hi-five FROM your kids' director

Hi!  My name is Amy Sizemore and I am the Kids' Ministry Director at Gardendale-Mt. Vernon UMC. We are so excited to have your kiddo join us!  

At GMV we strive to create an environment for kids that is fun and exciting but ultimately a place where they can grow in their faith and their relationship with Jesus Christ. When kids leave us each week- we want them to know that they have the capabaility of sharing Jesus and making a difference where ever they are.  

We also know the importance of linking with the family in order for their growth to continue. That is why we are considered an ORANGE ministry. The Orange curriculum is based off of the idea of the two major influences in a child's life coming together. The family and the church.  

To learn more about the ministry or how you can be involved- please feel free to email me at asizemore@gmvumc.org

safety & CHECK -IN

Your child's safety is our top priority. Every volunteer and staff member is screened with a federal background check. We also utilize the KidCheck system (click here for more information and registration) to distribute identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Each child will need to wear the name tag portion while the parent/guardian keeps the matching tag. After the service, you will return to your child's location and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you. You may check in your child at our conveniently located stations in the lobbies of the Gym and the Sanctuary.


Wonder what your kids are learning?  Looking for ways to continue the conversations throughout the week? The Parent Cue app offers CUES for families with preschoolers and elementary age kids. The Parent Time section has videos, podcasts and articles just for parents. Videos, activities, and discussion questions link to First Look (preschool)  and 252 Basics (kindergarten-3rd grade)  material. Content updates weekly.
