Summer Sunday School for Elementary
Students (Pre K-4th)
Beginning Sunday June 5, the children will meet at the Pavilion. This study will provide hands-on experiences for children through games, crafts, snacks, music, and interest centers. We want our children to discover the Bible in a fun way that encourages them to come to Sunday School. The three classes will be combined and volunteers are needed each week to assist the lead teacher. If you would like to help nurture our children’s spiritual growth by volunteering, please contact one the children’s ministry leaders: Karen Jones or Angie Ketchum.

Reading Volunteers Needed!
Epworth UMC has partnered with Project Transformation for the past 5 years, supporting the ministry of college students who provide a free literacy day camp for children in need. Our congregation graciously supplies funds, meals, prayers, and volunteers to help with this ministry.
Our most vital contribution is the reading volunteers we bring to Antioch UMC to read one-on-one with the children in the program. We need reading volunteers on these days:
- Monday, June 27th 9:15 to 12:15
- Tuesday, June 28th 9:15 to 12:15
- Wednesday, June 29th 9:15 to 12:15
- Thursday, June 30th 9:15 to 12:15
