Messy Church is an interactive worship and learning experience designed for families with children. But you don’t have to be a kid to like it! It’s for everyone – people who love church and people who don’t usually go to church, and people of any age who prefer learning by doing and moving instead of sitting in pews.
Messy Church meets the fourth Sunday of each month from 11 – 1 AM in the Student Center.
The first hour is packed with creative activities based around a story from the Bible. Then, we have about 15 minutes of “celebration” (aka worship), which is interactive and child-friendly. We sing songs, share a short Bible message, explore how we can apply it to our week and pray together. We end with a family-style meal. Parents are free to stay for the entire experience or go to our Open House Praise service for the first hour and then join children and other families for lunch at noon.
Please contact kids@LGUMC.org if you would like to volunteer with the Messy Church Team.
