The beginning of the year can be an exciting time. It is a time when we can reflect and be grateful for things in the past and look forward to the future! We have so many blessings to be grateful for at First United Methodist and our Sunday School Program is one of them! I would like to thank all of our wonderful Sunday School teachers, assistants and other helpers who have volunteered this past year! We are truly blessed to have you teach and work with our children. Our Sunbeam (PreK), Star (Gr. K-2), and Seeker (Gr. 3-5) classes are growing and we look forward to adding more classes in the future.

This January we will be starting our Pioneer Club on Wednesday nights from 6:00-7:00 p.m. for all children grades K-5. This is an exciting Christian program that engages children in learning life skills, as well as Biblical truths. We will also be having regular Dinner- Award Ceremonies where parents and families will be invited to join us as we celebrate the children’s accomplishments. The children will be earning badges which will be attached to sashes similar to what is done in the Scouting programs. Pioneer Club is a wonderful program and we are excited to launch it at First Church.

Starting in January, we are thrilled to welcome the children back into our Sanctuary for the beginning of Worship Service again!!! Children will sit with their families until they are excused to go to Sunday School. Of course, we are asking that all children still be masked as well as staff. All other adults are encouraged to wear masks during this time as well.

There are so many exciting things to look forward to in this new year at First United Methodist! God is truly gracious!

Parents, we will email you if we decide to cancel activities or Sunday School on any given week. Please check your emails to stay current with the status of the programs. While we might have to temporarily cancel some events in January due to Covid levels, my hope and prayers will be that this will just be for a short time. We have much to look forward to in the future!

God Bless!
