 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 MUSICALS

The children of Monroe UMC actively participate in Christmas and other seasonal musicals throughout the year.  Musicals are aimed at presenting a challenging message of Christ through drama and music.  Children ages 3 through 6th grade have the opportunity to participate in the musicals.
 

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 SUNDAY

Each year we begin the school year with a special service of blessing for students, families, and educators.  We support our local schools and continually pray for their safety learning. Each child receives a back to school gift and blessing as they enter a near year of learning. On this Sunday, children are promoted to the next age level of Sunday school, if applicable. Children entering grade 3 are presented with their own adventure Bible.
 

Fall Festival/Trunk or treat

This event is an opportunity for family units to come together for a lot of fun with a big slide, games, picnic food, and fellowship.
