Your First Visit

Visiting us for the first time? No fear! Our friendly welcome team will show you where our Kids Check-In is when you arrive. We will meet your family, check your child into class, and answer any questions you may have. We can't wait to meet you! 



Volunteers at VB Kidz are trained to create an atmosphere where families can confidently leave their children while they are in service. Every volunteer is screened with a background check and participates in a Safe Sanctuary training. Don't worry parents - we've got this! 

What We Teach

Your kids will experience an age appropriate lesson that will teach them about God and His love for them. The teaching is interactive and utilizes multiple approaches for different learning styles. Our main goal here at Virginia Beach UMC is for kids to understand who Jesus is and how He can make a difference in their lives.  VB Kidz is fun, energetic, and centered on Jesus.
