Whitney UMC has a vibrant Family Life Ministry, serving the children and families of the Whitney UMC family and community.
Welcome to Family Life Ministries at Whitney United Methodist Church. Our purpose is to provide resources and tools that help our little ones, youth, and their grown-ups grow accustomed to living out a vibrant life of love that is given to us by our Creator, Savior, and Holy Spirit.
Nursery and Intergenerational Worship: Our nursery is open from 9:30 until 11:00 during worship on Sunday mornings! Little ones up to the age of 5 are welcome. Children over the age of 5 are welcome to come join us in worship either sitting with their families or spending time at our “messy” table in the back where all are welcome, regardless of age or ability. Each week, our congregation will hear a quick message and children especially are welcome to expand on that message with materials and activities provided at the back table where they can color, draw, create, or read! Our kids and their families are often involved in traditional worship and having them at the table in the room enriches us all!
Quick Message: These messages are delivered in an accessible and intergenerational format, often with children and other members of the church community actively participating.
Our Creation Care series explored how God uses nature, animals, and food as a teacher for how to live in Christian love and discipleship. We are also challenged to stretch our circle of “neighbor” to include the various elements of God’s creation, including the soil, the water, plants, insects, and animals. This series is meant to remind us that we are all intimately connected to Creation and uniquely responsible for loving stewardship.
Our Advent series explored the traditional themes of Advent, through quick messages and creating a communal art poster.
