Sunday School

JCUMC is a Safe Sanctuary church.  Teachers and workers attend training and have passed a background check.  Children are signed in and checked out by parents or other authorized adults.

The Ark (3,4,&5 year old): 9:45-10:45

The 3, 4, and 5-year-olds meet in their classrooms by 9:45on the 1st floor of the Education Buildin. Students will have Circle Time in classrooms, then go to the Media Center to learn the Bible lesson and participate in activities. Students return to classrooms for snack, games, and craft. Parents pick up kids at 10:45 from their classrooms: 3-yr-olds (by September 1st)- Room 144
4-yr-olds (by September 1st)- Room 153
5-yr-olds/Kindergartners - Room 164

The Quest (1st grade-5th grade): 9:45-10:45

    Children check-in and begin in the chapel. We will have 20 minutes of large group time, then move to classrooms for games, crafts, and snack. Parents pick up children at 10:45 from their classrooms:

    1st Grade- Room 123
    2nd Grade- Room 119
    3rd Grade- Room 116A
    4th Grade- Room 122
    5th Grade- Room 120

    New! Children’s Church (age 3 – 3rd grade): 11:00-12:00

    Children begin in the sanctuary. After the “Time for Young Disciples,” children will travel to the chapel for the remainder of worship time. Parents pick up their child in the chapel after the worship service is over.

    Registration (Once per school year)

    Each school year, every family needs a new registration form. These forms will be available at Sunday School check-in (at the chapel and in the media center) and at Children’s Church check-in (at the sanctuary welcome desk).

    Check-In (Every Sunday)

    If your family is arriving for Sunday School (9:45),
       Check in QUEST students in the chapel (1st grade – 5th grade)
       Check in ARK students at their classroom (3’s in 144; 4’s in 153; 5’s in 164).
       If your family is arriving for Children’s Church (11:00)
       Check in at the welcome desk in the narthex.

    Staying for both programs?

    If your family is staying for both Sunday School and Children’s Church, keep their name tag on. No need to check in twice. QUEST parents should pick up their children to sit as a family in the sanctuary while they wait for the “Time for Young Disciples.”
    ARK families may also pick up their children from Sunday School to sit together as a family in the Sanctuary. ARK has a second option: a Sunday School Teacher can walk them to the sanctuary to wait for the “Time for Young Disciples.”


    The Nursery is available for children newborn to age 3 from 8:45 am to 12:00 noon Sunday mornings. Childcare is also provided from 9:45 am – 12:00 noon for children age 3 years to 5 years in the Nursery area. Children attending The Ark Sunday School will be transferred to their class rooms at 9:45 am.

    Children are divided among our four nursery rooms according to age and mobility. Nursery classrooms are located on the 1st floor of the Education Building in Rooms 158-161.
    If you have any questions about your child and the nursery please contact our Nursery Directory, Vicki Kratzer.

Johns Creek UMC is a Safe Sanctuary church and all students must be picked up either by a parent or another authorized adult.
