St. Paul's Children & Youth Ministries running at full speed!

Updated: Oct 19, 2021

The Children & Youth Ministries at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Ocala, FL are running at full speed. Each week the SPKidz TEAM prepares and implements a lesson for the SPKidz Nursery and SPKidz. The upper elementary and early Middle School Youth meet with me each Sunday morning for their own unique lesson as iCLUB and sometimes join the children for certain activities.

Praise NEW GENERATION has a tight-knit team and has already shared their first musical presentation of God's word in worship.

SPYouth have a full slate of activities throughout the calendar year including a retreat, Rock The Universe, Trunk or Treat Drive Thru, possible mini Mission Trip to the Florida United Methodist Children's' Home later in the year, a Lock-In, Advent Wreath Kit creation/delivery and much more...

The number of youth in various leadership roles during the Sunday morning worship service continues to increase! They are active in the children's ministry, the music ministry, serving as greeters, opening doors, sound system, livestream and more.

If you haven't been to the in-person worship you are missing a lot of information on the Narthex screens including scripture, tutorials for Online Giving, visuals of what is happening on other parts of the campus and so much more. Some our youth are also learning the new information system driving these displays.

If you thought St. Paul's was shut down, nothing could be further from the truth.

Keep watching this blog ( and while here check out the other information on the Children & Youth website (

AND as they say on TV, WAIT THERE'S MORE!!!!

I'll end this one with a hint. Check back often for information on all seven of the Children & Youth ministries! Have a great week and hope to see you on Sunday morning!!!!
