Step back in time for this Holy Land Adventure week as we travel to Babylon without even leaving Dripping Springs, exploring Daniel’s adventures as a captive in a foreign land. Each day, you can become part of history as you see, hear, touch, and even taste what it was like to live in Babylon! You’ll experience the Bible-times Marketplace shops, visit Daniel, take part in teamwork-building games, sing and dance to lively Bible songs, join in hands-on mission helping both kids here and across the world, and sample tasty tidbits as you discover more about Daniel’s adventures in Babylon. These experiences make God’s Word come alive with new meaning for all who participate! Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings.

In addition to VBS this year, we’ll also be offering several summer camps! Registration for DSUMC’s summer Create Camps is now open! You can use the links below to register and please share! These summer enrichment camps are open to any children in the Dripping Springs community 3 yrs old-entering 4th gr (by September 1st).

NURSERY (0-4yrs)
The Nursery is available for many activities, including all church services, Wednesday night Bible Studies/classes, and other activities/classes throughout the week. We generally have a mix of free play and guided play in the nursery, free play on the playground and usually a snack time, if available.
The mission of our nursery is to prepare children to become disciples of Jesus Christ through nurturing care from trusted, Christian adults, socialization with fellow children of God, and instruction in our Sunday School classes.
We fully encourage family worship. However, if your child is not quite ready for church worship, they are welcome in the nursery. A good way to begin the integration of family worship is to start by having them attend the songs and children’s time. Then, bring them into the nursery. This will get them used to church time and the church/worship atmosphere.
PLEASE NOTE: All scheduled events, groups, meetings, Bible Studies, etc… needing child care need to be arranged at least TWO WEEKS in advance to ensure enough child care is provided. Click HERE for a Child Care reservation request form. For questions or comments, email Cheri Heldstab.
Junior Bible Quiz (JBQ)
Junior Bible Quiz offers a fun and exciting way to motivate children to understand the all-important truths in God’s Word. Children ages 4 through 6th grade are invited to participate.
As a part of the Children’s ministry here at DSUMC, Pathways School has been leading children into discipleship since 1985 through our preschool and Kindergarten. Children of all faiths are welcome. We invite anyone who would like to take a tour and see the teachers and children in action.
