A Note From the Staff

We offer a comprehensive program of education, worship, outreach, and fellowship for children. Our mission is to grow and nurture children into young disciples, teaching them about God's love while providing a positive, affirming place for them to laugh and learn! If you have any questions about our Children's Sunday School classes, our nursery, or the Oak Hill UMC Children's Ministry, please contact Jenny Holm, Director of Children's Ministries, or call (512) 288-3836 ext. 232.

Children are an integral part of the worshiping congregation at Oak Hill UMC. Children are encouraged to worship with their families. Each worship service includes a special “Children’s Time” and children are always welcome at the Lord’s Table to receive Holy Communion.

Meet our Nursery Workers

Nicole Roesler

This is my third year working in child care, and I love it! I am blessed enough to work with Ms. Rita in the Pre-K class and Ms. Jenny as Assistant Director of Children’s Ministries, and to continue working in the infant and toddler nurseries. It is an absolute joy and a privilege watching all of our little ones grow!

Samantha Sheffield

In order to get my baby fix without having a child of my own, I started working in the Oak Hill UMC nursery. Outside of working with the beautiful kiddos of Oak Hill, I spend my weekdays serving full-time as an AmeriCorps volunteer. I walked the stage in August 2016 at Texas State University with a degree in public relations and hope to go into a life of public service through either policy or nonprofit work. The Oak Hill UMC nursery has been a fantastic step in my faith and life journey. I am grateful to work here with the little ones!

Avery Johnson

My name is Avery Johnson and I am a senior at the McCallum Fine Arts Academy for Visual Arts. I've been working at Oak Hill UMC since September 2017 and absolutely love it! I enjoy drawing and marking art in my free time, and I love seeing lots of kiddos through work and babysitting. Next year in college I will major in advertising and possibly continue my path of becoming an American Sign Language interpreter. I love getting to know your kids and watching them grow!

Madi Bickham

Hi! My name is Madi Bickham. I’ve been a member of Oak Hill UMC my entire life and have volunteered/worked for Children’s Ministries since I was in 6th grade. In May 2018, I’ll graduate from Texas State with a bachelor’s in social work. Upon graduation, I plan on working toward my master’s degree and later getting a job in medical social work. I love working with kids, and working in the nursery is the perfect way to give back to the church that has given me so much in my life!

Children's Education Building

Our nursery and all of our classes for children are held in the Children’s Education Building, which is located at the front part of the campus. The Children's Education Building is marked in red on this OHUMC campus map.
