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.
Nursery: The Nursery, for newborns up to 4 years old, is located in the children’s ministries wing behind the sanctuary. Parents may drop children off for the 10:30 worship service each Sunday beginning at 10:15am.
Children’s Church: Children’s Church is divided into 2 age groups:
4 years – 1st grade will be in Ms. Tina’s room on the breezeway across from the Sanctuary
2nd – 5th grade will be in Ms. Yamila’s classroom next to the double doors to the right of Bailey Hall.
All children will start and end in their Children’s Church room. Masks are optional

Upcoming Events
 Here’s what we have planned:
Backpack Blessing – August 1st: If you carry a backpack to school, work, or just for fun bring it to church, so we can pray a blessing over it.
KidzQuest is an elementary retreat for 3rd – 6th graders. This is a wonderful time for the kids of the church to grow closer to the Lord and each other. This year it will be held September 24 – 26. This event fills up fast, so I will have a hard deadline to RSVP of August 29th. It is usually held at Epworth by the Sea, but the location is TBA. As soon as I get more information, I will pass it on.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
If you have any questions about any children’s activity, please do not hesitate to contact me: text/call 912-674-8839 or e-mail me at
