“Train children in the right way, and when old,

they will not stray.”

Proverbs 22:6

Cabot United Methodist Church is committed to providing quality Christian Education for our many children. It is important that children know about God’s love and grace at an early age. The mission of the Children’s department at Cabot United Methodist Church is to help the children grow in their walk with Jesus Christ and to nurture them toward discipleship. We strive to guide them along on their faith journey through our many children’s ministries, and welcome those who share this fundamental idea to join us in this ministry.  Below are links to more information about our long-term ministries as well as information on various special events held throughout the year. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information on how to become involved in guiding our children’s walk with Jesus!
