New Zoomy Room

A gathering room for kids to have supervised playtime with friends on Zoom. It is called Zoomy Room! Every weekday is a themed playtime, with Jesus and fun as our focus! There will be games, scavenger hunts, sing-alongs and lots of free time for the kids to talk to friends and socialize. All this fun while still being monitored by two credentialed for safe sanctuary adults. Hosted by Ms. Jen and her crew! For privacy of children, contact Jennifer at  for the password.

At Shalimar UMC, our vision is to nurture children to know and trust Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. We strive to provide an atmosphere of love so that children will seek the church as a sanctuary from adversities for the rest of their lives. We seek to instill in children the responsibility to use their time and talents to share God’s love and to teach them the importance in meeting others needs both in their community and the world around them.

Visit our Places to Serve to see if we have any current needs in the children's department.

Birth through 11 Years Old | Safe, Clean, and Loving Place for Children

NURSERY MINISTRY

On Sunday mornings and during most other church functions, we offer nursery care to all families with young children. For children from newborn through age 11, we provide a safe, clean, and loving place for children during church activities. The nursery is located in the Family Life Center on the first floor.

The nursery is staffed by employees of our Church Nursery Staff and church volunteers. All workers and volunteers have been carefully screened and trained. An effort is made to keep the same staff members in each room so that your child will recognize the same reassuring faces each week.

We maintain all Florida State Child Care Standards, including the child/staff ratio regarding room size and equipping those rooms with age appropriate toys and games. We honor the Safe Sanctuary policy: at least two workers in each nursery room at all times. Our entire nursery staff is trained in infant/child CPR and first aid.

Our nursery rooms are staffed and ready for little ones 15 minutes prior to programs and worship services. Pick up is encouraged no later than 15 minutes after programs and worship services.

4th and 5th Graders

The Bridge is our group for 4th and fifth graders. This group is designed to bridge the gap of those students who feel they are too old for children's  programs yet or too young for our youth group. They are learning good manners, good choices, and good behaviors through service and life to live discipleship. At the end of the year, this amazing group of young people will continue on through two confirmations. To encourage this group we have special events for fun and services. To become a participant parents must agree to have their students attend children's church, Sunday school, or Wednesday night kids club . During each of these programs we have qualified mentors and adult disciple makers that walk along side the young people through this journey over the bridge.
