FamiliesAt Hudson UMC, worship isn’t just for grown-ups. We actively encourage kids to participate, too. Every Sunday, the service includes a children’s sermon and then children's time with a lesson and games for kids from ages 4 years old through 3rd Grade. You’ll also find children’s worship bulletins and “activity bags” (for ages 3-8) hanging on the tree just outside the sanctuary door.
Child Care during Worship
Child care is available for infants through 3-year-olds during Worship. We offer an optional extended session of Children’s Time for children age 4 through 3rd grade after the Children’s Sermon. Child care is also offered during the Sunday School hour for infants through 3-year-olds. Each child will need to be signed in and signed out by a parent or guardian.

All students in grades 3-5 are invited to attend a fun day to learn how to use your Bible. On the Sunday following the Bible Workshop, Hudson United Methodist Church gives Bibles to our 3rd graders or for students attending the workshop for the first time. Students are invited to attend every year! Any students (3rd grade and up) who do not have their own Bibles and would like one are asked to contact the Family Ministries Office.

Safe Sanctuaries – A Safe Place For Kids
HUMC maintains a safe environment for vulnerable persons (children, youth, or adults whose behavior indicates that he or she is mentally or emotionally incapable of caring for themselves or their interests, or who may be unable to protect themselves from abuse, neglect, exploitation, sexual abuse, or emotional abuse by others). Following guidelines set by the General Conference of the United Methodist Church, our Safe Sanctuaries policy mandates that everyone with the potential to be entrusted with vulnerable persons in church activities receive formal training and take a refresher course every three years.
Jr. and Senior High Youth Group discussions (Grades 6-12) will focus on Jesus-centered discussions about relationships with our families, our friends, our church, the community, and issues impacting youth on a regular basis.
In Confirmation class, we study the teachings, prayer, and parables of Christ as well as United Methodist history and doctrine. Confirmation class is also a spiritual experience that encourages our youth to explore their personal faith. This class is designed for 7th grade and above and is offered every other year. Please contact Kerrie Book for more information.
