Children's Ministries

We believe that every human being is valuable as a child of God, and we believe that every child deserves a safe and supportive environment in which to grow.  Every member of our staff and any volunteer that works with children or youth have had background checks and safe sanctuary training.   We want to help nurture your child's relationship with God.  We work to create an environment where each child feels welcome, loved by God, encouraged by their teachers and accepted by one another.


infant through age 3

A nursery is provided during each of our worship services.  

Nursery Care at Hampstead United Methodist Church is designed to provide a safe, enjoyable and loving environment in which infants, children (through age three) and adults can interact.  Rest at ease knowing your child is with loving and nurturing people while you worship.  

Sunday School

Age 4 through 5th grade

Sunday School is provided at 9:45 am throughout the year.  Sunday School at Hampstead United Methodist Church is a fun experience where children learn that God loves them, all of the time and forever!  We achieve this through hands on bible explorations, crafts, games and music.  Each 5th Sunday the children are asked to lead worship at our one service with song.  We love our children and believe they should be seen in church!

Power Kids

Age 5 years through 5th grade

Power Kids at Hampstead United Methodist Church is held on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm, throughout the school year.   We begin the evening with a meal and then the program begins at 6:30.  Power Kids is where each child learns about God in a most enjoyable way through, crafts, science projects, bible story, and journaling.  We believe that learning how to become more Christ-like should not be a chore; rather a character trait a child strives for.
