We at Pearl City UMC reasonate with the way Rev. Ritter has condensed John Wesley's thoughts and are actively pursing means to accomplish them all.
The seven things are:
- Teach Them Intentionally
- Know Them Personally
- Pray for Them Intensely
- Mentor Families Meaningfully
- Challenge Ourselves Continually
- Shape our Ministries Appropriately
- Care for Them Practically
Below are the three ways that we have identified as ways to begin accomplishing this fundamental task.
KiHK (Kids Helping Kids) is our soon-to-be-launched new youth group. Founded on the principles of enagement and mission, KiHK is more than just gathering in a dark room in the basement to read a devotional and have some fellowship time. Instead, KiHK members will live out gospel by planning and implementing events designed to raise money or secure donations for children in the community that are in need.
Our Sunday school program currently consists of two classes, one for children Pre-K to 1st grade and one for those in 2nd to 6th grades. Classes meet during the worship service following the Children's Message.
All children are welcome and encouraged to attend, and no prior attendance is necessary.
Vacation Bible School is a week-long experience for all school-aged children. Full of high-energy songs and games, crafts, stories, and food...all participants leave full of joy and full of the Holy Spirit.
