Celebrate with JOY this Advent

Finding meaningful ways to connect with God and each other can be challenging during the busy holiday season. That's why our Children's Ministry team is giving away free Family Advent Boxes this year!
Each box is packed with resources and goodies to help your family re-discover the Christmas story and celebrate the joy of the season. Any family with at least one child 5th grade or younger can register to receive a box - while supplies last!
Note: When you register, please select just ONE person in your family. 
Reserve your Box!

We offer safe, fun environments where kids can have a blast growing in their faith. Our desire is to capture kids’ imaginations with the Bible and connect them with caring leaders who love them and their families.

Our kids' programs are available each Sunday during morning worship. We also offer the AWANA Club program and Vacation Bible School. Children can participate in all these activities regardless of church membership or affiliation.

For additional details, contact Children's Minister Mary McQuagge.

Sunday Mornings

In-person Sunday morning programs for children ages newborn through 5th grade have resumed following the COVID-19 shutdown. 

We will encourage masks for all children old enough to wear them properly, and our leaders will work hard to maintain social distancing and promote frequent hand washing and sanitizer.

For the health and safety of everyone, all participants will be required to stay at home if sick or have a fever.


For Parents


At Lynn Haven UMC, we love children and we're not just saying that! It is our desire for each child to know how much they are loved and cherished by God, their Creator. We offer fun, positive and uplifting programs that are kid-centered and interactive. As our area recovers from Hurricane Michael, we seek to ensure that our children are recovering emotionally and spiritually. We look forward to sharing the love of Jesus with your children and your entire family.
