Thanksgiving Meal Program

IMG_3008

2018 was our second year providing meals to the homebound members of our community. Our youth worked hard preparing meals of turkey, rolls, green beans, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie for our deliveries.

Much thanks to all of the adult workers that helped make this possible. Cathy Helfer for working hard in the kitchen and preparing desserts, Jon Hetzel for driving our youth to the deliveries, and all of those workers at Sinclair’s Bakery that cooked the turkey for us which saved us a lot of time!

This year we were able to have four different teams go out into the community and deliver meals as well as spend some time talking to the individuals we delivered to.  I think the youth did a great job this year and I look forward to increasing those that we are able to bless next year!

If you would like to help support this mission, be sure to check out our Mission Of The Month list or our Noisy Offering list for how to support us financially or e-mail the church at jerseyvillemethodist@gmail.com for ways to get involved delivering meals, preparing desserts, or adding a name to our list for receiving a meal.  Thank you for your support!

Creation Station

Creation Station is a fun activity for youth from Kindergarten to 5th grade.  Each month, children will get a chance to get creative with our awesome Creation Station leader, Mindy Radcliff.  She organizes art activities, crafts, and more that allow youth to express themselves and learn more about Jesus.

Creation Station always meets on Tuesdays from 4:30pm-5:30pm.

Our current upcoming sessions are:

February 26th

March 26th

April 30th

If you would like to sign up for the event, please contact the church office or fill out the information below:

 

If you have more than one child to register, please enter additional names in the box above.

Tailgate Sunday

On Sunday, November 25th, the church will be having a Tailgate Sunday.

Members are encouraged to wear their team colors, jerseys, hats, ties, and whatever else to support their team…maybe not face paint.

Yeah, definitely not face paint

After Sunday School all are invited to the church parking lot to grill some food and hang out with other church members.

Bring your own grill and meat along with any tailgating games you have.

We will have some games setup like Hillbilly Golf, Washers, and Kan Jam. We will also have some tv’s set up outside so we can watch the games.

We’ve invited the youth groups from other area churches to come hang out with us as well. Members from the Baptist church, Charity Christian Center, and 1AG, are invited to cookout with us and we’ve challenged them to a game of Flag Football.

So dust off your cleats, bring some Icy Hot, and play some football with us!

Weenie Roast and Haunted Farm

On Saturday Oct. 27th, we’ll have a weenie roast/haunted farm trip for both Jr. and Sr. High youth. Meet at the church at 5pm and then we’ll head out to Louie and Rachel’s house for a weenie roast. When it gets dark, we’ll head across the street to ‘R’ Acres Haunted Farm.

If you don’t like haunted houses/farms, no problem! You can stay at the weenie roast while the rest of us get scared. You may even hear our screams. Seriously, it’s loud out there.

We’ll have soda and hot dogs, plus things for S’mores, but I encourage you all to bring your favorite chips or cookies.

We’ll need plenty of chaperones for this trip–a few for the weenie roast and some for the haunted farm. If you’d like to volunteer for one or the other, please let me know. Thanks all! Sign up below or on our facebook page.

If you are donating snack food or drinks, please specify what you are donating so I can post it to the website for others to see. We don't want to end up with 100 hot dog buns and no weenies! Thank you for being such an awesome and generous church!
