Wednesday After School Information and Form for your child to be picked up after School for Wonderful Wednesday

Dear Parents:

I hope you all have had a wonderful start of a new school year and are getting back into the fall routine. Wonderful Wednesday After School Program will start September 14th and we would like to invite your children and friends to our program. Attached you will find a permission form (that must be filled out and returned before Sept. 13) and rules for bus and at the church.

This program is open to all children in kindergarten through sixth grade. The sixth graders will be helpers. Once again this year we will pick children up from LJBell and Washington Street Schools. We will follow the school calendar therefore if there is an early dismissal or no school, we will not have Wonderful Wednesday.

I must have the attached completed permission form for each child in order for them to attend and ride the church bus. If you need extra copies, you may call the office at 895-4027 ext. 103 or print a form off the church’s website at Please make sure you send a note to your child’s teacher letting them know he/she will be riding the FUMC bus on Wednesday afternoons. The bus will pick them up in the bus parking lot on Wednesday afternoons. If your child is absent from school on a Wednesday, please call the church office to let us know he/she will not be riding the church bus. Car riders are welcome and will meet in the Fellowship Hall after school.

Upon arrival at the church the children will have a snack and playtime. We will have Bible Story, craft, and music. Our program ends at 5:00pm. You will pick your child up at the playground or, if raining, in the Fellowship Hall. Please go over the rules that are included in this mailing with your children.

We are still in need of volunteers to help. Please consider the opportunity to make a difference in our children by volunteering on Wednesday afternoons. You can call me at the church 895-4027 ext. 103, my cell 995-0473, or email me at If you choose one time, once a month, or every Wednesday, we can promise you Wonderful Wednesday will be a blessing for you and this ministry of our church. Your help means, giving one hour and a half to our children from 3:30-5:00. We appreciate all our volunteers from the past and hope to see lots of new faces.

Spread the word and invite friends!

We look forward to spending the afternoon with your children. Please give me a call at the church or email me if you have any questions.

In His Service,

Mary Griffith

Program Director
