Elk River United Methodist Church seeks to enrich the lives of children, youth and families in the church and surrounding communities. We value the use of age appropriate curriculum and Biblical concepts so that all people understand that they were created out of love and for a purpose.
Sunday School Sunday School will starts in worship at 10:00 am. After kid's time, students will be invited to Sunday School in the classrooms. On the first Sunday of each month, kids will stay in worship for the full time as we celebrate Holy Communion. The 2019-2020 school year will utilize Spark Activate Faith curriculum. Each classroom uses age-appropriate games, activities, and crafts to explore the Bible from Genesis to Paul's Letters.
