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.

Upcoming Day Trip!!

The Children’s Ministry is planning a trip to Asheville on Saturday, February 17 to enjoy the Mountain Play Lodge! It’s an indoor playground with all-day general admission for children under 12; there’s no charge for adults. The van will depart from BCUMC @ 9:30 AM. We will eat lunch before returning to the church mid-afternoon. All children riding in the van who normally ride in car seats will need to bring their seats with them to ride in the van. All children MUST wear socks to play on the play floor. Adults also must have socks on to be on the play floor to help supervise the kids. Please contact Michelle or Robert Stiles with any questions at or
