Welcome to Graysonkids, our GUMC Children’s Ministry!

We’re so glad you’re here! Take a look below at all our different Graysonkids ministries and we hope to see you on Sunday, or Wednesday night, or any day in between!




We can’t wait to see you each Sunday! This school year we’ll be learning more about the New Testament as we walk from Matthew all the way to Revelation. Join us each Sunday at 9:39 for small group Sunday School and at 11:00 for Graysonkids Glee Club and Preschool Praise and Worship!

We require that each child who comes on Sunday mornings have an information form on file — on your first visit, you will need to fill one out for your child. You can find them at our Graysonkids Greeter Desk outside of the Children’s Ministry office (Room 217). Please contact Katie Atcheson at katie@graysonumc.org for any questions.

Where does your child go on Sundays? See below:

9:39: (Contemporary Service/Sunday School)
Pre-K 3 – Room 232
Pre-K 4 – Room 231
Kindergarten through 5th grade – Rooms 218-226, upstairs on the Graysonkids Hallway

11:00: (Traditional Service/Kids’ Worship)
Ages 3 and 4 – Room 221 for Preschool Praise and Worship

We also have a loving, caring staff of workers in all of our “lil Graysonkids” nurseries!  Nursery is available at all three services on Sunday mornings (8:30 a.m., 9:39 a.m., 11:00 a.m.), Wednesday nights (for those volunteering or attending a Bible Study class) and most other church-wide events.

  • The Infant Nursery in Room 106 includes babies from birth to
    1 year olds who are not yet walking.

  • The Toddler Nurseries in Room 114 and Room 115 include walkers,
    1 year olds, and 2 year olds.

All staff who work with children have been through Safe Sanctuaries Training. 


GraysonKids Glee Club

Join our Graysonkids Glee Club as our kids grades Kindergarten through 5th grade will have the opportunity to sing and dance and work towards a children’s performance to honor our God! We will meet each Sunday during the 11:00 hour in Room 222. Can’t sing? Doesn’t matter – we will all make a joyful noise! Not so sure of being in front of others? That’s ok – we have a spot for you nonetheless! We can’t wait to worship our God through song and dance!

Our 2019 Christmas performance will be on Sunday, December 8th at our 9:39 service!


Preschool Praise and Worship

Hey Preschoolers! Join us as we praise and worship our God during the 11:00 worship hour! We’ll meet in Room 221 as we sing and praise our great God! Preschoolers who are Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4 are invited to be a part.




Join us for Graysonkids on Wednesdays throughout the school year! Pre-K 3 year olds through 4th graders meet from 6:00-7:30 p.m. for a time of worship, Bible study, fellowship, and FUN!

Graysonkids on Wednesdays meets every Wednesday running from August 14th, 2019 through March 25th, 2020, breaking for Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. We can’t wait! We hope you will join us!

Trunk or Treat

Our Trunk or Treat is Sunday, October 27th from 5-6:30 p.m. We’ll have free food, bouncies, face painting, balloon art, hot air balloon rides, and lots of candy! Come dressed up, and we’ll have a trunk-or-treating bag for you! We are so excited to see you there!

We need lots of trunks to make this even possible. Want to enter your car or volunteer at the event? Register your trunk below!

We ask that every family pre-register if you plan to attend our Trunk or Treat.
