MONTHLY FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITY: JUMP

We are offering a monthly fellowship group for elementary aged children called JUMP (Junior United Methodist People)! JUMP meets on the third Sunday from 4-5 pm of every month and students in grades K-6 are invited. JUMP will include sharing time, game/play time, prayer, and some months a hands-on mission project. In order to make JUMP happen we need parent volunteers! If you are able to be on a rotating schedule to help with these monthly meetings, be in touch with Katie Glick.

Have a child who is planning to attend JUMP? Let us know by clicking HERE!

VARIOUS OPPORTUNITIES:

Our children are invited to participate in a variety of SHARE opportunities during our children's programming. Whether working in the BurkeGivesBack co-op, learning about food insecurity and justice issues, or helping with SHARE initiatives like Teddy Bear Brigade, we incorporate service into our children's programming so kids learn and grow in this area of their discipleship too!
