Ask anybody in our church where our challenges lie and they will tell you, “we need more children and young families”. I think this is a challenge for all churches. But one I think we can meet with God’s help. I will be calling a meeting of our children’s ministry team in the near future to make plans for the coming year.
I plan to offer Bible School this year as well as other activities for any children who are interested.
I covet your prayers and my suggestions to make this work for God and our church. Please feel free to come to me with any concerns, your help is needed and welcome.
Our committee members are:
Barbara Boyer, Nancy Frangos, Glen Grimes, Dianne Marshall, Madison Parks (youth), Sena Parks

HAPPENINGS WITH CHILDREN’S MINISTRY
We were blessed to have 15 children at our December Children’s Bible Study. We had such a good time studying God’s message of Christmas with the children.
This was the first time some of the children had attended and we feel sure that it will continue to grow and become an important part of our Children’s program.
We invite you to stop by the children’s room and check out what we have been doing. Be sure and notice the bulletin board outside the door.
Thanks for all your prayers and support.
Ruth Sizemore, Co-Chair Children’s Committee
A big THANK YOU! To all the volunteers from FUMC & Mt. Olivet UMC for donating your time, to the members who donated pudding, jello, and the Galax Fire Department for providing some water fun. This great event could not have happened without you!
