Infant – 3 year olds

Myers Memorial has one of the most loving nurseries in the area.  A safe and fun place to learn, the nursery is more than a space for babysitting.  The nursery is open every Wednesday night so that parents and grandparents are able to attend studies and worship.

In}{Between

We recognize there are times when we’re just in between: too old for some things, not old enough for others. Or maybe you know some of the older kids yet you’re too young or visa versa Therefore, we’ve created a small group opportunity for the 3rd through 7th graders under the leadership of Tresca McSwain. Those older children and younger youth who feel they’re… well… In}{Between are invited to join this group as they meet through out the year for events created just for them.
Dates to be announced!

Created By God

One of the conversations we don’t want to have is the one we really need to have and that’s the awkward conversation about how we are created ~ male and female. 

We at Myers Memorial UMC want to help you have that conversation with your child and lay the ground work for any future conversation that seems awkward and embarrassing.  We invite the parents of 4th & 5th graders to clear the calendar and please save the date of Saturday, June 9.  We ask that you please commit to the entire day from 9a to 2p as each session builds on another.

We are created by God and God is still at work helping us become the person we were created to be.  It’s not always an easy process but with accurate information and a safe environment to learn and question, growing up can be a little bit easier.
