Confirmation Class of 2020
On 09-08-2019, 10:00 a.m.
Confirmation is an eight-month program designed to help foster a faith foundation for young people so that they may continue to grow into mature, active, and committed members of the body of Christ. We seek to achieve this goal in Confirmation through regular meetings (which take place mostly during the 10:00 a.m. Sunday School and Small Groups hour at the church), mentorships, partnering with parents, retreats, service projects, and similar activities.
This year’s confirmation classes begin Sunday, September 8, and run through Sunday, April 19, 2020. Thank you for partnering with us as we walk alongside you in the discipleship of your children!
DayShore Kids Summer Day Camp • July 29 – August 2
On 07-29-2019, 8:30 a.m.
The Children’s Ministry Group has decided to bring in Dayshore–a day camp partnership with Lakeshore Camp & Retreat Center’s crew–instead of the traditional Vacation Bible School.
Dayshore brings the fun of “stay away camp” to Jackson and First Methodist Downtown is going to host it! It’s a Christ-centered week full of silly games, fun songs, unique worship and lots of exciting activities.
Dates: Monday, July 29th – Friday, August 2nd, from 8:30 am-3:30 pm each day. It will be available for children entering Kindergarten through 5th Grade this fall.
Cost is $25 per child, which includes a T-shirt. Space is limited.
The DayShore parental consent form MUST be downloaded, signed and returned to the church offices by Wednesday, July 25, at 5:00 p.m. You may download the file here:
Senior Activity Days • Thursdays 1:00 p.m.
On 05-09-2019, 1-4:00 p.m.
We are scheduling a regular weekly “come and go” social time for our seniors and friends to gather, fellowship and play games. On Thursdays, from 1 – 4:00 p.m., we’ll be gathered up on the mezzanine.
Bring your own cards, favorite board games, dominoes, etc., to share. Bring along your entire bridge group, or teach others to play bridge! Most importantly, we’ll have a regular time for some fun fellowship.
