October Youth News

Hello and Happy October to everyone!  The youth group would like to thank everyone for supporting our Second Annual Lip Sync Battle!!!  What a fun time!!  We were excited that we got to battle with Riverside, Redlands, Hope and Upland UMCs!!  All donations went to support MUMC youth mission and camperships.  Thank you for your generosity!

A select number of youth are going to Mexicali for a mission trip the weekend of October 13th-15th.  Please pray for a safe, meaningful, life changing experience for them and the all volunteers who have been called to this ministry!  We meet at church at 6:00 PM and return Sunday afternoon.

The Youth wrap up their Savers Fundraiser on Sunday, October 8th so make sure to clean out your closets and bring all your donations to the youth office!  Soft items in bags are preferred!

The Youth are helping with the Chili Cook-off on Saturday, Oct. 21st, 5:00 PM-7:00 PM (youth need to be at the church at 4pm to help set up), and the Children’s Ministry Harvest Festival from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM on Sunday, October 29th.  They’re also having their own Halloween festivities in Friday, Oct. 27th with a spooky Halloween Scavenger Hunt.  They’ll meet at the church at 6:00 PM and be done by 9:00 PM.

In the love of Christ,

MUMC Co-Youth Directors

Sunday School

We are pleased to welcome back the following teachers Jenna and Derek Hudson with Pre-k, June Rivera with Kindergarten and 1st grade, Aileen Kohrmann and Karen Shumate with 2nd and 3rd grade, and DeeDee Warden and Janice Breuer with 4th and 5th grade. As usual Sunday school will take place every Sunday at 9:00 AM except the first Sunday of each month. After the Children’s Message Sunday school participants will exit the double doors to the left towards the Fellowship Hall where they will be greeted by their Sunday school teachers. On the first Sunday of every month children will stay in worship service with their families after the Children’s Message. Before you go in on the first Sunday don’t forget your MUMC Kids In-Service bags. This will help keep the younger ones busy during worship service. These bags are located at the Sunday school table in front of the sanctuary along with additional upcoming events and need to know information. Once Sunday worship is over children need to be picked up promptly.

Please join us October 29th for our Harvest Festival and Trunk-or-Treat. Here at MUMC Children’s and Family Ministry team is taking over the property with all the favorites again. In-N-Out burgers, bull riding, crafts, a petting zoo, and much more. The Harvest Festival starts at 3:00 PM and ends with our Trunk-or-Treat from 5:30 PM to 6:00 PM. Remember to wear your tasteful costumes and bring your treat bags to this fun, safe family friendly event. We are also looking for participants and vehicles for our Trunk-or-Treat. All you need is a creative decorated trunk and some individually wrapped candy and goodies to pass out. Most creative trunk wins a trophy and gift card. Sign-ups are located at the Sunday school table in front of the sanctuary.
