Welcome to Anoka UMC!


We hope to encourage our children and families in their faith journeys by creating an atmosphere of acceptance and love through fellowship, education, worship, singing, and participating in outreach to our neighbors near and far.

As you review the list of programming, I hope you will discover where your skills and interests fit. The volunteers who are part of Anoka UMC find purpose and fulfillment sharing in our mission. Thank you for taking the time to learn about this vital ministry.
Follow our Kids and Families page on Facebook to see our Youth participating in events.
Dave Long is our Director of Family Ministries.

A Message from the Pastor

Welcome to the Family Ministry of the United Methodist Church of Anoka! Our church is a place where all people are welcome and all are encouraged and nurtured in the Christian faith. Your children will find many opportunities here – to learn the stories of God, to develop friendships, to sing in choirs, and to become disciples of Jesus Christ. You are invited to become an active part of our church in whatever way God might be leading you. All of us are children of God, and our lives are joyful when we experience God’s love day by day.

Grace and peace,
Pastor Rachael
