Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Jennings United Methodist Church is our mission to go out and make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Here at the Jennings United Methodist Church we are warm, loving, and accepting community of believers who strive to serve others in the example of Christ through Worship, instruction and loving outreach.


Outreach Ministries

 Jennings United Methodist Church Outreach Ministries is a very important ministry of this church. We collect donations every month on the altar rail for Communion to give to certain outreach  projects. Just to inform you of some of those certain projects we are involved with helping with the Wesley Foundation @ McNeese State University, Wounded Warrior program, Hands Together Ministry (which helps the Reynosa Medical Clinic in Mexico), our own youth program. The Outreach Committee also helps with projects that come up through the year whether it be through the conference our through our own committee.


Choir

 The Jennings United Methodist Chancel Choir is an integral part of the Worship experience. Members meet at 5:30on Thursday evenings to rehearse music for Worship services. The choir provides an anthem, special music, during the offertory each week. On communion Sundays, the choir often sings a special piece of music while the congregation receives the elements. Each Christmas and most Easters, the choir prepares a special presentation (Cantata) for one Worship service during those seasons. These Cantata’s are a beautiful way for our members to be able to present the Word of God through music and narration.


Ushers

The usher team at Jennings United Methodist Church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men whose ministry is integral to church life.


Youth Ministries

 Youth programs at the Jennings United Methodist Church plays a very important role of keeping our youth of our church involved with learning more about how to become disciples of Jesus Christ. We take our youth on retreats, summer trips, mission trips, where they can be involved with the community and learn how to grow into young men and women who will live their life for Christ. We have a youth program (6th-12th grade) that meets on Sunday evenings from 4:30-6:00pm. Sunday School for the youth is on Sunday mornings at 9:30am in the youth room. We are starting a new study on the book of John. 
 


United Methodist Women

The Jennings United Methodist Women meet once a month on the second Thursday of the month at 11:30am. They usually have a light lunch before their meeting, they are involved with many projects through the District and through the community such as providing lunch to the students at the Wesley Foundation @ McNeese University, visiting the Children’s Home in Sulphur, collecting items to send to troops, and many other projects for our church.

 

Junior Choir

The Jennings United Methodist Church as a newly formed and active children’s choir. The children rehearse ever Wednesday evening at 5:00pm. Through participation in the choir, children have an opportunity to be active participants in contributing to the Worship service. The children prepare a special song to share each month on the first Sunday during the 10:30am Worship service. Our children’s choir also prepares special programs for services during Advent and Lent as well as programs for the Children’s Sabbath Sunday.

 

Vacation Bible School

Each summer, Jennings United Methodist Church hosts a Vacation Bible School. The week-long event involves games, great food, good teachings on the bible so children will learn more about Jesus. Vacation Bible School is usually held in June every summer in the evening from 5pm-8pm which requires many volunteers and everyone that volunteers to serve in this wonderful ministry walks away blessed for having served!
