Children's Ministries

Loving parents want the best for their children. Providing opportunities for spiritual development is perhaps the greatest gift you can offer a child. Even in Jesus' time on earth, parents were bringing their children to him so that he might bless them. Jesus not only encouraged the children to come, but held them up as an example for adults to follow.

So as you help your child grow in faith, you may find your own spirit touched as well. Sunday school for all ages is held at 9:30 am. Vacation Bible School is offered in the summer. Other events and activities for children are scheduled throughout the year. Helping your children understand the love of God will be a blessing for them throughout their lifetimes - and beyond.   

Methodist Youth Fellowship (MYF)

What is MYF?

MYF is a gathering of our youth where we learn about Christ, how to be more Christ like, How to use the scripture in our daily lives, and participate in fellowship.   

Who is MYF?

  Students in grades 3 - 12 are broken down into three groups:  Grades 3 - 5, grades 6 - 8, and grades 9 - 12. Let us call them Juniors, Middle School and High School. 

When is MYF?

Junior MYF meets on the first Sunday of the month with the other two groups. We meet from 4 - 6 pm, share a meal, learn a lesson, play a game, socialize as Christians. This time allows for the juniors to taste a bit of what is to come and allows our older groups a chance to be mentors.  The balance of the Sundays are as follows: 3 - 5 pm middle school and 4 - 6 pm high school. This schedule will change from time to time depending on activities going on that week.
