This summer along with a super week of VBS, our children’s ministry will offer three summer camps.  Each camp will have a day for kids entering kindergarten through third grade and a day for kids going into grades 4 through 6.

SOCCER CAMP:  Our first camp will be a soccer camp. Sign your kids up for a fun day burning energy and learning awesome soccer moves from some of    Marion’s best players (MHS soccer team).  Tuesday, June 28, will be for kids K-3 and Thursday, June 30, for kids grades 4-6. 

SPANISH CAMP:  Each camper will need to bring a sack lunch; water and snacks will be provided. Spanish camp is set for July 12 and 14. Kids will not learn to speak Spanish, but fun traditions, games, and even enjoy a yummy Spanish lunch.  K-3, will attend Tuesday July 12, and grades 4-6 will attend Thursday, the July 14.

COOKING CAMP:  Some of MUMC’s finest chefs will be on hand to help the kids make some tasty treats (and maybe share a secret or two). This camp will be Tuesday, July 19, for grades K-3 and Thursday, July 21 for grades 4-6.

The cost for each camp if $10.00 per child.  Any child registering for all three camps will pay a total of $25.00 per child.  You can register by  picking up a form in the Narthex or use the attached form to either print or scan the QR code and complete online  Sign-up for summer camp registration here .
Sunday Mornings
The nursery is available for children birth to age 2 during Sunday School and Worship. The nursery is equipped with a changing table, high chairs, a crib, swings, and plenty of toys.
Sunday School
Sunday School begins at 9:45 every Sunday morning. Children are split into classrooms based on their age starting with age 2 and going up to 6th grade. Each class studies The Gospel Project curriculum to learn about Jesus through the Scriptures.
Children’s Church
Before the sermon, during the 10:45 Worship Service, the children (starting with age 2 – kindergarten) go up to the altar for a Children’s Sermon. Children then dismiss to the Children’s Area for Children’s Church. Parents pick their children up after the Service.  Please be sure to sign up to help with Children’s Church at this link.
Blessing of the Backpacks
We will have our Blessing of the Backpacks each year just before the beginning of school.  
Joyful Noise
The last Sunday of each month is Joyful Noise Sunday. During the Children’s Sermon, the children walk around to the congregation collecting change. The change goes toward feeding students through the Backpack Program at Marion School District.
Wednesday Afternoons
Worship With Friends

Our Worship With Friends has kicked off!  Please insure your child is registered the Sunday before they plan to attend.  This is a paid-for, after-school program that provides rotations of music, devotional Bible lessons, crafts, recreation, and snacks! This year parents will have to help provide transportation to students, and students from Herbert Carter Global Elementary School will walk across the street with assistance from church employees. The cost for WWF is $100 per child, per semester; this cost covers material fees, snacks, and helps supplement youth workers.  Sign up forms can be found at the follow link.
