Children and Family Ministries
Children lead the congregation in worship at University UMC by serving as acolytes (carrying the "light" into and out of worship), and Bible bearers (carrying the Bible into worship).
Please choose any times/dates that your child is available to serve. 3rd graders can serve as Bible bearer. 4th and 5th graders can serve as acolytes. If your child has not served this way before, please contact me in advance, and we'll plan a quick training session. When you register your child, please list YOUR CHILD'S name.
On your child's assigned day, please help them find a robe from the closet upstairs, and then have them meet me on the pew in the back of the sanctuary by 10:50. Acolytes also need to get a candle-lighting wand from the closet before they meet in the sanctuary.
