Bulletin Board
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:  You can also e-mail Tina Bense, director of Children’s Ministries, at, and she can forward the information to you.
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.

Minor Activity Form
As a church we are always striving to improve our best practices. A new Minor Activity Form has been created to ensure the safety of all our children. This form would be good for one year from the date of signature. I will have these forms on Sunday for you to take home and complete for each child. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
