Children's Ministry

Children's Ministries at Archbold United Methodist Church are open to all Preschool-4th grade students.

J.A.M. Session (Jesus and me)

Kids age 4 to 4th grade are invited to spend their Wednesday evenings with J.A.M., Jesus and Me, at the Archbold United Methodist Church. J.A.M. is a safe, fun place to be with friends, play exciting games and learn about God. In order to make J.A.M. a sweet experience we are using the Fruits of the Spirit with extra Bible verses that illustrate each trait. Because our age groups span quite a few years and ability levels we spend time as one large group as well as two smaller, age appropriate groups. Come check us out! Join us on Wednesdays from 6:30pm-7:30pm in the AUMC Fellowship Hall and let Jesus be a part of you!
