♥ Jesus: A Children’s Valentine Event Celebrating God’s Love

♥ Jesus: A Children’s Valentine Event Celebrating God’s Love

This special event celebrates the love Jesus shows us, the love we have for Jesus and the love we share with others.  A pot luck dinner, games, crafts, and activities are geared for children 2-12 years old and their families.

Annual Children’s Easter Celebration

A family favorite – this event features egg hunts for different age groups, crafts, games and a bounce house.  Previously a preschool event, we have now expanded the fun to include children 2-8 years old.  We hold this event in our Recreation and Outreach Center (ROC) so the event goes on rain or shine!

Third Grade - Bibles Awarded

Here at Centreville United Methodist Church it is our tradition to award bibles to our rising third graders each fall.  Shortly after the presentation we invite our third graders to a special bible exploration event.  At the event our third grade “Bible Detectives” work as a team to solve bible story cases, make ribbon bookmarks and bible crafts, learn some bible reference tips and take home a small scripture gift.

Trunk or Treat

It’s not too early to start planning your “trunk” or create a fabulous “costume” design for our Trunk or Treat event!  This popular event invites children to dress up in costume and go “trick or treating” among the decorated cars.  Children and families can also play some carnival type games, jump in the bounce house, sample cotton candy, apple cider and enjoy a free hot dog dinner! Prizes awarded for best costumes and best decorated vehicles!

Church Family Advent Decorating Event

On this evening church members and families gather together to share a pot luck meal and then divide into teams to decorate the church for Christmas!  Our little ones, age 3 years to 2nd grade, are invited to gather in the chapel to play games and make handmade ornaments to decorate our very own Children’s Church Christmas Tree. Children 3rd grade and up are invited to help the adult and youth teams decorate the rest of the church.

Family Advent Events

Each Advent we join our children in celebrating the joy of Christmas with special children’s and family events. It has also been our tradition to offer an especially family friendly worship experience during the first (or earliest) service on Christmas Eve. Be watchful to see what wonders we have planned this coming Advent season!

Family Board Game Nights, Family Movie Nights, Scavenger Hunts and more!

We’d love for you to come join the fun! Check out our current e-newsletter for details!
