“One thing I do—forgetting what is behind and straining forward toward what is ahead. I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Jesus Christ. I’ve got my eye on the goal where God is calling us onward to Jesus. I’m off and running and I’m not turning back.”
Kids from 3 years through high school will “move up” to their new school grade for the 2017 – 2018 school year. For children ages 3 (by September 1) through fifth graders, that means going to a new classroom for Sunday School. Sixth graders will begin the exciting year of Confirmation this Sunday—don’t forget to register! Donna and TC Selman will be returning to lead Middle School Sunday School for seventh and eight grade students. And ALL youth grades 7th-12th will meet in the attic at 9:30AM before dispersing to their respective classrooms.
At Vacation Bible School this summer, we learned that God is calling each of us toward the goal in Jesus Christ.
This is a great time of year to “begin again.” It’s time to get back to a daily and weekly routine. There are many opportunities at TUMC for your children and youth. For children: LOL, SOS, GIG, and M&Ms will start in a few weeks. There will be three midweek Bible studies for youth beginning soon along with mystery trips, Kickstart and activities. We hope and pray that you will make TUMC a part of your daily and weekly routine for your kids and for your sake! Your children and youth staff are prayerfully working to offer opportunities and ministries that will make the goal in this race meaningful and attainable.
We hope to see you this Sunday! Wear your school/work shoes to church. We’ll all receive a blessing during prayer time in the worship services.
