Milan UMC Children's Ministry

Leader: Janet Moore

Sunday School:  

Our Sunday School classes and programs are designed for Preschool through Elementary (Grade 5).  

Our classes begin at 9:00am and dismiss approximately 9:45am so that everyone can prepare for worship at 10:00am. 


Penny Raiders:

Penny Raiders is a charitable offering that the children collect during our worship service on the last Sunday of each month. 

These donations help support various local and regional ministries such as United Methodist Children's Home (Lebanon, IN), Milan Food Pantry and UMCOR related ministries. 


Vacation Bible School:   

Vacation  Bible School consists of one week in the summer, Monday thru Friday and this is a fun-filled week for Children, Preschool through 6th grade.  During this week, we have a mission where the children either bring in items or a monetary donation to help an organization based on the theme for the week.  The children work hard during this week and at the end of the week the children have prepared a program and closing ceremony for parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents or close friends.  We always have a closing party for the children to show our appreciation of them sharing their time with us for the week.



Event Parties: 

These Programs are designed for children Pre-school age through Grade 5.  

We hold 3 event parties a year. Our 3 event parties include a Fall Festival with a Trunk or Treat, a traditional Christmas Party celebrating Jesus’ Birthday,  and a traditional Easter Party with an Easter Egg Hunt at the close of this event.

Our Fall Festival, usually consists of games, prizes, snacks, crafts, hay rides and we close with a Trunk or Treat. This event is dedicated to our preschool and elementary children but is open to anyone who would like to join in our festivities for the evening.

Our Christmas Party, celebrates the Birth of Jesus, at this event, our goal is to teach the children another meaning of Christmas and that it is about more than just getting presents, but in the giving and learning why we celebrate.  Our theme for this party is a Birthday for Jesus.  This event includes, snacks, games, crafts and story time.


Our Jesus Loves You Party for Valentine's Day is a more laid back setting and is very specific to our preschool to elementary age children.  This event allows our children to come together and have fun with each other in a safe environment.  At this event we have music, crafts, snacks, games, and a photo booth.  At this event we encourage the children to come in their best outfit and be ready to have fun.


Our Easter Event is very specific to Easter and the tradition that it carries as far as what Jesus gave up for us.  This setting includes crafts, games, snacks and a story all around Jesus death and resurrection and why it is such an important holiday.
