Drawing pictures for home-bound residents

All children and youth are invited during worship each week to share any pictures they have drawn as their offering. These pictures are then delivered to home-bound members of the church and local community.



Prayer partners

Each child and youth is paired with an adult in the congregation for ongoing mentoring and discipleship. These pairs pray for one another daily and participate in occasional service and fellowship opportunities together. A youth and mentor are pictured here making cards for Kairos Prison Ministry after Sunday worship.



Children’s Choir

Currently on hiatus due to the pandemic, the children’s choir practices several times per month during worship following the children’s sermon. The children share their musical gifts in worship and other special seasonal programs.

Thanks to the youth from Mt. Zion who participated in the United Methodist Mission week in June! A total of about 25 youth and adult volunteers from Mt. Zion, Clemson, St. Mark, and Salem UMCs did roof repair, painting, and cleaning for an older couple in Walhalla. Way to go!
