FaithWeaver Friends
 
FaithWeaver Friends is a mid-week after-school program offered by FUMC and ministers to children from 4 years to 5th grade.  The emphasis of the program is helping children experience an incredible, personal friendship with Jesus.  Through the discovery centers (Projects with a Purpose, Music & Memory, Games, Surprise Station) and journaling, FaithWeaver Friends encourages kids to grow in their faith, outreach, and service to others.  FaithWeaver Friends meets each Wednesday afternoon from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. in the Dauphin Room of McDonough Hall.  School pick-up is available from Silsbee schools.  Contact Jennifer Suitt (385-5568) or Glenda Delano (291-9480) for additional information.

Safe Sanctuary
The Texas Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church has mandated that every church in the Conference must have a Safe Sanctuary policy, which meets minimum standards set by the Conference.  Through this program ALL PERSONS WHO WILL WORK WITH CHILDREN OR YOUTH in our church must receive special training aimed at protecting both the children and youth they will serve. They also must undergo a criminal background check through a professional company designated by the Annual Conference for such checks. While all this does occasionally create a hardship for the church in recruiting and maintaining a list of accepted adult leaders, it is testimony to our dedication to the creation of a safe and welcoming environment for the children in our care.  Please contact the church office at 385-5568 for more details or a copy of the complete policy.
