Children’s Ministries

God’s Gang, a ministry of the Knightstown UMC meets during the school year on Mondays right after school and ends at 4:15 pm. All area children in Kindergarten through 5th grade are welcome.

God’s Gang follows the Charles A. Beard School Corporation calendar and will meet each Monday that school is in session. Children are allowed to ride the bus and will be dropped at the south entrance located on Jackson Street. Knightstown Elementary children will ride bus #22 and Knightstown Intermediate children will ride bus #25. A parent permission note needs to be written and filed with the school in order for your child to attend God’s Gang. There is no fee for your child to attend this weekly program.

The mission of God’s Gang is to show and teach God’s love to each child. This is done through snacks (of course), song, scripture, and service projects. Children will also work together to create a Veteran’s program, Christmas program, and a Spring program that parents and friends are invited to attend.

God’s Gang at KUMC has been ministering to children for over 35 years. We are excited to welcome back all those returning children and invite anyone that is new to come and enjoy the activities and fellowship provided. God’s Gang is fun!


Vacation Bible School



VBS is a summer program offered by Knightstown UMC which incorporates themed activities that entertain kids with the chance to learn about God and his Son, Jesus Christ. Vacation Bible School is an easy way to get kids involved in church while giving you the opportunity to meet the people within our church as well. Church membership is not required to participate and it’s a laid back atmosphere.

VBS takes place over four/five weekdays in the summer. Children attend around 2 hours each day.

Vacation Bible School teachers are church staff as well as church members volunteering their time. Many of the church members helping out with VBS are parents too.

Check back with us for the 2022 dates for VBS. We hope to see your children there!
