Our annual Community Easter Egg Hunt was held Saturday, March 29 at 10 AM.

We're  happy to see our children enjoying the nursery while the church service is held in the sanctuary. 

                         Here are the links for the Safe Sanctuary Documents for our church.  Thank you to the people who worked hard to develop these documents.

Children's Ministry

Nursery Care is available during both services for children ages infant through age 4, or not yet in kindergarten.

  The children are invited to GPS or Grow, Proclaim, Serve.  You can start out the morning in the 9:00a.m. Worship and after the offering the children will leave the Sanctuary for God’s Positioning System.  This will include Bibles stories, games, crafts, music, service projects, and also a visit to the Café.  We finish at 11:30a.m. when the second service has concluded.

Parents, you are invited to worship at either 9:00a.m., a traditional service, or 10:30a.m., a praise and worship service.  There are two adult Sunday School classes that meet at 10:30a.m. 

If the month has a fifth Sunday, there will be no GPS for Children.  We encourage you to have your child participate in Worship with you.  There will be activities for the children during the Adult Sunday School time of  10:30 to 11:30a.m.  

GPS replaces the designated Children’s Church and Sunday School for children.  Questions, see or call Joyce Hall.  We hope these changes are well received.


Vacation Bible School
June 24 - June 28, 2018

    It is time to grab your sunglasses and beach towels and get ready for some splashing fun at our Take the Plunge VBS! Take the Plunge is a water park adventure. But more than that, it’s a Bible adventure that you’re going to love. Each day we’ll Plunge into the word and learn how Jesus used the very common element of water to teach some very uncommon lessons.

           As we soak up the Word, we’ll Plunge into obedience, worship, courage, faith, and service. Each day we’ll Take the Plunge at Raise the Reef Praise, Oceans of Motions, the Snack Shack, Craft-Away Cove and Bibleland Bay.

           The twisting and turning of the splash-making adventure will take place each day from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM 

June 25 to June 29, 2017 -- right here at Leola UMC. So get prepared to get soaked as we Take the Plunge and Make a Splash with Jesus! It will be an adventure you’ll never forget!

NoteBible School on Thursday is at 6:30, the usual time.  The Closing Program (for parents, guests) begins at 7:30.  Refreshments follow the program.
