Upcoming Children's Activities

Children’s Celebration ~ Ignite Service

What is Children’s Celebration? It is a time filled with stories, crafts, fellowship and play experiences offered for young

children, ages 3 years by August 28, 2017 - Kindergarten while their family attends worship. Children’s Celebration is currently offered for the 11:00 service. And now, we would like to offer a Children’s Celebration for the Ignite service. To provide and support this ministry, we need parent/adult volunteers to serve on a rotational basis – one Sunday a month from 9:25 - 10:00 a.m. Minimal preparation and everything you need will be provided for you.

  • If your child participates in Children’s Celebration during the Ignite service, we ask your willingness to serve as an adult volunteer. Please contact Leslie Merrill, 693.4275 or email: leslie@hvlfumc.org by Tuesday, October 10.
