Aldersgate United Methodist Church is now Dayspring Arcadia. Join us Sundays at 11am for services!

The season of lent in Children’s Ministry has been a busy one as we get ready to celebrate the mystery of Easter.  We will be transitioning back to our normal Sunday school format in April with three classes broken up by grade level at both the 9:00 and 10:30 services. On Easter Sunday, during Sunday school we look forward to bringing our Dayspring Easter Egg Hunt back for our children sponsored by the BeTween ministry.

Vacation Bible School is back, running June 13-16 from 9am to noon.  Our program this year is Monumental where we will explore the monumental size of God’s love in the beauty of the desert habitat of Monument Valley!  The program is for children 3 years old (by 1/1/22) to 6th grade.  The cost is $35 for the first child and $25 for siblings and includes daily snacks, all program supplies, activities and a music CD or digital download for each family.  Registration is open to Dayspring families and returning campers until April 4 and will open to the public on April 5.  Space is limited so register today. We are also looking for volunteers to help in all stations and to work with small groups of students throughout their activities. Register your child and/or sign up to volunteer at or email

Later in April, we are looking forward to a special Earth Day Sunday school event on 4/24 to celebrate our Earth and the role our children can play in investing in the future of our planet.
