What We Do

Classes For Children

 

Children’s classes are provided during the 9:30  a.m. service.  The goal of these classes is to help children connect their lives to God through Jesus Christ and grow in Christian  faith in a safe and nurturing environment by:

 

  • Developing their spiritual habits such as prayer, service to others, and regular attendance at Sunday School and worship

  • Teaching them scripture, Bible stories, music and the rituals of faith

  • Providing them with mission opportunities so that they may become faithful disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

 

Children start out in worship with their parents and then go to their classrooms following the Children’s Message.  There is Nursery available from the beginning of the service for our littlest folks.  

 

Youth In Grades 6-12

 

Youth gather on Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m., in the Youth Lounge for their own class. These classes provide a safe place for young people to think, question and discuss questions of faith as they grow 

 

Adult Challenge Class

 

On Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m., in the parlor, adults meet for study of various topics—social issues, Bible study, comparative religions, etc.  There is usually lively discussion.  All are welcome at any time.

 

Vacation Bible School

 

Each year, usually in June, we offer a week-long bible school  children from the  church and the Ypsilanti area.

 

Acolytes

 

Children who are 8 years old and older are invited to serve as acolytes—candle lighters at the beginning and end of every service. This opportunity is also open to youth and even adults.  

 

Lenten Fair

One Sunday, during Lent, the Children’s Ministry team presents a Lenten Fair following the 9:30 a.m. worship service.  There are Lenten and Easter themed activities for all age including egg dyeing, pretzel dipping, face painting and many others.  Lunch is available.  

 

Youth Group

 

Young people in grades 6-12  meet together for the purpose of building strong friendships, serving the church and the community, growing as Christian disciples and to have fun.  

 

They often plan and participate in week long mission trips.  They have worked in the U.P., downtown Detroit and Appalachia.  

 

They help with the Lenten Fair and  Vacation Bible School and they also serve a Souper Bowl Chili sale to benefit missions.  

 

Neighborhood Lenten bible Studies

 

During Lent, Bible studies are held in  the homes of church members.  These events provide an opportunity for spiritual growth and fellowship as we prepare ourselves for the celebration of Easter.

 

United Methodist Women

United Methodist Women is a group of women who join together to grow in faith and support missions .  They also support our congregation.  They have monthly programs and meet together in small groups called “circles”, for fellowship and friendship
