Children Ministries

Update on Children's Ministry at Mt. Nebo UMC- There will be no face to face small groups meeting until further notice- this is in response to the present situation with the Coronavirus. We will try our best to provide you with resources you can use at home with your children. Some of these will be online resources, some will be devotions for children and families, and some resources will include family activities and crafts.

 

Your Family Can Make a Difference with a High Five

While we are finding new and different ways to connect... Take the 'High Five' challenge!!! Encourage everyone in your family to connect with 5 people this week who could use some encouragement or a special note.... A hand written message- picture drawn and colored- a special facetime message- or phone call. We could make someone's day by taking this 'High Five' Challenge.... If the 200 people who typically attend Mt Nebo on any given Sunday took the High Five Challenge, we could reach 1,000 people with a little love of Jesus this week.
