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.
Sunday School
Sunday school for all ages meets at 9:30am in the HolyWord room from September to May (except for holiday weekends.) Following their get together time they will split off into their age groups. Communion Sundays (usually the first Sunday of the month) are a special family worship time. The first three front pews are reserved if any children and youth want to sit together and then take communion. This is a great Sunday to volunteer to serve in worship as scripture readers, call to worship leaders, acolyte or sing a song and play an instrument!

All teachers go through training that includes safe sanctuaries and background checks. Dave Long will be happy to help your children get settled in a class.

For parents of teenagers, 8th & 9th Grade Confirmation meets Wednesday evenings:

Youth Hangout 6:00-6:30pm Middle School and Senior High Confirmation Class 6:30-8:15pm After Confirmation Hangout 8:15-9:00pm All grades 6-12 meet at 9:30am for Sunday school. (September-May)

Senior High Hangout meets every 1st & Third Thursday from 6:15 – 9:00 pm for Senior High Youth

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
