It’s not just about the game, it’s about the players! Soccer Shots is an engaging children’s soccer program with a focus on character development for children young children and it’s moving into the CFC at Myers on Tuesdays and Saturdays in January and February!  Our location will be one of the few in our area where a child does not have to be enrolled in a specific program in order to participate.

Feel free to work together with other families or volunteers to provide a meal (you may reach out to the family already signed up to help them!) Paper products and drinks are not needed. The children and youth groups greatly appreciate you volunteering!
Thank you so much for your support.

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 in 2024 as interest allows.
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
