March Sunday School Series - You’re Invited!

When some people hear the word “worship,” they think of church buildings, or hymns, or special rituals. To some people, worship sounds pretty boring. But that’s not at all how God talks about worship! In the pages of Scripture, we discover that worship is so much bigger than what happens at church — and it’s definitely not boring. Worship is a party! And it’s a party we’re all invited to attend. In this series, kids will be invited to worship God both at church and at home as they learn that we can worship God through prayer, we can worship God by living for Him, we can worship God even during hard times, we can worship God out loud, and we’re all invited to Jesus’ party.

Easter Eggstravaganza - April 20th - 4:00 p.m.

This year’s Easter Eggstravaganza will include crafts, snacks, games and of course, an egg hunt on the lawn at at Platte City UMC. All are welcome to attend this free community event. A children’s musical program, Oh Happy Day, will follow the egg hunt around 5:00 p.m.
