The Vision of Davidson UMC Children's Ministry is to guide children in believing, accepting, and sharing the love and wonder of Jesus.
Our Sunday School classes help build relationships with children as they learn that God and the people of their church love them, that God did and continues to do amazing things, and that they can learn to apply God's message to their daily life.
