JOY Children’s Ministry
J=Jesus O=Others Y=Yourself
Fall 2023 Event Schedule

JOY kids’ ministry is for any child (birth thru 5th grade) who is a part of Cullowhee United Methodist Church and the surrounding community plus their families. We are a Jesus centered ministry who share love with one another and with neighbors in our community. ALL families are welcome to join us at JOY kids!

Our children’s ministry team (Ms. Kathy and Ms. Scarlette) is so excited for the fall semester! Our fall program consists of a mix of fellowship and service projects that we will do together once a month. Weekly, we offer nursery for our “whee” ones (birth thru pre-k) on Sunday mornings during both of our services and during Sunday school (8:45am-12:00pm). Our Kindergarten thru 5th graders are invited to Sunday school with Ms. Scarlette in the small fellowship hall on Sunday mornings at 10:00-10:45am. During this hour, we learn a Bible story and what the story can teach us. For our worship services, our K-5th graders can grab a “busy bag” as they enter the sanctuary that has age-appropriate bulletins, activities, and coloring utensils to use during worship.

Now, here is our FALL 2023 JOY kid’s calendar:

August: 20th-4th graders are presented with Bibles during both services, FALL KICK OFF at the Bembry’s for a pizza and pool party. Time: 12:30-2:30pm.

Lots of Love,

Ms. Scarlette
