Family & Children's Ministries

Moses: Our current rotation, which began on April 8th, is the story of Moses. All children ages preschool through 6th grade are invited to come downstairs after the Children’s Time during the 9AM worship service to experience different workshops including music & games, science, legos and art. We will end our rotation with Family Worship on May 13th! Our last day of rotational Sunday School will be May 20th. We will take a break from Sunday School on Memorial weekend (May 27th) and then our Cinema Summer Sunday School begins on June 3rd (more info below)!

Cinema Summer Sunday School & LEGO Sundays for children entering Kindergarten – 4th Grade!! Coming soon to a Sunday School near you!! Sunday School will resume on June 3rd and be offered through the summer. In June & July, the children will enjoy popcorn and short clips of fun movies that help introduce a Bible story and then participate in activities and discussion that reinforce the clip’s message and gets them talking, laughing and thinking together! LEGO Sundays will return in August!! During this time, the children will hear a Bible story out of the Spark Bible and then make LEGO creations relating to the story. If you are interested in being a leader or assistant one Sunday during the summer, please contact Emily Shook, Director of Family & Children’s Ministries, eshook@peoplesumc.org.

Mark your calendars:

*Children’s Ministry Appreciation Sunday! May 13th during the 9AM or 10:30 service. If you have served in Children’s Ministry this school year, you are invited to be recognized for your important service.

*Confirmation Sunday - May 20th - Students will lead both services and be confirmed at the 10:30 service.

*High School Graduate Recognition Sunday - June 3rd - Brunch for graduates & their families and then recognition during 10:30 service. (Official invites will be sent in early May.)

Have you ever considered serving in Children's Ministry but didn't think you had the time to commit to teaching every week? Rotational Sunday School may be what you're looking for! As a workshop leader, you choose the activities in an area that you are interested in (art, music, cooking, games, science or drama). Then, you teach the same lesson 3 times to 3 different groups. If you are interested in learning more about leading a workshop, we would love to have you come down this month and check out the workshops. Please contact Emily Shook, Director of Family & Children's Ministries, eshook@peoplesumc.org.
