NEW LINK FOR
CHILDREN’S EVENTS
 
We have set up a Remind 101 group called SMUMC Kids to keep you updated on what is going on in the Children’s Ministry. If you would like to join, please go to this link: 
https://www.remind.com/join/smumck.  You can also e-mail Tina Bense, director of Children’s Ministries, at cmc@stmarysumc.org, and she can forward the information to you.
VOLUNTEER  SIGN-UPS
 
The new volunteer calendars are up and ready for some names to be added. There are two separate calendars – one for all preschool activities and one for all elementary activities. Volunteers can do as little or as much as they feel comfortable with. This is a great way to see what the kids are up to at church!  If you would like to help us out, please sign up.  We’d appreciate it.
NEWS
 
God Squad
God Squad is now open to 4th and 5th graders! We will meet from 4:00 – 5:00pm in the children’s room on the breezeway!
Hello Everyone,
We are asking all parents to fill out an information sheet for each of their children. This is so we have up to date information concerning allergies, etc. It also contains a photo release. Please see Tina or Yamila for a form.
 
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Please text or call 912-674-8839 or e-mail me at cmc@stmarysumc.org. Have a Blessed Week ~ Tina
Upcoming Events
KidzQuest
KidzQuest this year will be September 21-23. This is a weekend retreat for 3rd- 6th graders at Epworth By The Sea on St. Simons. The cost is $135.00. They are limiting registration to the first 500 participants. This may seem like a lot, but there are churches that travel all the way from the other side of Georgia to attend. Last year we missed out on going. To avoid this, registration forms are due no later than next Sunday, August 26th.
Scarecrow Stroll
October 16 (Tuesday) 5:30 – 7:00pm Scarecrow Stroll. The children’s ministry will be handing out candy. If you would like to help by donating candy, please bring it to the office or leave it in the Narthex.
Trunk-or-Treat
October 31 (Wednesday) 5:30 – 7:00pm Trunk-or-Treat. Conyers Street in front of the church will be blocked off, so you can park on either side of the road. I am also collecting candy for this event. It falls on Halloween this year, so there will be tons of kids. This is a great opportunity to fellowship with church members and minister to the community.
