10. Next Generation

CUMC Next Gen

What We Offer

Chickasaw UMC is committed to reaching our Next Generation!  We have ministry opportunities from “cradle to college” – all of which our built upon our church’s foundational mission statement of Loving God, Building Relationships, and Serving the World.

Our Nursery Ministry always has a paid staff person who has been background checked.  We have an updated nursery space filled with fun and interactive games and toys.  Our nursery staff will work with our toddlers and preschoolers to help them learn more about God through storybooks and fun coloring pages!  Available Sunday Mornings from 9 am – Noon; Sunday Evenings 5 pm – 6 pm; Wednesday Evenings 6:30 – 7:30 pm


We also offer a Pre-Kindergarten (ages 2-5) program on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8 am – noon or 8am-2pm; or 5 days a week from 8am - to noon or 8am - 2pm.  Our Chickasaw Kindergarten has a 40+ year history of providing a safe, loving, and enrichment-filled environment.  This program typically begins in the Fall, with registration open through early-Spring.


Our Kids For Christ (K4C) program offers a fun and engaging small group environment for Kindergarten – 3rd grade.  The focus of K4C are these four things:  Love, Learn, Worship, and Serve.  Before kids head off to middle school, our goal is to make sure they have a firm foundation in all four of these areas – but most importantly that they have built a relationship with Jesus.    Sunday Mornings 10:15 – 10:50, Wednesday evenings from 6:30 – 7:30 (field trips and fellowship events are generally scheduled on the 2nd Sunday afternoon or evening of each month)


EPIC (Excellent Preteens Inviting Christ) ministry is for our 4th grade and 5th grade kids.  We really work to partner with this age group through this exciting, but sometimes confusing, time of life.  Through small group experiences, we focus on exploring and enriching their relationship with Jesus and how that can influence every decision they make.  Sunday Mornings from 10:15 – 10:50, Wednesday evenings from 6:30 – 7:30 (field trips and fellowship events are generally scheduled on the 2nd Sunday afternoon or evening of each month)


Kid’s Worship is a fun and interactive large group worship service!  After Children’s Moment in both the 9 am and 11 am Church Services, our Kindergarten – 5th grade go to the chapel for their very own Worship Service filled with engaging music and dancing, as well as a “kid-friendly” interactive message, Bible Study, and prayer. (At the 9 am service, children are brought to the fellowship hall for pick-up or getting ready for K4C/EPIC program; At the 11 am service, children are brought back to the sanctuary during the closing hymn)   Sunday Mornings during 9 am Service and 11 am Service


Chickasaw UMC Students is our middle school and high school ministry.  The goal of Chickasaw Students Ministry is to create environments where students are encouraged to make wise choices, positively influence their friends, serve others, and experience personal growth through a relationship with Jesus Christ.  Sunday mornings from 10:15  - 10:50, Sunday evenings 5:00 – 6:00, Wednesday evenings 6:30- 7:30


When you graduate high school, you don’t have to graduate church too!  We recognize the importance of continuing to reach and strengthen relationships with our College & Career age group.  Through small group experiences that meet outside of the church walls at various local establishments (coffee shops, restaurants, etc.), this is fun and flexible group whose focus is on exploring a deeper faith and finding their place in the world as a disciple of Jesus Christ.  Monday Evenings 6:30
