Sunday School

Sunday school classes are available for children ages 3 through Grade 5. Opportunities include Bible study, fun, fellowship, and mission activities throughout the year. 

Children’s Church

Children’s church is held the 2nd and 3rd Sundays of each month.  Children in Kindergarten through fifth grade have an opportunity to learn more about worship.  On these Sundays, children are dismissed from the sanctuary following Children’s Moments. They spend the rest of the service with two adult leaders learning about the Bible and being a part of a community of believers. (Plan to resume in Fall of 2021)

Children’s Moments 

During each worship time, children are invited to come to the front of the sanctuary for children’s moments.  An adult leader will present a “mini-lesson” that relates to the scripture and sermon for that day.  Children’s Moments are on the second and third Sundays of each month.

Seasonal Events

 Various seasonal events are a part of the Children’s Ministry at Broadway United Methodist Church.  Annual events include a Children’s Christmas Party, Family Advent Workshop, Easter Egg Hunt, Vacation Bible School, and Trunk-or-Treat for children ages 3 through grade 5. We also observe Children's Sabbath and actively seek to offer hope and love for all children around the world.

Kids in Mission 

The children are taught to serve God by serving others.  Missions the children have participated in include Operation Christmas Child, making blankets for the needy, visiting local nursing homes, shopping for needy children, helping at the Paducah Cooperative Ministry, etc.  Children learn the importance of helping others during these mission activities.

YUMS - (Young United Methodist Students)

YUMS meets each Wednesday from 6-7 p.m..  All Children in fourth and fifth grades are invited to attend! (Currently Not in Session)


This program is a Bible based archery curriculum where children learn to make God the "target" of their lives.  Each session includes time on the range as well as Bible study or devotion time.  Sessions run 8 weeks at various times throughout the year. Not only can children learn and grow, but parents and leaders can too! If you would like to volunteer as a leader, please call the church office.
