After School Ministry and Bus Ministry at First United Methodist Church of Wetumpka

After School Ministry and Bus Ministry starts TOMORROW (Aug. 24)

The After School Ministry and Bus Ministry starts back TOMORROW (Wednesday, August 24th) from 3:15 pm –  5:15 pm in the Family Life Center. We offer bus pick up from a few local schools  (Wetumpka Elementary, Middle, and High Schools) to FUMC Wetumpka (snack provided). Regularly attending students, and students who ride the church bus, need a permission form to be part of on and off campus hangouts in order for us to best care for each person. First-time guests do not need a form.

Remember you must turn in a new permission form to me, Jamie, BEFORE you can ride the bus or attend any in person on campus hangouts! You can also download the form here or talk to me if you need a hard copy and/or someone to notarize it!

Safety guidelines (as of August 23, 2022):
  1. Please do not attend in-person events if you are feeling sick or experiencing a fever, runny nose, cough, sore throat, or showing any other signs of sickness. We will notify parents/guardians to have sick students picked up/sent home. Temperatures will be taken as deemed necessary. *Please do not attend if you have been sent home sick from school or did not attend school due to sickness.
  2. Please do not attend in-person events if you have been in close proximity to someone who has tested positive for COVID in the last 5 days
  3. Masks and hand sanitizer stations will be available.
  4. Church-wide air filtration systems and a small air
    purifying unit in the student ministry room.
  5. Individually wrapped snacks and drinks will be safely placed in tamper proof bags and opened/eaten outside when possible.
  6. Be extra kind, encouraging, and understanding during this time since so many people have been affected in both big and small ways relationally and emotionally during this season of life.
  7. The rooms will be sanitized by our cleaning crew after each Wednesday and Sunday.
