What is “Midweek Miracle”?“Midweek Miracle” is the name First UMC Krum has given to its GenOn ministry. We have limited our enrollment for the fall of 2011 to forty children so that we can give them the best experience possible of the lived love of God. Enrollment is full as of September 16, 2001. However, if you would like to fill out a registration form, we will maintain a waiting list for the first few weeks of the program.
What is GenOn?
GenON combines youthful fun and a focus on Christ every Wednesday for young people in grades 1 through 12. It is tried and true – used in churches around the world. At Krum United Methodist, it is a time for youth and adults to join together, learning about the Christian faith. Dozens of adult volunteers give their time to lead play, teach, nurture and care for the youth who come to LOGOS. In GenON, we celebrate positive relationships through the model of Jesus Christ.
What does GenOn mean?
|GENON MINISTRIES lifts up the significance of one generation passing faith on to the next generation. The keystone ministry is the LOGOS weekly experience. Through translation, the Latin term LOGOS describes "WORD." It's the way God has been shown to us specifically as JESUS CHRIST (John 1:1-18).|
The Four Parts
Each week LOGOS students join in four parts of the LOGOS program. That includes:
This part of the program helps students learn about Christ's love through discussion, lessons and outside relationships with others. We study the Bible with the help of dedicated teachers who seek to spiritually challenge and enlighten all students at their own age levels.
We teach youth that they are important to GOD and encourage them to get involved in worship. From time to time, LOGOS students offer music or other gifts to the congregation.
One of the key elements of LOGOS is FUN. Games and activities are part of each week's visit, and all are safe and noncompetitive. There's always something crazy or crafty going on during rec!
Dinner is served! Each week we share a family-style meal. Youth are invited to share important events in their lives with their peers and adult table parents. The meal is prepared by wonderful kitchen volunteers and is followed by games.
Who can be involved?
|The program enrolls youth in grades 1-12 but relies upon many volunteers. Nursery care is provided for young children while their parents volunteer. And many adults without children in the program are involved. |
Something to think about…
As compared to just a generation ago:
- The number of preschoolers living with a single divorced parent has soared
- Eight out of ten young people believe they will not live out a normal lifetime
- Suicide among youth under 15 is on the rise
- Reaching youth and nurturing them into discipleship is among the most urgent tasks of the church today.
