Let the Little Children Come     I had the opportunity to spend time with our Sunday School children when the Praise Team debuted. The children were taking a break before they were going to sing Christmas songs for the congregation. Lea Varda, myself, and the children enjoyed playing a memory game to relax. The children were bright, inquisitive, innocent, and most of all, free from negative thoughts and emotions.

We as adults sometimes forget the carefree childhood we all had before growing up. The children learned a lot playing ‘My Grandmother’s Trunk.’ I hope I learned the next time I want to say an unkind word or get angry when someone cuts me off in traffic, or I get impatient with a loved one, that I remember the simple lesson the Junior Worship children shared with me. Good job, kids and parents.  –Patty Ronan 

 The Adult Sunday school    Meets during the School year on Sundays at 9:15 a.m. to talk with each other about God and the church and how it is that we can best serve as disciples of Jesus.   You are welcome to join us!  Please call the office, 774-2545, if you would like a book and more information about the class.  Between now and May 20, the group will study Paul's letter tot he Ephesians.  Everyone is welcome.  Adult SS will take a summer break after that.  

Did You Know?...Our TUMC library is available to you! Located in the church office, the library contains many authors, titles, and selections.   Come check it out!
