children's sunday school


Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." - Matthew 19:14


This scripture has long been central to the congregation of Foothills UMC. We strive to provide education and special events and activities so that children may grow in their understanding of themselves and the Christian faith.


Sunday School

Join us for Sunday School , starting in the 9:30 AM worship service.


All children participate in the first part of the worship service in the sanctuary including the Children’s Message, held especially for them up front with Pastor Mike or another church leader. After the Children’s Message, kids and youth are led to Sunday School for the remainder of worship time. We have loving and enthusiastic volunteers who teach fun and interactive lessons each week. Children may also remain in worship with their families if they wish. There is a fabulous playground that is open before and after church for kids and their families to enjoy.


Nursery - Preschool

Room 1 (Infants to Kindergarten)

We offer a professionally staffed nursery for our littlest ones. Loving arms, bouncers and swings keep the babies happy – while the toddlers enjoy games, crafts, toys and Bible stories that stimulate and entertain too! Parents can feel safe knowing that their children are being watched by certified and screened caregivers. We have pagers so that parents can be contacted in the sanctuary if their little ones need mom or dad for any reason. Lessons center around the basics of being kind and caring to others and the introduction of classic biblical stories. We also have rockers just outside the sanctuary where moms or dads can rock or have the kids wander and plan and still listen to the pastor's sermon.


Pre K - 2nd Grades

Room 2

Our younger elementary kids use the Godly Play curriculum with Bible stories, time to wonder and re-enact the stories, games and crafts as well. Kids enjoy learning the age-old tales of the Bible while imagining themselves in the story! Prayer time and feast (snack) are included too. (Please let us know if your child has any food allergies.)


3rd - 5th Grades

Room 4

Our upper elementary kids dive deeper learning about the Bible, prayer, helping others, and so much more. We use lessons that are molded to the activeness of this group. Games, crafts, and fellowship time are also a meaningful part of Sunday school.


Family Worship

Join us at 11:00 AM!

This worship gathering is designed for people who would like more freedom in creating the kind of worship experience they might need in any given week. A great opportunity for parents and grandparents who would like to worship together as a family with their children. We offer child and youth-friendly faith builders and activities during this service. Music from a spectrum of styles and genres offered by a trio of great musicians.


youth sunday school


Youth are a very important part of our church family and we want them to feel welcome and safe, to learn about and be challenged by the Christian faith in a place where questions can be asked freely and no one is left out. Where they grow a strong faith.

Junior High

Room 8 (6th - 8th Grades)

The Jr. High program is all about being yourself and living in a fun and gracious way! Spirited discussions about real life topics, acting out stories and lessons, biblical readings, and stories of youth who make a difference in lives of others, make up this great class.


Senior High

Room 5 (9th-12th grades)

The Senior High program is all about understanding and strengthening your relationship with God. Lessons take real life issues and give you ways to explore and deal with them from a Christian perspective. Through fellowship, prayer, service projects, and spiritual formation, we want you to be empowered to be yourself and know you always have a home in Christ.

We participate in the Sierra Service Project every summer and offer confirmation classes for youth to explore their faith and beliefs on an even deeper more personal level.
