page for Sunday lessons and activities.

Our Children’s Ministry is focused on loving and
sharing our faith with kids, from birth-5th grade.

Elementary Worship will be offered for kindergarten-3rd grades.

The doors to our children’s wing will open 15 minutes prior to each worship hour.

Family Faith Talks

Our Children’s Ministry is Partnering with Parents to help you with discipleship at home. The book, “Family Faith Talks” is our gift to you, as it is filled with simple ideas to help you include God in your everyday activities. It provides over 100 practical ways to talk with children about God. There are game ideas, questions to ask, Bible verses to read, and prayers to pray. You might be surprised at how eager your kids are to learn from you!

Our Children’s Ministry Staff is putting together a fun Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt Kit for your kids! Each kit will contain a dozen eggs. Inside each egg is a fun treat and a clue that tells the Easter Story from the Bible. Hide the eggs around your home or yard for your kids to discover! 

You may order one kit per child in your household. Select one of three pickup or delivery options at the end of March.

Club 45

Sundays, 9:45-10:30 p.m.
via Zoom

Club 45 is designed specifically for 4th and 5th grade preteens. We know that preteen years can be awkward, and they sometimes can feel a little out of place. In Club45 we want every preteen to feel like they belong. Our purpose is to create a space for preteens to experience God, ingraining his truth into their hearts, which will anchor their lives. We believe that, with community, competition, connection, and leadership, we will be able to create an environment of growth for preteens.

Meetings are weekly on Sundays at 1:30 p.m., for Sunday School. Meetings are currently on Zoom. (Email Vic Harmon to receive the Zoom link.) We gather together to dive deeper into God’s Word.

Once a month we meet for a couple hours and play fun games, participate in a service project, and enjoy small group discussions. Every year, we participate in the the North Georgia United Methodist Church’s Fall Retreat at Camp Glisson, as well as provide a day camp during the summer.

If you have any questions about Club 45 programming, please email Victoria (Vic) Harmon.
