Pine Valley Children
Children’s ministries at Pine Valley UMC is building a strong foundation in the next generation of disciples.
From their first Sunday School lesson to their last day of Elementary school, we help encourage a faith-filled childhood through education and creativity. We use curriculum specific to their age and development while providing you with the support you need to help them with their first steps.
Our mission is to support and nurture the growth of all children and their families as disciples of Jesus Christ by offering spiritual opportunities that encourage knowledge of and a relationship with God. Our nursery is staffed with two paid nursery staff each week in addition to church volunteers. We staff the nurseries dependent on the number of children in each room.

Music and worship arts are an integral part of our children’s ministry here at Pine Valley, and there are opportunities for children of all ages to express their faith and lead worship. All three of our graded choirs meet at 4:00 on Sundays, sing monthly in worship, and present a major musical production each Christmas and spring. The Wee Cherub choir (ages 3-4) introduces our youngest singers to playing color-coded bells, singing simple songs, and age appropriate worship. In addition to singing, members of the Cherub Choir (grades K-2) and Chapel Choir (grades 3-5) are given opportunities to glorify God by participating in dance, drama, and outreach into the community.
Sundays, 4:00 in Room #103
