Our Youth Ministry 2018:

Hartford United Methodist Youth Ministry is comprised of two groups:  Youth Group which includes grades sixth through twelfth grade and Youth Club, grades first through fifth.

 .....We are looking for more involvement with our kids.  Please talk to Pastor MaryAnn on any ideas that you may have on "Stepping up to the Plate" and getting an organized youth group/club actively back in our Church! 

Pre-requisites are:  Commitment, In-Exhaustible Energy and Love  for helping to form Children's lives for the better, in God's Own Time....


Summer Camp Registration is Open!  It's time to think about how your children are spending their summer vacation!

Camping can satisfy what children need!  They experience faith, responsibility and cooperation as part of a caring community.  They experience self-exteem as children of God.  In a world where it is hard to be a kid, AND it is hard to be a parent, let East Ohio Camps be your partner in faith and the development of your child.  With hundreds of events to choose from, one will be right for you and your child!  Sports! Drama! Water! Horses! Great Places! Great Experiences!  All with trained, caring staff.  Contact Pastor Mary Ann, call the East Ohio Conference Camping Office at 1-330-499-3972 extention 108 or visit the site on the web at www.EOCSummercamps.org

Children's Sunday Church Bulletins

     Every Sunday morning after the Choir sings, there is "Blessings with the Children."  This is a time for all the children in the Sanctuary to come to the front and sit along the step in front of the altar to listen to a sermon directed especially for them.  Usually Margie Hunkus conducts the children's sermon.  In her absence, Pastor MaryAnn presides.

        After reorganizing the file cabinets in the Office at Church, I discovered several years of Children's original church bulletins for for the Sunday church services, age appropriate 3-6 years of age and also, 7-12 years.  So, we decided what an excellent idea to run these off for the kids.  The bulletins are available every Sunday, located in the back hallway entrance on the table there.  Please feel free to take them home for absentee children.                ~ Deb Filipovich, Church Secretary
