Kids.Connect


Kids.Connect
helps children ages Preschool - 6th grade to connect with God, their church family, and with one another. Our desire is to help children to become life-long followers of Jesus Christ. We also hope that through Kids.Connect, families can learn to grow as Christians together. 

Kids.Connect begins in our Sunday morning worship service at 9:30 am. Children attend worship with their families and are invited to come forward for a Kids.Connect message. They then follow their teachers to their classrooms, where from 9:45-10:45 they learn a Biblical story that is taught in a multi-dimensional format. We follow the Deep Blue curriculum published by Cokesbury, our United Methodist publishing house. Deep Blue includes Bible stories, science experiments, arts and crafts, animated video, storytelling and active games – combined into a living faith experience helping children discover what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ!

You can learn more about Deep Blue at deepbluekids.com.

Our Children's Ministry team are committed members of the church who love God and are devoted to sharing God's love with children. All are experienced teachers with a deep personal faith, have passed a background check, and follow our church’s safe sanctuary practices. The Children's Ministry team would love to welcome any children and families who desire to learn and grow in the Christian faith! For more information, contact Jennifer Filter, our children and family ministry director, at jennifer.filter@coralvilleumc.org.

 

 

 

What's New

Our building is open and all are welcome to attend worship in-person at Coralville UMC! Our worship is on Sunday mornings at 9:30. To all who have missed gathering in our sanctuary for 15 long months, welcome back! To all who are joining us for the first time, welcome! For the safety of our children who cannot yet be vaccinated and for those who are immuno-suppressed, we request that everyone wear a mask. We will have masks available for those who don't have one.

We will continue streaming live from Facebook on Sunday mornings at 9:30 as well. All are welcome! You can find our Facebook page by clicking the icon at the top of this website. Or, you can find it here: Facebook CoralvilleUMC

Our current worship series follows the book of Ephesians in which we are exploring how God has chosen us to be adopted together as a family in Christ and consider how that impacts our own faith stories. Song lyrics for this Sunday can be found here: Songs for Worship July 25    Those of you following the live-stream are encouraged to sing along. Unfortunately, we will not have congregational singing in the sanctuary yet for safety reasons. But we will have beautiful music as always!


Now there are three ways for you to make contributions to CUMC!


At Coralville UMC we affirm people of all ages, races, ethnicities, cultures, gender identities, sexual orientations, physical and mental abilities, and socio-economic status. We believe that prejudice, hatred, or discrimination directed toward any individual or group is contrary to the life and spirit of Jesus Christ.  Therefore, we shall work to eliminate prejudice and discriminatory practices within ourselves and our community, and to show grace, in Jesus’ name.

We stand together in solidarity with the family of George Floyd and with people of color in our congregation, our communities, and around the world.
