Children at Cherrydale

All children are welcome at Cherrydale United Methodist Church! We know that today, families are always on the go, and this is precisely why we chose a Cheetah as our Sunday school mascot. During our time together on Sunday mornings we take time to make lasting friendships, and learn not just about God but seek to know God personally as we hear and learn about God’s promises for us.

We meet during the 11:00 am worship service. All families begin worship together in the sanctuary. Children Pre-K – 5th grade head upstairs to our Sunday School classrooms after the children’s moment early in the worship service.

We seek to share the love of Jesus with children and inspire them to become life-long Christ followers. We do this through a variety of activities including crafts, games, service projects and bible study. Children are an important part of Cherrydale. Our congregation intentionally includes children in worship, service and fellowship.

Join us for Vacation Bible School each summer. Watch for details about our plans for summer 2024!

Children’s music time takes place occasionally after Sunday School . We explore handbells, contemporary and choir music with different members of our congregation. The children perform in worship frequently and enjoy working together to “make a joyful noise!”

Our Sunday School teachers are background checked and participate in an annual child safety training. Contact office@cherrydaleumc.org for more information.

Cherrydale Mission Trips

Youth Group meets weekly on Sundays from 5 – 7 pm. We are excited that Bailey Jones, our Ministerial Intern from Wesley Seminary will be returning to lead our  2023/2024 youth group.

We also hold a variety of service projects and fun outings throughout the year. To find our more and join our youth email list, contact cherrydaleyouth@gmail.com  Check our online calendar too!

Our youth also have a strong tradition of mission work and have been on many trips – from Appalachia and Hurricane Sandy relief to Puerto Rico and Belize! The cornerstone of our youth program is training youth to be the hands and feet of Christ through service to others.
