Families in Mission

We believe that loving and serving others is an important part of discipleship. We show our love for God in how we love others. Therefore we seek opportunities to involve children in loving our neighbors through acts of service and justice.

VBS Decoration Stations

When: Sunday June 11, 2023

             12:15 - 3 pm

Where: Fellowship Hall

Mission: Help us make our VBS decorations so we can turn MUMC into the magical and mysterious world of Adventure Island! We'll be making palm trees from pool noodles, cutting out leaves of many shapes and colors, making vines and leafy wall hang hangings and green links to make even more trees! There is something for all ages and skill sets to help with! This is a fun way to get kids excited about VBS!

A light lunch will be provided. (Build your own sliders, chips, dip, queso, fruit and veggies.) RSVP here!
