Children’s Ministry

Children’s Ministry is thriving at Myers Memorial UMC!  You are invited to contact Connie Elzey, Director of Christian Education, to be added to any children’s mailings or to join our private Facebook group for children and families.  We are committed to providing faith formation opportunities for our children through out this pandemic.  Sunday School teachers are recording lessons and curriculum is being made available to those who wish to engage in lessons at home with supplemental videos from teachers and leaders. 

March Children’s Sunday School and Music Lesson Packets will be ready for pick up on Sunday, March 7 in the parking lot at 11a during our Communion Service. Sunday School videos will be shared each week on our Children’s Facebook page and thru emails. Many thanks to Jerri Lynn and Gary Boggess, Jaclyn Tant, Justine Snyder, Haley and Tony Sane and Melinda Brown for preparing our Sunday School and Music Lessons in March.

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
