We offer a safe, fun environment for children to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Our Children's Ministry serves children (from infants to fifth graders) over the course of the school year and during the summer. We connect our kids to Christ through Sunday School classes, Friday Night Live, Summer Nights Live, a Children's Christmas Musical, and many special events. For more information, contact Pam Leskovac at pam@harlemroadchurch.org or at (740) 965-4543.

COVID-19 and Children’s Ministry at Harlem Road Church

On 02/28/2021 Nursery and Sunday School classrooms will be up and running at our 11am service. We will continue the routine of worshiping as a family in service and then partway through inviting our children to Sunday School. Children will be returned to their families before the service is finished so that we do not cause a bottleneck of people in our hallways.


Children's Sunday School

Harlem Road UMC has a Sunday school class just for you!  This entire year we are learning all about Jesus – so join us!  Here’s how it works:  You will stay w/your parents in the Family Life Center for opening worship (at both 8:30 and 11am services) and leave for Sunday school during the offering.  Parents can pick you up after the service in your classroom.  We have a mixed age class at 8:30am.  We have Toddler, PreK/K, Grades 1,2,3 and Grades 4-5 at the 11am service.  At 9:45 we have ‘Fun & Fellowship Time’ for kids whose parents attend an adult Sunday school class.  We do crafts, puzzles, games.  It’s fun!  If you have any questions, email:  pam@harlemroadchurch.org or call/text Pam’s cellphone:  614-507-1577

Friday Night Live (FNL) - Connecting kids to Christ!

Please invite all the kids you know to come out and join us!

FNL is our outreach to children ages 4 through 5th grade - where we do our best to connect kids to Jesus Christ. We start at 6:30 pm by gathering in the Family Life Center for dinner together and then we break up into age groups to go from station to station learning about Jesus using games, stories, crafts and sometime music. We end promptly at 8:30 pm. We ask that parents bring their children inside the building to sign them in. They must also come inside to sign their children out.

Children's Christmas Musical

We have a Children's Christmas Musical annually for kids ages 4 thru 5th grade. Rehearsals typically begin mid September.

Easter Sunday School Bags 2021

The Easter Bags are complete and ready to be delivered! Each of our children will be receiving their Easter Bag the week of March 1-5. Each bag has 8 weeks of Sunday school lessons (4 Easter lessons and 4 “Curious” lessons). Inside the bag there are Easter crafts, snacks, and plastic eggs stuffed with Easter candy for your very own Easter egg hunt at home. We will be placing the Sunday school lessons for Easter on YouTube before March 18 and the Easter lessons will run through April 4 - Easter Sunday

Since we are returning to “in-house” church, this will be the last of the Sunday school lesson deliveries. If you’re not returning to in-house worship at this time and would like your children to continue receiving these lessons, please contact Pam at pam@harlemroadchurch.org and we will get that in place for you. We certainly don’t want any of our kids to miss out on Sunday school!

Summer Nights Live (SNL)

Summer Nights Live is a free community children’s program for children age 4 through 5th grade that is held during the Summer (in June or July). SNL runs the same way our traditional FNL runs – only we don’t provide dinner during the summer event – and we add music to our evening. It is also a fast-paced, fun-filled evening for children. Kate Steele is our Director and we are staffed with 30 adults and many teen helpers.

Plans are underway for Summer Nights Live 2021 - WILDERNESS ESCAPE June 21, 22 & 23 from 6-8pm.

Regardless of whether we are gathering in person or continuing to worship from home, HRC will be hosting Summer Nights Live: Wilderness Escape, where God Guides and Provides!!
