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 a children and youth Sunday School opportunity 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.
North Scottsdale UMC will be offering One Room Sunday School at the 10AM services. Our Sunday School teachers will meet your children in the fellowship hall for a One Room Sunday School class. The fellowship hall will allow for more than enough social distancing. The class size will be capped at 20 children. We will teach the scheduled Godly Play lesson which will include an object lesson, bible story and craft. No food will be served or allowed so that masks can remain on at all times. All ages will remain together. We will not have break-out rooms.
Grown-ups, we ask that your child arrive with a mask on, be free of a fever, and no runny noses. If you or someone in your household does contract COVID, we ask that you notify the office and then refrain from sending your children to Sunday School for two weeks. If your child contracts COVID we ask you to contact the office and then refrain from Sunday School for two weeks PLUS return with a COVID negative test results. We greatly appreciate your support in helping us to keep everyone healthy!
We can’t wait to see you in-person!

North Scottsdale United Methodist church is offering Virtual Sunday School throughout the pandemic. Weekly, we will send our families the link to the lesson. Each link will offer your children a video of the scripture story and creative expressions to accompany the lesson. If you would like to check out a different lesson, we have nearly four dozen lessons uploaded for your convenience.
