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.

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.

• February 21st – “You’re Loved!”

• No FNL in March due to our “Get Plugged In” conference

• April 3 is Our Easter Egg-stravaganza! This is our church’s annual Easter Egg Hunt. Toddlers are invited but parents must accompany them throughout the evening.

Friday Night Live needs volunteers for

  • Meal Prep/serving/clean-up
  • Registration
  • Team Leaders

  • Craft Volunteers

(All volunteers must pass a background check – forms will be provided and the church pays for the background check.)

Children's Christmas Musical

We have a Children's Christmas Musical annually ehearsals for our 2019 Children’s Christmas Musical for kids ages 4 thru 5th grade. Rehearsals typically begin mid September.

Check back for updates regarding the 2020 Children's Christmas Musical.


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.
