At Bryson City UMC, we understand that parents are the primary influence in their child’s faith journey.  As a Church, we want to help our children develop a growing relationship with God.  Our Children’s Department combines love, fun, and Biblical lessons to strengthen and broaden that relationship. We offer Sunday School, Children’s Sermons (with Pastor Wayner’s Kisses from God), Children’s Church, and Vacation Bible School each summer. We encourage all children to participate!

Each Sunday, the children join the 11:00 Worship Service in the Sanctuary.  After the Children’s Sermon, they move to the Children’s Classroom for a fun-filled, hands-on, “Deep Blue” lesson.

Vacation Bible School

Summer will be here before we know it, and so will Vacation Bible School!

We are excited to announce this year’s Vacation Bible School theme titled “Rolling River Rampage.” Romper the River Otter will raft with us through VBS this year! We look forward to teaching the kids more about our church’s very own River of Life Ministry and how we can experience the ride of a lifetime with God! VBS dates for this year will be July 23rd – 26th from 5:30 – 8:30 each evening. Stay tuned for more information!
