Welcome to the R.O.C.K

The R.O.C.K. Children’s Ministry of Springfield United Methodist Church

Our VISION: Leading Children to Follow Christ

Our MISSION: The R.O.C.K. Children’s Ministry endeavors to

• REACH - through church programs and events

• OUT - to the church, community and beyond


• CHRIST’S – presenting the gospel message of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord

• KIDS – to children on their level, in a fun, nurturing and safe environment.

At Springfield United Methodist Church (SUMC), we offer opportunities throughout the year for children and families to grow in love, faith and Christian witness. We strive to provide a safe, secure and nurturing environment for all of our children. To help ensure this, we require all staff and volunteers working with children and youth to follow the SUMC "Safe Sanctuaries Policy" and undergo periodic background checks. All staff are required to be certified in First Aid and CPR.
