Children and Families

We believe that children and youth come first in the Kingdom of God. 

Our love-driven philosophy is to "train children in the right way, and when old, they will not stray." (Proverbs 22:6 )

Upcoming Events

Hang tight while we look up scheduled events...

Spiritual development

At NDUMC, we meet each child at their level of development, and help them grow on their own spiritual walk. We teach them the love of Christ, the joy of his forgiveness, the salvation and the truth of his word. And we encourage their growth in the body of believers.

We allow our children and youth to develop a relationship with God at their own pace. Nothing is more exciting than seeing young people flourish in their faith!

Children and youth at North Decatur are actively involved in worship, have age-appropriate Sunday School classes, and engage in fun events and activities through the year.

Sundays With Kids at north decatur

We hope you will make it a priority to bring your children to church, as the relationships your children form and the things they learn will be invaluable to them as they “try on” faith for themselves.


Children are welcome to attend worship with their families. We are requiring masks for everyone, in large part to keep our un-vaccinated children safe. We also provide a children's worship experience outside, in our garden. 


If you are a special needs parent and you have questions about how our worship and programs can accommodate your child, contact us!


At North Decatur UMC, we take seriously the responsibility to baptize infants and children into the faith, as we experience the grace that comes from God and find ourselves welcomed into the family of God. If you have children who have not been baptized (or if you have not been baptized yourself!), reach out to Senior Pastor, Rev. Patrick Faulhaber.
