“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” — Mark 10:14

Children have a special place in the life of our congregation at Tigard United Methodist Church and are welcome in worship.

We want children to feel like they belong in every aspect of church life, including worship. We know that children (and most adults) are never perfectly still or quiet and that’s okay! The sounds of children in worship indicate that this congregation is alive and thriving!

  • A clean, well maintained, fully staffed nursery (for kids 5 and younger) is available during worship and most activities
  • Activity packs and “worship buddies” are available in the church lobby.
  • A “pray ground” is available during our Water’s Edge worship for kids who want to color and/or do other quiet activities.
  • Children in kindergarten through 12th grade can enjoy an imaginative and interactive classes at Bridges Learning Hour
  • Families can experience a number of intergenerational events where we learn together how to experience and express our faith in a variety of ways.

  • What they’re saying…

    I spent about 2 years enjoying Jubilatte’s warm inviting atmosphere. I’d drink coffee while my kids played in the play area. It was in Jubilatte that I met and began to form relationships with church members and also Pastor Jeremy. When we decided to start attending Sunday worship, it was clear to me what an impact Jubilatte had on my family’s life. Tigard UMC is where we belong. I’m not sure if we would have discovered that if it wasn’t for Jubilatte.
