Children’s Sunday School

We are excited about Sunday School this fall!  Thank you to our leaders for their dedication  each week. We hope to see attendance continue to increase as we maintain safe practices for helping children grow as disciples.  Children (preschool-4th graders) will continue to gather in the CFC at 10a and will be picked up in the CFC at 10:40a.

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

Camp Tekoa Church Retreat
