WELCOME to North Scottsdale U.M.C. kids website!
We are a family friendly United Methodist church in Scottsdale, AZ.
Sunday School Classes
NSUMC offers children and youth Sunday School opportunities at 10:00 a.m. with traditional Sunday School. Our nursery is open for babies and toddlers at both our 8:30am and 10:00am services.
Our Sunday School teachers host a Godly Play worship experience for our children as part of their Sunday School classroom experience during our 10:00 a.m. service throughout the school year.
We are blessed to offer a weekday after-school program for children ages 5-12 years old. This creative group meets on Fridays from 3:30-5:00 p.m.
Summer Day Camp
North Scottsdale United Methodist Church’s 2021 summer day camp is entitled “ Adventure Island.” This camp adventure will be held Monday, June 21 through Friday, June 25, 9:00AM until 11:30AM at NSUMC. It is open to all children ages three through twelve. The registration fee is $45 per child for the entire week’s program.
At “Adventure Island” kids will discover five mysterious Infinity Lanterns to help light their way through life. They will learn how God's light can shine through them. This day camp offers interactive bible puppetry, super science experiments, creative crafts, energizing videos, and active games that are out-of-this-world!
Register online or call the church office at 480-948-0529 to request a registration form or visit on-line at http://www.nsumckids.info/vbs-day-camp.html and printout a registration form that can be returned to the church office (11735 North Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85254).
Every summer during NSUMC’s Summer Day Camp, camper families are asked to help us help other children. This year the request is a donation of Walmart Gift Cards for the PIMA TRADITIONAL SCHOOL community aide office. These gift cards will support children and families by helping them afford school supplies, clothing and the bare necessities to make their school life more comfortable. Pima Traditional School is a Title One school in south Scottsdale.
What SUMMER Sunday School will look like for NSUMC this year:
Our normal Sunday School in-person lessons will resume on Sunday, August 15th at our 10AM service.
