Family Ministry Night – Every Wednesday, Whitehouse UMC hosts Family Ministry Night beginning at 6:00 pm. Students and adults engage in a time of worship, study, and mission opportunities followed by a family style potluck meal. Youth students are divided into YIMs (grades 6-8) and Youth (grades 9-12) for discussion styled instruction and games. After dinner, we gather on the sports fields for a game of Ga-Ga Ball, Sand Volleyball, Basketball, Baseball, or Football. There is something for all ages at Family Ministry Night.
Currently, our YIMs are studying the books of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd John and our youth are learning real-life applications of God’s word as they prepare to step into adulthood.
