Children & Youth

Sunday School

Each Sunday morning, our Sunday School community is a vital part of the life of our church.  Here both new and more experienced believers study God’s Word together and form little “faith communities” that have a lasting impact on their lives.  Our classes offer activities that include discussions, presentations, crafts and multimedia approaches to understand Jesus’ love and teachings.

Children’s Ministry Special Events

Reservoir hosts many special events throughout the year, featuring fun and friendship for our church families.  Past activities include Souper Bowl Sunday and Cupcake Wars. 

Children’s Moments

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Reservoir UMC has a time with young disciples in the service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that is suited to their age and learning styles.


A nursery is available for children under the age of 5 during Sunday School and morning worship. They are also welcome in the sanctuary. 

Confirmation Class

Confirmation class is a time to prepare young people in the eighth grade or above to take on for themselves the vows made on their behalf at baptism. We use an exciting interactive curriculum taught by a team of adults. If your teenager would like to be confirmed, please contact the Pastor or Church Office
