Welcome! We’re glad you’re here. Discovery at Saint Paul, our children’s ministry, is a combination of music, meditation, Bible study, discussion, and activities to help children as they walk along their faith journey. Discovery welcomes all children ages 4 years through 5th grade!

Weekly Discovery Opportunities

Discovery Sunday School takes place after Sunday morning Worship from 11:00-11:45 a.m. in the 2nd-floor classrooms.

Wednesday night programming offers activities for all ages. The children are invited to participate In the all-church fellowship meal (5:00-6:00 p.m.) and then join us for Wednesday night Discovery (6:00-6:45 p.m.). Choir practice also takes place on Wednesday evenings (7:00-9:00 p.m.).

Childcare is available during all weekly events.


Discovery hosted a Christmas Art Workshop at the beginning of the Advent season. Guest artist, Karey Koehn, led us step-by-step through a Christmas painting. At the end, each child had a canvas to take home and display for the holidays. 

Saint Paul hosted its annual Trunk-or-Treat event to provide a fun and safe alternative to traditional door to door trick-or-treating. There were about 20 decorated cars with candy, games, and activities. Lincoln families were invited to walk through the garage and stay for a kid-friendly Halloween movie! Nearly 500 children attended this event. 

We had a fantastic week at Vacation Bible School in June! We had so much fun singing, dancing, learning, laughing, crafting, playing, eating, and enjoying our time together. The children heard 5 important parables from Jesus and discussed how they are relevant today

We discovered what’s needed in a garden.

Once a week there were science experiments, crafts, stories & scripture, snacks and games in the church gym and a special video presentation that took place in a classroom inside Saint Paul UMC.
