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
Our first Children’s Ministry Program of 2017 was held on Sunday, March 12. We were blessed to have 6 children present, ranging in age from 4 to 11, and 6 adults assisting. Besides learning about the 12 year old Jesus in the temple, we had the opportunity to learn to pray for the ones responding to the fire alarm and those whom were being assisted.
The children enjoyed decorating foam crosses, which they took home to remind them of the season of Lent and in preparation for Easter. And last but not least, we ended with pizza, shamrock cookies, and drinks.
It was a wonderful time of fellowship. The children and adults interacted, as we learned more about Jesus and how to share his love.
“Let the little children come unto me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14 (NIV)
FUMC would like to thank The J. Daivd Vaughan Family Foundation for their generous donation to the Children’s, Youth, Kid Junction, and Health & Welfare Funds. Giving is not easy and this is especially true when there is a sacrifice involved. It is one way we have of demonstrating our faith and trust in God as we assist one another in building up His Kingdom on Earth. We are truly blessed by your generosity.

Ruth Sizemore would like to thank all those who helped make our church more beautiful for the Christmas season. From putting up the decorations and trimming the tree, to helping with the poinsettias, it was a real pleasure to work with all of you.
