Age 4 through rising 3rd grade (or older upon request of parents)
Harmony’s Children’s Worship is designed to provide a meaningful worship experience for younger children attending church on Sunday mornings and is offered during both services. We provide interactive stories, crafts, and games that follow the liturgical calendar as well as sermon topics to help children learn and grow in their Christian faith. Children’s Worship is staffed with loving, dedicated volunteers within our congregation.
Harmony UMC is dedicated to the spiritual enrichment of our children and youth. At Harmony, we recognize children learn best by doing. For ages K through 5th grade, we use the All-In-One Sunday School by Group Publishing. This curriculum involves active challenges, storytelling and play that are melded into learning experiences with carefully crafted questions to help kids tie Scriptural truth into their own lives.
A long standing tradition at HUMC is to present our third grade students with their own Bible. These kids then have the opportunity to learn to use their Bibles in Sunday School.
Care for children newborn-age 4
Harmony’s Nursery provides loving Christian child care for both services as well as the Sunday school hour on Sunday mornings. Our nursery is staffed with CPR and First Aid Certified employees that nurture our youngest Harmony friends. Nursery and child care are also offered throughout the year during special events as advertised.

Community Easter Celebration
Beginning in 2016, Harmony joined with Mount Zion UMC to invite the community to an Easter celebration at Hamilton Park. We have a really fun Easter egg hunt, crafts, and pictures with the Easter Bunny! We even have lambs and baby chicks to hold.
Family Advent Celebration
Harmony families celebrate the first Sunday of Advent with an evening meal and beautiful keepsake crafts including a traditional Advent Wreath. We also participate in a family cookie exchange at this special celebration.
Children’s Christmas Play
The Children of Harmony gather every year to celebrate the birth of Jesus with an adorable nativity play. Children young and old enjoy dressing up and acting out the different parts of the nativity as well as singing beautiful Christmas Hymns.
Trunk or Treat
Each year near Halloween, families gather in the church parking lot to decorate their trunks with child-friendly themes. Children and their parents can roam through the parking lot collecting candy and toys while they are dressed in their Halloween costumes.
