First United Methodist Church in Altus is taking on a new vision of ministry for the Intermediate students.
Victoria Cleveland, the Children’s Pastor, at FUMC believes that during the 5th and 6th grade time period, many kids begin to make life choices that will determine what path they will take in life. Often, adults look back at their early pre-teen years and remember how painful, confusing and difficult that time of growing up was.
In 2012, this difficult time is not any easier, in fact it is most likely more traumatic. First Methodist Church is starting a Worship Service on Wednesday night’s from 6 to 7:15 p.m., specifically for 5th and 6th graders in Altus and surrounding areas. This service is called “Christ Inside” and it is designed to bring hope and promise to kids facing a world full of confusion, corruption, loneliness and doubt. Jesus is the only answer, He alone brings peace and joy.
