First Time Here?


Prepare to arrive about ten minutes before service where your child will be checked in according to their age group. Once your information is entered into the computer, you will be given a digital scan card to expedite checking in for the future.

You will also be given a corresponding sticker with a unique identification number to your child’s tag for pick up after service. No one else will be permitted to pick up your child without the sticker. If at any time you are needed, your child’s identification number will be displayed on LED screens on each side of the auditorium alerting you.

Infants to Pre-K

Please check in your infant or pre-schooler at the check in area immediately to the right of the main entrance.

Kindergarten to 5th Grade

Please go to the left after passing through the main entrance and go down to the end of the hall to reach the children’s wing.

Kids N.O.W.

Kids Night of Worship events help teach the children at SHUMC how to worship in different ways. For more info, see Sorelyss McGinty.

For more information like what to bring as well as a deeper look at our curriculum.



Both of our childrens’ wings feature electronic check-in and hall security to ensure your kids are safe and secure throughout their entire experience.  Additionally, SHUMC is staffed with a trained security team and features video surveillance for added protection. Each volunteer is required to submit to a thorough background check as well before serving.

With your kids having a great time of their own, you can enjoy one of our services without any distractions or worries.
