What about my kids?
 
We have a great children’s program because we know that children are the future of the church! Your little ones are welcome to stay with you in worship or join in our age appropriate children’s ministry.  We have a nursery for the infants, a pre-school room for 2-5 year olds and Sunday school rooms for 1-2 grade and 3-5.  
 
Our workers have up to date background checks and have a heart for teaching and encouraging your children in their faith.  If you have any more questions concerning children’s ministries at the Gathering at Scott Memorial UMC, please contact Megan Hosseinipoor, Director of Children’s Ministries.
What should I wear?
 
Wear whatever you’re comfortable in. The pastor wears jeans, so it’s definitely okay to be casual.
 
How do I get into a small group?
 
The easiest way is to just show up!  We have many different opportunities and groups to meet many needs.  If you’d like more info on a particular group, contact Pastor Rachel Gilmore and she’ll  answer any questions.
