WALK WITH JESUS / PANCAKES WITH THE EASTER BUNNY

This family Easter Event is a time to come together as a community for breakfast, activities, Bible stories, and a helicopter egg drop. It's always the Saturday before Holy Week between 9 and 11:30 (egg drop happens near the end of the event).
 

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS)

Rocky Railway.  Save the dates of July 12th - 16th, 2020 for children ages 4 (& potty trained) through grade 6.  This high-energy VBS is full of great stations such as sing and play, games, snack, kid video cinema, Bible adventures, and imagination station.  The preschool program is revamped and somewhat separate from the rotations of school aged children.  Email or call Gina at gmatcraft@gmail.com / 937-514-3793 and give registration information. 
 

 CHILDREN’S CHOIR

This group sings about once every quarter for the various worship services, including the Mount Pleasant Retirement Village Chapel Service, as well as talent and variety shows. Upbeat and inspiring music fill the Church as the children present the joy of Jesus in song.
 

CHILDREN'S MUSIC, Dance, & Drama

The children of Monroe UMC actively participate in Easter, Christmas and VBS performances. Musicals are aimed at presenting a challenging message of Christ through drama, dance, and music.  ALL Children ages 3 through 6th grade have the opportunity to participate in the performances.
 

CHILDREN'S HAND BELL CHOIR

This group performs throughout the year in our services of worship as well as community events and gatherings.  Children range from age 3 to grade 6.  Music reading and experience is not necessary.  Children are amazed at themselves as they follow the director's flashcards and make beautiful music in only minutes.

BACK TO SCHOOL / Promotion SUNDAY

About a week before school begins, we'll have a "Back to School Bash" at Sunday School! Not only will we celebrate those advancing to the next grade level, but third graders will receive their own Bibles. We will pray for their safety and ask for God's blessing on each child's success.
 

Fun Fall Fest

This event is an opportunity for family units to come together for a lot of fun with a big slide, games, food, fellowship, and of course…lots of candy! Dress up, decorate a table, pass out candy, make a craft, eat a hot dog, or just come and enjoy the indoor festival – usually on Beggar’s Night on October 31st between 4:30 and 6:30PM.
