Belin Memorial UMC Children’s Ministries

Our vision is to foster within each child a desire to grow personally in the grace and knowledge of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. Our heart’s desire is helping them develop their life choices on the word of God and that their lives will make an eternal imprint of God on this world.

SHINE Time includes Children’s Church, Sunday School, and the Belin Nursery. Our larger Children’s Ministry consists of annual events including Vacation Bible School, Christmas Pageant, Easter Egg Hunt, and more! Follow us on Facebook!

Youth Confirmation

Confirmation Class Schedule
Once youth enter sixth grade, they can participate in the youth ministry. Sixth grade youth can choose to be in our Confirmation program. This program focuses on our history and heritage as Methodists, what it means to be a Christian and a Methodist, and living as a disciple in our world.

If youth who complete the Confirmation program and choose to be confirmed in the Christian faith at Belin UMC they become members of the church on a special Confirmation Sunday. For more information contact Brandy Streett (843.357.5177 /
