The Spanish Fort United Methodist Children’s Ministry is committed to growing disciples of Jesus Christ through opportunities to participate in mission projects that are ongoing efforts of the children’s ministry, as well as those that are done monthly.
Missional opportunities range from those that are connectional to the United Methodist Church globally, for the local community, and those that offer Christ’s love to people among our own church family who need to feel the love of Christ. Our monthly missions Serve Him Sunday and Work for Him Wednesday’s , are monthly mission projects that are done on the first Sunday and Wednesday of each month during normal program times.
UMCOR Disaster Response – Hygiene Kits
The children’s ministry serves in ongoing project that supports the United Methodist Committee on Relief Disaster Response organization within the United Methodist Church globally. Children focus specifically to provide Hygiene Kits to support the Disaster Response efforts of UMCOR. The collection of supplies happens throughout the year. Ministry wide packing days are held throughout the year to make the kits and send to UMCOR or areas in need of disaster response.
Prodisee Pantry – The Upper Elementary aged children participate in mission opportunities of serving directly at the Prodisee Food Pantry. In addition, ministry wide we help to provide hygiene kits as a resource for the Pantry to give people that they serve.
Monthly service projects re done throughout the year that are aimed for those who serve in our community such as first responders, police officers, nurses, teachers, and for those members of our church family who are facing times of hardship.
Children participate in Camp Retreats twice a year. Once in the Winter and Once in the Summer at Camp Blue Lake. Children grades 3rd – 5th can participate in these camp opportunities. Information regarding these retreats are communicated as time approaches for registration.
