workshopofwonders full logoJoin us June 23-27 for our summer Vacation Bible School “Workshop of Wonders: Imagine & Build with God,” where children will learn about ordinary people in the Bible that did extraordinary things when they trusted God! Participants will hear amazing stories of what can happen when they use their heart, mind and imagination to participate in the creative life of God, the one who works wonders. The curriculum is based on the scripture of Psalm 77:14a, “You are the God who works wonders.” This week combines interactive Bible storytelling, crafts, science, recreation, music and even snacks for an experience that won’t soon be forgotten.

This year, we’ll once again offer two sessions – one from 9am – noon and another from 5-8pm. Registration is now open, so please complete this registration form and return it, along with the applicable registration fee (please see form to determine), to the Christian Education Office by May 2 to be guaranteed a t-shirt! If you’re interested in helping us make this ministry outreach event happen, please email Kim Mayes for more information and fill out the enclosed VBS adult volunteer application.


SPLASHOur SPLASH Children’s Ministry is currently seeking Sunday school teachers for the 2014 calendar year.  Eight week rotations per calendar year are available.  We believe following this schedule will ensure for those eight weeks our children have a consistent and familiar face greeting them each Sunday morning.  Additionally, with a commitment of only eight weeks our teachers can fulfill their call to teach while worshiping the balance of the year.  If you feel called to teach our young ones, please contact Judi at jnew@firstumc.org or by phone at 682-1912.  Please be in prayer for our Sunday school ministry as we plan and prepare for a brand new year!
