Sunday School

A team of committed volunteers has developed a strong and very well attended children’s Sunday School program here at J.C.U.M.C. The program runs from September through June. Children attend the first half of the regular worship service which includes a children’s message followed by the collection of the Noisy Offering. Children collect loose change from congregation members in tin buckets which make a lot of noise, hence the name.  We conclude with a prayer of thanks and the children then go to their respective Sunday School classes for age appropriate lessons and activities while the adults participate in the remainder of the service.

Our nursery will be open every Sunday welcoming our littlest Christians from infants to pre-K children. The elementary children (kindergarten through fourth grade) will have Sunday school the first and third Sunday of the month. Craft Sunday will be on the second Sunday of the month for the elementary children. The youth group (fifth grade through twelfth grade) will have Sunday school the second and third Sunday of the month.

ALL WOMEN OF THE JACKSONVILLE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH are invited to join us for fellowship, fun, and great food. We meet the FIRST THURSDAY of each month at 10:30 a.m. for our regular UMW meeting followed by a brown bag luncheon. Dessert and beverage are provided. 

Friendship Donations Network provides produce, breads, desserts, dairy, deli, and groceries (if available) to the programs listed below. For a complete listing of food pantries and community meals in Tompkins County, please visit hsctc.org/food.
Founded in 1988 by Sara Pines, MSW, Ph.D., Friendship Donations Network’s mission is to rescue fresh nutritious food from stores and farms that would otherwise be thrown away and redistribute it to neighbors in need. This is accomplished by an extensive network of volunteers who pick up donations of mostly perishable excess and day-old food and deliver them to pantries and programs that serve in excess of 2,100 people weekly. We divert over 500,000 lbs. of good food from the landfill each year! Find us on Facebook.
