Children’s Ministry

At NRUMC, we understand how children are the foundation of tomorrow’s church, even today’s church! There are a wide variety of children’s programs and activities to help them embrace the love of God and understand the teachings of the Bible and Wesleyan tenets of the Christian faith.

There are many opportunities for children and their families at NRUMC!


Located in the hallway adjacent to the Fellowship Hall/Atrium bathrooms, next to the Choir Robing Room. We have nursery caregivers who are Safe Sanctuaries and CPR trained.

9:45 Contemporary Service – Nursery care is provided during the Contemporary Service (Sunday School hour) for infants and toddlers (8 weeks through age 2). If your child turned 3 by August 31, 2021, they should attend Sunday School during this hour.

11:15 Traditional Service – Nursery care is available for all infants and toddlers 8 weeks through 3 years old.

Please be sure to fill out the 2021/22 Kids & Youth Registration Form to register your child for Nursery care!
