Welcome to Etowah UMC Children and Family Ministries.


Our goal is to offer ways for your child to experience the love of Jesus and explore their faith in creative ways, while also supporting you as a parent to grow as a Christian and as a parent. Below you will find ongoing ministries for children at EUMC.

Kidz Club
Kindergarten-5th grade
We meet every Sunday at 10am for 45 minutes in the Youth Room during the Community Hour (in between the 9am and 11am services)! Each meeting includes worship, a lesson, and activities that are fun for both children, families, and volunteers!

The curriculum we use for our Children's Ministry is from the Grow Curriculum.
