About Group

At Park Slope United Methodist Church, families represent a diversity of ethnicity, race, and composition. Parents, grandparents, children, and other family members in the PSUMC community are encouraged to grow in the Wesleyan tradition of personal and social holiness. This ministry goes beyond Sunday school to offer families opportunities for spiritual formation, social justice, community outreach, and evangelism.

Park Slope United Methodist Church welcomes children preK-6th Grade for "one room schoolhouse" engaging Sunday school experience. Families do not need to be church members to participate in this free ministry. Sessions are multi-sensory and led by gifted, trained, and background checked teachers.

Throughout the year, we gather in person for times of connection.
Rev. Melissa is available to families for faith formation and prayer.

Our Sunday worship service at 11am is intergenergational with families and children participating and leading different elements in church on Zoom and church in the sanctuary. Children are welcome in the sanctuary and we are doing everything possible to provide a space that minimizes the risk of COVID19.

We continue to integrate families as worship leaders in church online and in the church building. Crayons and children’s bulletins are available in the sanctuary and children are invited up front (or in front of their zoom camera) for the children’s message. While we don’t have nursery care at this time, you are also welcome to take your child downstairs or to the playground if they need to get the wiggles out. There is also a toddler friendly row with board books and extra space.

In these challenging times we look forward to equipping children and families with a sense of resiliency and hope while being justice seekers and change makers. 

Sunday school is on Sunday morning during the 11:00 worship service. Please sign up to receive updates about our ministry with families.
