On Deck: FUMC’s New Sixth Grade Program

Lucas, Marshall PD ice cream socialOn Deck, FUMC Allen’s new sixth grade program kicks off on Sunday, August 24.

Sixth graders!  Bring your swimsuits, beach towels, sunscreen and a not-white T-shirt to join the youth for the Battle of the Sahara at 5:30pm.

Parents, your meeting begins at 6:00pm in the Upper Room Chapel.

We’ll all be done at 7:00pm to head home to get rested for the new school year.

On Deck is for all 6th graders and will meet on Sundays at 9:30am or 11:00am in the West Children’s Wing.

On Deck will be a very different experience from what our sixth graders have done in the past at FUMC Allen. This exciting year will offer everything from service opportunities, to retreat experiences, outings, and additional fellowship opportunities. We will spend the school year learning about covenants, discussing our Christian heritage, growing together as a faith community, and  more.

All these experiences combine to lay a firm foundation for the seventh grade Credo Confirmation program.

Parents and other volunteers! As you think about the coming year, please pray about how you would like to serve. We have many opportunities, such as leading a small group on Sunday mornings, helping organize or chaperone an outing, or taking photos of the group. If you are interested in serving, contact Susan Hale, Youth and Adult Discipleship Coordinator, at 972.727.8261, x103.
