All children are invited to bring their favorite adult! Pre-registrations are required. Adults can bring lawn chairs and social distance to connect with others during this outside social distancing activity time with our children. But, you may not get to sit too long, because we may need to help during our social distancing activities!

Hand Sanitizer will be provided.

Please read the guidelines for outdoor gatherings at MMUMC and return the questionnaire. Please bring your own drink. All gatherings are an hour or less and restroom visits are discouraged unless there is an emergency. We hope this is an opportunity for families and children to begin to reconnect in person at MMUMC. If you are uncomfortable with gathering, we understand! We hope you will pre-register asap.


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 rising 5th through 8th 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.

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. 
Created by God is offered every other year and will be offered again in 2021 unless the need is great to offer it before then.  If you are interested, please contact Connie Elzey.
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. Questions? Contact Connie Elzey, 704-864-3222
