ELEMENTARY WEDNESDAY AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
For the 2016-2017 school year, Stanardsville United Methodist Church will hold an after-school program at the church called, ELEMENTARY WEDNESDAYS. Rising 3rd to 5th grade students are invited to join us on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday each month from 3:15 PM until 4:30 PM. Activities will include crafts, a Bible lesson, snacks, and fun games.
Bus transportation will be provided from Nathanael Greene Elementary School on bus #49. Parents must send a note of authorization for this transportation each Wednesday, or they may call the school. Students from Ruckersville Elementary School are welcome to attend but must provide their own transportation. Parents must come to the church to pick up their student by 4:30 PM each Wednesday. Space is limited to the first 12 children who sign up.
Registration/release forms must be completed before a student may attend. Please contact Sharon Morris at 434-985-3321 to arrange picking up of a Registration/Release form. Join us for a time of fun and learning this coming year.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
At Stanardsville United Methodist Church we affirm our belief in the one living and true God in whom there are three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We witness to the presence of God’s grace, God’s unmerited favor toward us, revealed to us in God’s Son Jesus Christ, and constantly at work in and through us in our daily lives through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We believe it is God’s grace that first comes to us convincing us of our need for God. Through grace, once we have repented of our sins, we are forgiven and our relationship with God is reconciled and restored. This same grace continues to work in our lives drawing us ever closer into the very likeness of God in Jesus Christ and creating in us a strong faith relationship with him. Our salvation then is by God’s grace through our faith in Jesus Christ.
Through the power of the Holy Spirit we seek to understand and communicate to others the love of God given to us in Jesus Christ. As we grow in understanding, we reflect critically on four guidelines in matters of our faith. First, we believe in the primacy of Scripture as necessary to our salvation and to the revelation of God. Second, we rely on our Christian traditions as authentic and faithful witness to the message of Scripture. In order to be effective in our witness to Scripture and the traditions of the church, we rely thirdly on our own Christian experience along with lastly our reason. We seek confirmation within our own experiences of the truth of God’s grace, and we engage our God given minds as the practical source of reason for providing insight to the deeper meaning of our faith.
