Family Life Center

You, also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”  - 1 Peter 2:5

Welcome to the SUMC Family Life Center Page!

Over 20 years ago God gave us a vision to reach people with the life-changing message of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Because we have been faithful with that vision over the years, our church family has grown both in spiritual depth and in membership. 

 

This outreach has necessitated the building of facilities to house our growing congregation.  Our first endeavor moved us “Forward in Faith” as we took a huge step in building our current sanctuary in 1990.  As that sanctuary filled with seekers, believers, and disciples our second building endeavor was to construct our educational wing in 2000 to provide meeting space for our congregation to learn more about Jesus and His call upon our lives.

 Our church continues to grow.  

  • Both our youth and children’s ministries are causing serious facility deficiencies that necessitate the need for additional meeting space for students and children. 
  • As a safe church we want to provide the best and safest environment for our children to “grow in the knowledge of the Lord.” 

The vision God gave us so many years ago--worship, discipleship, and fellowship--is being fulfilled before our eyes.  This third endeavor is to construct a Family Life Center for fellowship and for even greater outreach into our community to win them for Christ! 

 Imagine and dream: 

  • The Lord’s Clothes Tree having the entire old youth center. 
  • The youth enjoying room and big enough to hold 200 kids for their activities. 
  • The children having a dedicated section that is safe and secure. 
  • Men playing basketball in the SUMC Men’s League. 
  • Women playing in SUMC volleyball league. 
  • The Character Power closing program in the Family Life Center with 1000 parents attending. 
  • Nearly 750 children and youth involved in our summer Vacation Bible School. 
  • A fulltime Director of Leisure Ministries orchestrating a variety of sporting and health related activities for SUMC and Winslow Township.

Our dream is big.  Our vision is bold.  We want to attempt great things for our God that only He can do working in and through us to reach a lost world.  Join us in this adventure of a lifetime that has eternal significance and consequences.
