"And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 

You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, 

and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise."

- Deuteronomy 6:6-7

TEACHING MINISTRIES

    There are various opportunities for children to be engaged in specific Christ-centered curriculum throughout the year! Be on the lookout for Movie Nights, Parents’ Night Out, Lock Ins, Retreats, Fall Festival, Easter Egg Hunt on Coleman Hill, Christmas Activities and VBS.


    Sunday School | 10:00 a.m. - 10:45 a.m.

    We welcome children to join us on Sunday mornings for Sunday School at 10 on the 2nd floor as we gather to build a faith foundation to last forever.  Godly Play is our base curriculum, and we divide into groups based on grade.


    Children's Church | During Sanctuary Services

    We have in person Children's Church for ages PreK - 5th grade at both our NewRoom and Sanctuary services. Kids will be checked in as they arrive with their families for worship.  We will invite the children to exit before the sermon with Rev. Julia Norman and volunteers. After their lesson together the children will be escorted to the Nursery area and playground.  Please contact Julia if you have any questions or would like to volunteer with this ministry.  


    We are asking that you pre-register for Children's Church, but anyone is welcome!  

     

    Nursery Care | During Sanctuary Services

    All ages of children are welcome to fully participate in any worship service at Mulberry St. UMC. Nursery care is available for children who are in PreK and below, we do ask that you preregister for nursery care each week. Disposable worship packs with coloring pages, quiet activities and crayons will be supplied for all children who remain in worship.

Adult Opportunities

MULBERRY’S UNITED METHODIST WOMEN

Through our work, we attempt to turn faith, hope and love into action on behalf of women, children and youth around the world. We support the North Central District as well as local and distant mission projects. At this time there are two circles. One meets at noon once a month and the other meets in the evening and each has a study led by a teacher. Members make annual pledges and have fund raising projects to fund our mission projects. For more information, please contact Carol Pope by clicking on the button above.

Prayer Shawl

We are a group of dedicated volunteers who meet in the Fellowship Hall to crochet and knit once a month on the third Monday at 2pm.  We love to catch up and visit while creating.   Group members also crochet and knit on their own during the month and bring completed projects to the church.  All skill levels are welcome!  The blankets, shawls, hats, and scarves are then blessed in prayer and given to people in need of extra loving care.  We have given to new babies, shut in members, those who have experienced loss and to our homeless neighbors.

The rosser ii clasS

Named in sweet memory of the original Rosser Ladies Bible Class, meets on the 3rd floor of the Education Building. Our adult members span several decades, and we have singles, married couples, and widowed and divorced members alike. Our lessons and discussions are facilitated by class members with guest teachers occasionally from Mulberry and beyond. The class usually selects a book study to cover multiple weeks, but no one is discouraged from joining in mid-study since much can still be gained from the discussion with others. We have taken in-depth looks at books from the Old Testament and New Testament of the Bible as well as Methodism and current events through a biblical lens. Apart from our studies together on Sunday mornings, the class regularly socializes and volunteers together around Macon, and we love to meet new people and welcome them into our group! For more information, please contact Julia Magda by clicking on the button above.


THE JOURNEY CLASS

Our group is maturing into a 30-40 something group composed of mostly young couples with and without kids, but we welcome anyone in the young adult category to join us. With a focus of 'Don't Stop Believing,' we encourage each other through all the new adventures and phases of the journey of life we are sharing together. Members share and rotate teaching responsibilities, encourage group discussions, and have guest speakers. Members participate in mission projects and community outreach such as Salkehatchie, the F3 organization, and children's ministry. The class is responsible for the Angel Tree project and shares responsibility for the Chrismon Tree with the Cokesbury class. We also fellowship together outside the Sunday School hour with oyster roasts, cookouts, and lake days. Class meets in the upper level Asbury Building at 9:45 a.m. on Sundays.

THE MUSTARD SEED CLASS

Formed in 1990, meets on the second floor overlooking the atrium. Our members range in age from 40s to 60s. We are married, single and divorced. Our lessons are discussion based, with members rotating as discussion leaders.  We utilize the Methodist Adult Bible Series, other current event series, video/discussion series and  leaders will sometimes chose a topic of particular interest to discuss. Our lessons  do not build on previous material covered, so it is always a good time to visit. We support ministries of Mulberry, families at Christmas, and charities in particular need. For more information, please contact Beth Smith by using the button above.

The Joy Sunday School Class

The Joy Sunday School Class meets on the 2nd floor of the Education Bldg.

from 10:00 am until 10:45 each Sunday. Our class consists of members between the ages of about  55-90 years of age.  Russ Barber, Carol and Mickey Pope

serve as the class leaders.  Sam Lamback, Steve Rumford and Mickey Pope are the regular teachers and we use the United Methodist Adult Sunday School literature. Our average attendance runs between 12 and 18 and we welcome visitors.


Y'ALL

Y'all. If you're from the South, you know what it means, and if you're new here, you quickly catch on. At Mulberry, "y'all" also stands for “Young Adults Living Love.” It is our firm opinion that the apostrophe here is entirely more significant than it gets credit for. After all, you're in a season of life for now as “young” adults, but you'll always be part of the larger “all” at Mulberry. Come see us, y'all. The young adult Y'ALL study occurs every month on the first Friday from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm beginning November 5, 2021.
