Children’s Sunday School

Connie Elzey, Director of Christian Education, dce@myersmemorialumc.com, 704-864-3222

We’re digging into the Bible in One Year too!  We’re on a whirlwind journey from Genesis to Revelation beginning March 13th! Children will discover that they’re a lot like people God has always loved and worked through while building a relationship with God and friends.

Children (preschool to 4th grades) gather each Sunday in the CFC at 10 for a brief time of music and movement before heading to their age level classes with some of the most amazing teachers! Children return to the CFC for pick up at 10:40a.

 

Infants-Toddlers (0-36 months) Room E118

Children (4yrs-4th grades) will gather in the CFC for music and fellowship at 10a and will return to the CFC for pick up at 10:40a. Children’s Classes, 4 years through 4th grades, will be on the 3rd floor of the Education Building.

  • 4yrs-1st graders will meet with Haley Sane, Judy Thiele, and April Proctor.
  • 2nd-4th grades will meet with Gary & Jerrilynn Boggess, Jaclyn Tant, and Justine Synder.

InBetween (5th & 6th Grades) will meet on the 1st Floor in room E12, located off the Youth Lounge with Marty & Kelly Brown. Contact Tresca McSwain (thmcswain@gmail.com).

 

Children’s Lenten Fair

Children (preschool – 4th grades) are invited to gather in the CFC for a fun exploration of the season of Lent.  From pretzels and ashes to palm branches and donkeys, we’ll learn how this all helps us understand God’s great love for us in Jesus!

 

The butterfly is a mesmerizing creation that captures the beauty of God’s creative power to transform even the tiniest creatures. You are invited see for your own eyes this transformative power through purchasing caterpillars and raising them to butterflies for an Easter morning release! Don’t worry! It’s simple and plenty of instructions will be provided!

Orders are Due to the Church Office by Sunday, March 13.

Starter Bundle: $14 each
includes 1 Small Cage and 2 Caterpillars
Additional Caterpillars: $2 each
Additional Small Cage: $12 each (8” tall, collapsible for storage and holds up to 4 butterflies
 
You may also send in your order with payment via mail or dropping it by the church. Please remember to include a phone or email address where we can contact you when the caterpillars arrive.
 
These are live animals and we cannot guarantee that each one will become a butterfly. It is advised to purchase more than you may need. Caterpillars will arrive to the church around late March. You will be notified when they are ready for pick up and your prompt response to pick up is necessary so that they are in the proper stage for an Easter release (April 17) no matter where you are to celebrate the Risen Savior in 2022.

Created By God ~ March 26

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 in 2022 on March 26 from 1p to 5p for 4th, 5th and 6th graders.  If you are interested, please contact Tresca McSwain
 
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
