Children’s Programming

Church School is currently meeting in-person & masks are required.

Our Church School meets Sunday mornings starting after Labor Day and continues through June each year. Beginning in the sanctuary our “Children’s Conversation” arrives early in our 10am service and then both children and youth are dismissed to their appropriate classrooms. All children ages pre-k through high school are welcome and encouraged to attend!

NUMC’s Nursery is also an option for parents of infants and toddlers. Should you wish to make use of this service, please alert one of our greeters so that we may coordinate with our program leader.

If you are interested in registering your child(ren) for either program, please contact our Church School Leader at churchschool@newtown-umc.org.

NUMC also follows and maintains a Safe Sanctuary Policy. We invite you to read the following information should you have any questions regarding the volunteers entrusted with caring for our children.

Adult Programming

Bible Study is currently meeting via Zoom on Wednesdays.

Our adult Bible Study meets immediately following our 8am service whilch allows worshipers attending either service (8am or 10am) to conveniently attend. We meet informally in the Betts Conference Room and follow the same schedule as our Church School, meeting September through June. We are an informal group who enjoys both the fellowship and continued study of the Bible. Registration is not required and anyone may join at any time throughout the year.

Our Small Group Study is currently meeting via Zoom.

Our Small Group Study meets periodically throughout the year at 7pm on Tuesday evenings. Topics are announced well in advance and each session runs anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks, depending on the program. Members are encouraged to obtain the selected book in order to gain as much as possible from our study and discussions. Once again, we are an informal group and welcome anyone who wishes to explore the intersection of our world and faith in more depth.
