Children are one of the most important aspects of our church.  We offer programming for ages 6 weeks through 5th grade on Sunday mornings, Wednesday evenings and at numerous events throughout the year.  Our programming is age appropriate and designed to be fun, engaging and full of energy!  We believe as in Proverbs 22:6 states:  “Start children off on the way they should go,  and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”  Everything we do aims to lead our children in the right direction.  We hope to see you soon!
Our nursery staff is dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing, loving environment for your precious little one.  All nursery workers have passed an extensive background check prior to employment with Dacula UMC.  We offer nursery care during our worship services and on Wednesday evenings for volunteers and Bible study participants that remain on Dacula UMC property.  We are unable to care for babies in the nursery if parents leave the property.
We offer three different Excite! programs on Sunday mornings during our 9:30 and 11:00 services: Excite! Preschool, Excite! Jr and Excite!.  These programs are held the first four Sundays of each month.  We invite children to worship with their families in the main sanctuary during months that have a fifth Sunday (4/29, 9/30 & 12/30).
Excite Preschool is designed for 2 year and 3 year old children. Excite! Jr is designed for children ages 4 years through Kindergarten.  We offer age-appropriate curriculum that appeals to non-readers.  We share Bible stories, songs, crafts and games with the children to teach them God’s word in a relevant manner.
Excite! is designed for elementary age children in grades 1st-5th.  Excite! is an action=packed hour that includes large group activities as well as small group learning activities.  This program is all about fun, relevancy and teaching God’s word for everyday life application in a way that is easy to understand.  Our current lessons and themes can be found here.
  Wednesday Night SPARK (6:30 p.m. to 7:30 pm.)
SPARK is designed for children ages 4 years old (Pre-K) through 5th grade. We gather to learn, explore and demonstrate basic concepts of our faith. Our night is full of fun, games, crafts and music in a very relaxed environment.  

SPARK will meet Jan. 10th – March 21st (Except for Feb 14th, Ash Wednesday).

After Spark begins at 7:30pm and concludes at 8pm.  We offer supervised free time or homework help for children ages Pre-K through 5th grade whose parents are volunteering or participating in choir or Bible studies.
Parents are required to remain on church campus while your child participates in SPARK.
