UPCOMING EVENTS

Below are our upcoming events and any active event signups.  Our special upcoming events are at the top in date order and you can find our recurring monthly events down further.  Check back often as these will change frequently.  

  • Griefshare - Wednesdays, January 9th through April 3rd, 2:00pm to 4:00pm

    Christ UMC offers a grief support group. GriefShare is a 13 week, Biblically-based video series. Our current session runs through December 5th. We meet on Wednesdays at 2 PM. We will begin a new session on Wednesday, January 9th, 2019, again, at 2 PM.

    Enrollment:$20 per 13 week session (scholarships are available.) 

    If you are grieving the loss of a family member or friend, and would like to be a part of this caring group, please join us. If someone in your life may benefit, please tell them about GriefShare-you'll find brochures on the table in the lobby, between the doors.

    You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any time during the session. Each chapter is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any of the videos you have not seen.

    If you are not available during the day, please note that Calvary Baptist Church, our neighbor at 1380 S Valley Forge Rd, is offering an evening (7 PM) session, beginning Wednesday, January 16th, 2019. You can enroll at www.GriefShare.org.

  • VBS Reunion & Game Night - Febrary 1 at 6pm

    This year we will be combining our 3rd annual VBS Reunion Event, for our children, with our game night for adults, on Friday, February 1st from 6-8:30.  Children 4 years - 6th grade will participate in the VBS reunion event where we will eat pizza, play games, and have fun with VBS friends.  Children will be in rooms based on their age level so that we can create a night of fun for all ages.  Even if your child didn't attend VBS this summer, they are invited to come out and join in the fun! 


    While the VBS Reunion is happening, adults of all ages (with and without children) are invited to come out and play games.  Please bring your favorite games  plus a food item to share for dinner.  Nursery will also be provided for families that require it to attend the game night. 

    Everyone must register on our website.  CLICK HERE TO REGISTER! Space is limited for children so please sign up today!  Adults and youth are free.  We are asking for $3 per child to help cover the cost of their dinner.  You can pay at the door!  If you are interested in volunteering for the event, please let Pastor Tawny know.  We are looking for adults that  are safe sanctuary cleared, as well as youth volunteers.
