MaTT Club did not meet in February due to my mother
’s sudden death and memorial service schedule. We will meet again on Sunday, March 3. That meeting will focus on Goodness - doing good for others. As part of that we are proposing a friendly competition between early service, late service and MaTT Club to
collect the most items, in March, for the food pantry. Watch for
Happy March birthday to Timothy, Lily, JooYoung, and Ashleigh.
Meet me at The Table (MaTT) Club is an exciting club, starting
this fall at Grace United Methodist Church, for children in Kindergarten through Fifth grade. We will meet on the first and third Sunday of each month from 4-6 P.M. MaTT Club is a place for kids and adults to gather with friends, old and new, at the table with Jesus. We invite Jesus to be with us at the supper table at each meeting.
I have been running a MaTT Club for ten years. I use a six
year curriculum rotationGod’s Big Family of Friends / The Bible: Our Book of Faith
Old Testament- Servants of God New Testament- Journey with Jesus (include baptism and communion)
Parables- Learning Through Stories; God is Like a…
Fruit of the Spirit- Living Healthy
Bridging (Missionary/starting new churches)
Because some of the children who have already been attending MaTT Club plan to meet with us at Grace, I will stay on the rotation schedule. This fall we will start Fruit of the Spirit- Living Healthy. After each meeting parents will receive an electronic ‘parent letter’ letting you know the story we heard, discussions we had and games we played. You are encouraged to talk to and question your child about what they learned and how they feel about it. MaTT Club loves volunteers. You can always offer to lead craft time, teach a lesson or lead games. Just let us know what you feel comfortable doing. Parents are asked to provide supper (no cooking needed), at least once during the year. Watch for more information!
