Children and Families Ministries

Family & Children’s Ministries:

NO Sunday School on September 2nd - please enjoy worshipping with your family! The children’s worship bags will be available and the nursery will be open for children 5 and younger.

Rotational Sunday School kicks off on September 9th!  Our first Bible story will be focused on Thomas and learning about prayer. We are in the process of recruiting leaders to teach workshops including art, music, video, cooking, games & science and teen Shepherds to move with the same group each week to the different workshops. Teens can use their shepherd time as high school service hours. Please contact Emily Shook, Director of Family & Children’s Ministries, eshook@peoplesumc.org if you are interested in learning more about serving in this area as a leader or a Shepherd.

Also, on September 9th - Blessing of the Backpacks ~ during 9AM service: All children are invited to bring their backpacks to church to receive a special blessing during worship for the upcoming school year. Teachers & other school personnel are also invited to bring their “backpacks” (whatever you carry to and from school).

Wheels & Squeals Outreach Event - Saturday, September 29th 2-4PM: The Family & Children’s Team is excited for our upcoming community outreach event! Wheels & Squeals is an ALL wheel free family event. Community members will check in at the church, head over to the bike loop across the street and stop at fun stations collecting punches on their punch card. Then, they will return to the lower parking lot at People’s for a prize bag and free food. This is an opportunity for us to show the love of Jesus through hospitality. We are partnering with the Oregon Area Wellness Coalition to encourage families to be fit together. (Raindate October 6th, same time).

Bible Sunday Coming Soon - October 14th! The Family & Children's Ministry Team is very excited to celebrate a special milestone in our children's faith journey by receiving their very own Bible. We will celebrate Bible Sunday on 10/14/18 during the 9AM worship service with a special blessing. All current 3rd graders and preschoolers new to Sunday School will receive a Bible. If you are new to People’s Church and would like your child (ages preschool to 6th grade) to receive a Bible, please email Emily Shook (eshook@peoplesumc.org). Also, please let Emily know if you would like your child to be included on Bible Sunday.
