September Virtual Family Ministry Event

Friday, September 25 at 7 PM

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since we got together for our SJUMC Family Ministry Event.  It’s not the same as being in person, but we’d like to bring some fun activities for our SJUMC families. We’ll play “Would You Rather…” game, make Origami puppy, and host a puppet show! In addition, we’d like all children and families to show off their “creative” masks, so please wear your decorated masks to this event. Because we will be online, our families and friends who are away from SJUMC will be able to join us as well. Please feel free to share the Zoom link with your friends and families.  Parents and Grandparents, bring your favorite beverage and something delicious to snack on, and we’ll check in and hang out together.  Please see the Zoom link, meeting ID and passcode below.  We’re looking forward to “seeing” you!

Introducing…our new youth group chat!

white smartphone

We’re rolling out a brand new way to stay connected as a youth group! Starting today, our youth can join our new group chat in order to receive instantaneous updates, stay connected as a community, and just have some fun with their fellow youth group members!

Youth, does this sound like something you want to be a part of? If so, please look over and complete this Google Form (click on “Google Form” to be taken to the form). You’ll need your parent’s permission before joining the group chat, so please let them know about this!

Parents, please make sure your youth ask you about this! We’ll make sure you still receive the same updates as your youth.

Can’t wait to see you all on the group chat!

Celebrating Grandparents Month!

“Grandparents and grandchildren have a very special connection. Grandparents are a crucial ingredient in the family mix and teach many things to their grandchildren, both by example and support. Their experience and knowledge enrich their grandchildren’s lives in countless ways. This month, we offer thanks and express great appreciation for their love and guidance.”

Please donate in memory of or in celebration of your grandparents! Your grandparent(s) will receive a card that you donated on behalf of her/him, and it will be listed on our newsletter!
