“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” – Proverbs 22:6

Children are one of the most important aspects of our church.  We offer programming for ages 6 weeks through 5th grade on Sunday mornings 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!

Babies & Toddlers

(6 weeks – 24 months old)

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 many weekday evenings for volunteers and Bible study participants that remain on Dacula UMC property.

Excite! Preschool

Excite! Preschool is designed for 2 year and 3 year old children. We share Bible stories, songs, crafts and games with the children to teach them God’s word in a relevant manner.

Excite! Junior

(Preschool – Kindergarten)   Excite! Jr is designed for children ages 4 years through Kindergarten. We offer age-appropriate curriculum that appeals to non-readers and share Bible stories, songs, crafts and games with the children to teach them God’s word in a relevant manner.


(1st – 5th Grade)

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. This program is all about fun, relevancy and teaching God’s word for everyday life application in a way that is easy to understand.
Modified Excite Schedule
October 2020 Children’s Ministry Schedule
As schools resume and most students are doing online lessons, the zoom call schedule will adjust going forward this fall. With most kids on devices and computers all week completing classwork, we will discontinue Wednesday night zoom to give them a technology break. Sunday morning Zoom will resume on August 16th at 11am. Kids ages 4 years – 5th grade are invited to join the Zoom calls. On Sundays we will discuss a monthly theme and bible stories that relate to the theme. Parent emails will be sent out on Sunday mornings with home activities, video links that reinforce the lessons and Zoom call links & passwords .
Take a look at the schedule (right) for the next two months, mark your calendars.
