Children’s Ministries

Children are a very important part of our congregation. Our goal is to help children from infancy through 5th grade with their spiritual development and well being. Because they are so important we have a Child Protection First Policy in place and require a background check on all volunteer and paid staff who work with our children.

Upcoming Events for Kids!

As we have all heard, Hoover City Schools will be requiring children and teachers to wear masks during all indoor school activities from now until September 21st. Based on this decision, consultation with other local churches, review of current CDC recommendations and guidelines related to Covid-19, and with the understanding that children are the only group remaining that do not have access to the Covid-19 vaccine, we have decided upon the following Covid-19 policy for the Children’s Ministry at Bluff Park UMC from Sunday, August 15th through Sunday, September 19th:

1) Masks will be required at all indoor children’s ministry events/ministries for both children and adult volunteers.
2) We will continue to check the temperature of each child and adult volunteer upon arrival at our ministries. If a child or adult volunteer’s temperature is above 100, they will be sent home.

We will reevaluate this policy near the end of this time, but we highly anticipate following the lead of the Hoover City School System.

Please know that we care deeply for both the physical and spiritual well-being of each and every child in our church and our community, and we ask that you would continue to pray for the Children’s Ministry at BPUMC as we begin a new school year. If you have any questions or concerns about this new Covid-19 policy, please contact me at sdavidson@bpumc.org.
