"Nurturing our children's relationship with God."
We partner with parents, grandparents, and guardians in a very important task — raising the next generation of believers and servants! From crafts to choirs, stories to missions, Brunswick United Methodist has children's programs that nurture kids' souls. We use a wide variety of activities — mission projects, music, arts and crafts, discipleship, and just plain fun. Our children learn the fundamentals of the Christian faith while developing a strong spiritual foundation and a sense of belonging in the community of faith.
At Brunswick United Methodist we offer a wide variety of activities for children. For more information about each of our programs, we invite you to read through the descriptions below:
During the school year we offer Sunday School classes each Sunday morning from 10:30 AM-11:30 AM for children ages preschool through Senior High. Our enthusiastic Education Team provides fun kids' programming throughout the year, including Christmas and Valentine's Day parties. We also sponsor an annual Easter Egg Hunt and Trunk or Treat event that are popular with the whole community. During summer months, students and teachers enjoy a holiday — older children join parents, guardians and grandparents in the worship service, while younger children (through 5th grade) enjoy Children's Church (sometimes held outside in our gazebo!) consisting of a Bible Story and a simple craft or other hands-on activity.
NEW! Led by our own High School-age youth, C2C ("Children to Christ") is a dynamic once-a-month VBS-style Sunday morning program that engages the whole child — body, mind, and spirit — in the faith-learning process. It's a match made in heaven. Nothing fascinates a young child more than a teenager! Likewise, the older teens enjoy a sense of importance as role models for their younger peers.
Wednesday Night Children's Program
A mid-week evening program at Brunswick United Methodist for grades pre-K through 6 led by Pastor Bob Spaulding, the Wednesday Night Children's Program incorporates Bible lessons, snacks, games, crafts, and singing to make this the highlight of the week for many local families. Music plays an important role in the learning process and in the fun — the "Wednesday-Nighters" present several highly-anticipated Bible-based musical dramas each year.

Youth Programs and Youth Mission Trip
Brunswick United Methodist Youth are extremely active as they learn about the love of Christ. Of course they get together for fun activities, such as trips to Cedar Point, thematic weekend retreats, white water rafting, and Christian music concerts and theater presentations, but they also lead worship services and go on an annual mission trip where they provide service acts for another community in need. High on the list each year is attendance at the United Methodist Youth Conference at the East Ohio Annual Conference at Lakeside, Ohio in June.
