Young People

“Let the children come to me, and do not stop them;
for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.”
– Matthew 19:14


Sunday School – Deer Park UMC is ready for kids! Children begin the morning in worship, then leave the sanctuary and head to class with their teacher. We have multi-age Sunday School class every Sunday. We blend the church seasons (Advent, Lent, etc.) with Bible stories and apply the lessons to today’s community, home, school, and church. The children draw, paint, play games, hike (on our grounds), create crafts, tell felt board stories, sing, and do other exercises to learn the lesson of the day. Children frequently make a “take-home” piece to remind them of Christian behavior thoughout the week.
