Children’s Ministry in the Senatobia District

Join us to make Children’s Ministry the best it can be in YOUR church

We would like to invite you to be a part of a group of people involved in Children’s Ministry in the Senatobia District.  If there are children within your congregation you are doing Children’s Ministry.  Why not make the best of it?  Join us for the organized meetings where we will get together and share ideas, plans, what’s working for you, what’s not working for you, ask questions of each other and most importantly PRAY WITH EACH OTHER.  We will meet together, have a meal and spend some time in the word.  We will discuss what’s on the agenda and help each other out.  Whether your church has 10 children or 100 children this small group is for you.  We invite volunteers, paid staff, pastors, and those interested in furthering the kingdom of God through the youngest members of our congregation.

Planned Meeting

April 25th @ Hernando UMC  

6:00 p.m.

Dinner is pot-luck

Topic: Summer is coming.  Now what do I do with these kids?

Coffeeville UMC Hosts Ladies’ Luncheon April 29

Coffeeville United Methodist Church will host a luncheon for women on Saturday, April 29, 11:00 – 1:00.  Lunch will be followed by a time of praise and worship.  The ladies of Coffeeville UMC offer this day as a gift to women in our community and area.  All ladies are invited to attend, and there is no charge.  Please make reservations by contacting the church office at (662) 675-2690.  You may also reserve your spot by responding to an invitation on Facebook for this event.

Cristen Craven Barnard of Senatobia, MS will bring a message titled “Have Faith Now” about how God makes His presence and His love real to us in every step of the process of grief.  Cristen is a member of Senatobia First United Methodist Church and a former member of Lyon United Methodist Church. She serves in the Mississippi Conference of the United Methodist Church as the Senatobia District Lay Leader.  She is a certified lay servant, Bible study leader, Sunday School teacher, and lay speaker. She serves on several UMC committees and is also a member of the Emmaus Community of NWMS and is part of a jail ministry team in Tate County. She and her husband Robert have 5 children and 3 grandchildren.  Cristen has lived in Senatobia since 2008. She was previously from the Delta and has worked as a professional artist for 35 years.

Cristen refers to herself as a once prodigal daughter, now home. “My Lord heard my cry and lifted me up from the pit and embraced me in his love. He took this prodigal and changed my identity forever, for I am His.”

We are excited to have Cristen Craven Barnard as our guest speaker and know that she will bring encouragement with her message.
