Prayer Ministry Team
  [Less]

Each week there is a team of people that prays for the concerns of the congregation. When prayer cards are turned in on Sundays or during the week, the concerns are sent confidentially to the clergy staff and members of our prayer ministry team. The concerns are lifted to God in prayer each week. If you would like to be a part of this important prayer ministry, can commit to praying weekly for the concerns of the congregation, or have further questions, please contact Rick Isbell, Minister or Discipleship at risbell@churchstreetumc.org. Your help in this ministry is needed.

Teachers Needed
  [More]

It is that unusual time of year when everyone is on vacation but we begin the most important work we do in our children's Sunday school: recruit leaders for fall. Church Street has preschool classes that need teachers who will love, guide, and build lasting relationships with our young children. Our combined three & four-year-old class needs a team of four adults who will commit to leadership for one year. Four teachers on a team allows each team member time off to occasionally return to their own class throughout the year.

Spirit Adventure, our rotation Sunday school for first-fifth graders needs shepherds for each grade level. This commitment is also for one year and team shepherding is encouraged. Shepherds take attendance, welcome children, help with snacks, and accompany the students to their classes each week where other adults handle the teaching responsibilities.

Sunday school is the cornerstone of our Children's Ministry. Please consider making a difference in the lives of our children this year by being a teacher or shepherd. Contact Sue Isbell at sisbell@churchstreetumc.org to volunteer.
