Ministry

Family Ministry -Sunday, October 2

It’s a new month and we have a new memory verse: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord.” That’s from Jeremiah and it means that our future is bright, thanks to God. Wanna know more? OK!

LET’S GOOOOO! »

Join a walk with church friends to raise funds for Ukrainian relief efforts while enjoying the beauty of Algonkian Regional Park along the banks of the mighty Potomac River.

We’ve all witnessed the devastating effects of Russia’s needless war against the Ukrainian people. When you register for the Galilee Church Walk for Ukraine, we’ll ask you to make a donation to UMCOR which we’ll earmark for Ukrainian relief efforts.

There will be multiple trails to choose from that vary in length and difficulty, so walkers of all fitness levels are encouraged to come. Plus there will be a scavenger hunt along the way for the young and young at heart. Upon completion of our walking circuits, fall refreshments will be served and children are invited to carve a pumpkin and hear the story of “The Pumpkin Patch Parable.”

Please visit galileeumc.org/events for more information. Hope to see you all there! 

We worship in person at 10am every Sunday and worship includes in-person Children’s Church! 
 
At Children’s Church, kids learn that God made them and how much God loves them, through stories that create a growing understanding of the Bible. We do Children’s Church in the gym, where we have room for fun crafts, games, and activities to get the youngest believers moving AND thinking! 
 
In addition Sunday worship, each week we offer at home activities for kids and families that you can do with your little ones to delve into the week’s Bible message.

Vacation Bible School

We welcomed 60 children to Galilee’s “Food Truck Party” VBS in July. Thank you to those of you who are volunteered as Station Leaders or Crew Leaders, you helped give all of the children a meaningful and fun experience to associate forever with church.

We also celebrated with a REAL Food Truck Party on Friday, July 15. It was a bit hot and the lines were long, but that just gave us the opportunity to spend time together at tables under the shade of our tents or watch the kids play at our playground. Thanks to our delicious providers, BomBurger Food Truck and Hershey’s Mobile Ice Cream Truck! If you were with us, we hope you had fun and made some new friends.
