Education at North United Methodist Church is a priority.
Our Sunday School meets during the service with the children beginning their worship in the sanctuary with their families before moving down to their classrooms, except on communion Sundays when they begin with Sunday school and join the congregation for communion. Happily we have need of more Sunday school teachers as the numbers of children have increased recently. Let us know if this could be you!
We also have an enthusiastic Methodist Youth Fellowship group for students in grades 6-12, which meets during the service and at various times throughout the year. The focus of this group is on fellowship and outreach. They contribute periodically to the service within the church as well as providing service to the community.
