The mission of HUMC’s Children’s Ministries is to create and support a church environment where children experience God’s love and become Christian disciples. 

 

We offer Children’s Sunday School programs for 2 year olds – 5th grade (youth programs are also available for 6th – 12th grades) during our 10:30 worship service. Our nursery is available during the 9:00 worship service. We base our classrooms on your child’s age/grade by Sept. 1.  We use a variety of curriculum that help our children grow in their faith and get passionate about God’s word.  During the summer we DO offer Sunday School, but room assignments and curriculum may vary.

  • 2 year old classroom – room 109
  • Preschool classroom (3-5 yr. olds) – room 104
  • Younger Elementary classrooms (Kindergarten – 3rd grades) – rotate between 3 different classrooms – rooms 101, 102 & 108
  • Older Elementary classroom (4th & 5th grades) – Heritage House – south room

TopicParents will practice the 5 steps for self-regulation so children can learn healthy responses to emotional upset, and be able to calm and regulate no matter what happens life. To be able to help children learn to self-regulate, adults must use the Power of Love, which encourages us to see the best in others. From the Power of Love, we gain the Skill of Positive intent.  Attributing positive intent to children integrates the brain; increasing the capacity for trust, safety and moral behavior.

Cathy Lancelotta, Director of Heritage Preschool and Conscious Discipline, Certified Instructor will be presenting for this Conscious Discipline Family Forum.
