The UMC EverKids are the members of the UMC Evergreen community who are in Preschool-Fifth Grade. These young members of our church family are an extremely important part of the life of our church—both present and future. Therefore we strive to provide programs that fit their needs. In the UMC EverKids program we learn a lot and have a lot of fun. During the school year we meet on Sunday mornings at 9:30 on Zoom and at the 10:30 Worship Service. Nursery Care is provided at 10:30 for our infant– 2 year old EverKids.
Action Pack 9:30 on ZOOM
This Fall our EverKids Sunday School theme is Camping in the Kingdom, from Echo Imprint Curriculum. We will go on a weekly wilderness adventure as we learn all that God has to teach us. Echo Imprint's 3-in-1 curriculum teaches in a traditional, fully online, and hybrid learning model, so that students can learn at church, learn
remotely, or mix the two styles as needed.
Sunday School 10:30
Our Children’s Church program provides the UMC EverKids with a formal Sunday School curriculum. Children begin the 10:30 service in the sanctuary with their families and then participate in the Children’s Moment with the congregation. After that, the EverKids head downstairs to study age-appropriate materials in their classrooms. This Fall our EverKids Sunday School theme is Camping in the Kingdom, from Echo Imprint Curriculum.

The UMC EverKids Book Club consists of a readaloud chapter, a craft and a game each week. We meet from 4-5PM on Wednesday afternoons. We offer in-person meetings and a live stream, online participation via Zoom. Recorded sessions will also be available upon request in an online video format. We will be reading and talking about C.S. Lewis' classic children's series The Chronicles of Narnia, beginning with the first book to be published in the series: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Readers and non-readers are welcome. This club is intended for children in Preschool through 5th Grade. Purchase of a copy of the books is recommended but not required.
The UMC EverKids Program has lots of fun-filled special events year round! We host a Spontaneous Christmas Pageant on Christmas Eve, an Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday, an annual Fall Festival, a Trunk or Treat celebration near Halloween, Vacation Bible School in the summer, and on-going mission projects throughout the year.
Nursery Care is offered in the nursery downstairs during the 10:30 service. You can sit and enjoy your time communing with God in our sanctuary knowing that your children will be safe and sound, playing with our qualified and experienced nursery staff.
