TO EMBRACE | TO CONNECT | TO SHARE
Maumee UMC Children and Family Ministries mission is to empower children to embrace, connect, and, share God's love! Recognizing that parents are the primary spiritual leaders in their lives, we support parents by equipping them with resources, guidance, and opportunities to engage in faith-building activities with their children. We strive to create a nurturing and inclusive environment where children can grow in their faith, build meaningful relationships, and learn the joy of sharing God's love with the world.
If it is your first Sunday joining us, you can look for a welcoming face at our Kid's Welcome Desk, located through the family entrance at Door C. From there, we will be happy to make sure you know where you are going, have enough hands to get there, and are fully registered. You can register in person or in advance online.

Maumee UMC Children's Ministry utilizes the Orange Curriculum, which imparts three fundamental truths that progressively build upon one another as the children grow:
Safe Sanctuaries at Maumee UMC means we pledge to engage in ministry in ways that assure the safety and spiritual growth of all of our children, youth, and vulnerable adults, as well as the servants who engage with these individuals. We follow safety measures in the selection and recruitment of servants. We implement operational procedures in all programs and events that provide safety and security. We train all of our servants annually and run national background checks every 3 years. We also have defined procedures for reporting suspected or witnessed incidents of abuse that conform to Ohio state law. We take the safety and security of our children, youth, and vulnerable adults very seriously and take measures to provide a reasonable level of protection for these populations.
