Welcome to CUMC Children's Ministry

We believe Sunday morning should be the greatest time of each child’s week! Our schedule and curriculum are prayerfully planned and coordinated to actively engage kids and nurture them as they discover God, His world, and His plan. We assist children and parents as they develop and deepen their personal relationship with Jesus through prayer, worship, study, and FUN! Our teachers are prayerfully chosen for their faithfulness, love for children, and for their spiritual gifts. All teachers are Safe Sanctuary trained and have the opportunity to attend workshops and training sessions throughout the year. 

We welcome you to visit at any time. If you should have a child with special needs, please let us know so we may have our SonFlower Ministry trained staff come and assist you.

Slugs & Bugs Live Comes to ChapinUMC Sunday, April 23rd!


Join us Sunday, April 23rd, 2017 at 4:00 pm at ChapinUMC for a joy-filled musical experience featuring animated videos, energetic vocals, and exuberant piano, guitar and mandolin instrumentals!

Randall Goodgame (former “Silly Song” writer for VEGGIETALES) is a former worship pastor and the driving force behind Slugs & Bugs. Randall has brought the Slugs & Bugs Live concert into 39 states and 10 countries. Slugs & Bugs videos have surpassed 4.6 million views on YouTube, and most importantly, countless families have been encouraged toward a deeper walk with Jesus while having a great time together.

The concert is geared toward elementary school age children and their parents. Age appropriate Gospel encouragements are woven throughout the concert, and Randall's heart is for families to leave with a deeper understanding of Jesus' love for them.

Slugs & Bugs music rollicks from bluegrass to Dixieland to folk-pop to arena rock with songs you’ll be glad you remember long after the concert is over.
