Childcare

University UMC wants Sunday mornings to be the best part of every child’s week. Our excellent team of caregivers provides a safe, warm and loving environment for babies through toddlers during our worship services and Sunday morning classes. We make every effort to promote positive feelings about church and being part of God’s family—not just for children in our care, but also for parents. Parents are required to sign their children into and out of the nursery to ensure security. For more details about our Sunday morning childcare program, contact Natasha Ulack, Director of Children’s Ministry.
