B.O.N.D. (Building On New Disciples)

As a bridge from Discovery Club to SNL Youth Group, BOND is a program for just 5th and 6th graders. It meets almost every week on Sunday evenings to connect students with each other, adult leaders, and God. BOND to has a strong focus on serving together in the community (monthly trips/projects) while learning about Christian practices to help them make the physical and spiritual transition from childhood to adolescence.

 At First UMC we strive to blend the ministry of parents and the family with the ministry of the Church in order to help our children grow in a loving relationship with God.

Contact Cassie McCachren for questions or more information on any of these groups.
