Children

Your child's faith development is important to us here at Champlin UMC. This is why we have made it a focus for your child to feel they are a part of our community as well. We provide a Sunday school option for all families to help build their child's faith. We also encourage children to sit in on worship for the first 15 minutes, up to the children's time with the pastor, so that families can worship together before going off to kids care. We also provide nursery care for our youngest of friends!

Connect time

After the service we really want to get to know you, your family, and anything that may be on your heart, both good and bad. We provide a connect time where we take the time to meet and greet, new comers, members, and friends of the church alike. We believe in being connected with one another. You are always welcome to come and be as social or anti-social as you feel comfortable with. Our connect time is also shared over treats and coffee so we hope you choose to stick around!

Our Guiding Principles

Connected with God's Spirit through prayer, we reflect these beliefs and values in our guiding principles and choose to:

  • Create a community for all people using inclusive language as a means to celebrate the contributions of all.

  • Hold strong to our United Methodist roots of social justice and stand, as Jesus does, with the outcast and oppressed. 

  • Pursue peace so that all may have the spiritual, emotional, and intellectual wholeness that God intends.

  • Use language that keeps God's possibilities limitless.

  • Encourage all ages to be critical thinkers who feel safe asking questions in church.

  • Follow the teachings of Jesus, while also affirming the legitimacy of others' pathways to God. We embrace all humanity’s search for meaning in life. 

  • Take the Bible seriously, but not literally.  We also find inspiration in studying and listening for God’s word in other forms of spiritual expression.

  • Strive to protect and restore all of God’s creation in order to maintain the integrity of the earth.

  • Work together with others who share our goal for a healthy and safe community for everyone.
