Children’s Sabbath 2018

Children’s Sabbath is celebrated every October.  It is a time to focus on young people to let them know how important they are in the kingdom, because the ministry of the church is not only the work of adults.  Do not be fooled by the word children either.  It is a celebration of everyone 18 and under.
At FUMC Uvalde, we observe Children’s Sabbath by having children and youth lead all aspects of worship.  This means that they greet, usher, sing, perform, speak, pray, read scripture, and give testimony.  Service is always followed up by a kid-friendly meal of hamburgers, hot dogs, and mac and cheese.  As this luncheon is for everyone, we do ask that the congregation bring a large salad or dessert to share.  Then, in the afternoon, there are inflatable water slides, an obstacle course, a baby pool for the little ones, bubbles, chalk, and games.  This year, we will also have an inflatable mechanical bull!
Be sure to call your kids’ friends to invite them to church on this special day: Sunday, Oct. 14th.
