Children's Ministry

Wednesday Night 

During the school year, Children learn about the Bible while developing their faith and personal relationship with God. We learn how to serve God in our church as well as other missions. Come join us as we learn, grow, and have fun together!  Visitors are always welcome! 

Wednesday Night Schedule Will Be As Follows:

  • 5:00 – 6:00  Family Night Dinner Served
  • 5:30-6:00 Children’s Choir Practice
  • 6:00 - 7:00 – Children (Preschool-5th Grade) meet for fun activities, programs, Bible Study, Game Nights and Mission Projects

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.

Children’s Moments 

Children’s Moments are on the second and third Sundays of each month. During 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.

Seasonal Events

Various seasonal events are a part of the Children’s Ministry at Broadway United Methodist Church. Annual events include Preschool Track Meet, Bible Stories Come to Life, Mad Hatter Party, Children’s Christmas Party, Family Advent Workshop, Live Nativity, Brooks Stadium Baseball Game,  Easter Egg Hunt, Vacation Bible School, and Trunk-or-Treat. 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, filling Christmas stockings with warm scarves, gloves and hats and placing in our downtown area,  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.


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. Centershot will be part of the Wednesday Night Program in January 2022.   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.

Itty Bitty Broadway Bakers

Itty Bitty Broadway Bakers is a new program starting in October 2021. This class will offer an opportunity for children ages 3-6 to learn baking skills, cupcake/cookie decorating, etc. Each child will each have a chef’s hat and apron. Mrs. Rachel Benson will lead this class and teach the children a variety of skills and will include recipes that relate to Bible Stories.  We are excited to offer this opportunity to our younger children and can’t wait to see what they cook up to share with others! 

Mother’s Day Out
