UBC Children's Ministry

In the Bible Jesus says, “Let the little children come to me; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” Our hope is that the children who come to UBC will experience Jesus’ love, learn scripture and its meaning to their lives, and discover their deep value in God’s eyes. We are committed to partnering with parents in nurturing the spiritual formation of children.


This Fall features the launch of SUNDAY NIGHT LIVE! Every Sunday night, we will gather in Heaver Hall at 5:55 p.m. for dinner and games.  We will then split off into age appropriate small groups.  It is always a blast! Contact John or Katie for more information.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School is a wonderful opportunity every summer for children (ages 3 through completed 5th grade) to discover the love of Jesus while they enjoy games, arts and crafts, music, science and chapel time. For over a decade, our annual VBS has been a team effort between the Churches of Charles (Cathedral Church of the Incarnation, First English Lutheran Church, Church of Saints Philip and James, Second Presbyterian Church, and UBC) and generally takes place the last week of July. Please check out our VBS page for registration and more information.

Nursery and Preschool

On Sundays, infants and crawlers are lovingly cared for in our Blue Room where they hear stories and songs about Jesus. Walkers through 2 year-olds stay in our Purple Room where they sing, hear stories about Jesus, and experience guided play.
Our 3-5 year-olds have a more structured preschool-type experience.

Children's Church

Children up to Grade 4 are invited to the Children's Area during the doxology for the remainder of the Foundation Worship service. We will pray together, hear an age-appropriate lesson, play games, and have a snack.
