Activities for Kids at Parker United Methodist Church

Kids bring energy to every situation. We love the energy and life that kids bring to Parker United Methodist Church. Consequently we provide a large number of activities to grow their faith. Bible stories, music, and special events help bring kids and their families into a closer relationship with God, the most important relationship of all.

Journey With Jesus

Mission Projects

Each year, our children’s ministry works with various mission projects to help our children learn what it is to live outside of ourselves and help others.  Through these wonderful mission projects, children and their families work together to raise awareness of the needs of others, and learn what it really means when Jesus calls us to “love our neighbors as ourselves”.
