The Children’s Outreach Ministries encompass the Early Education and School Age Programs. These programs operate as non-profit programs through Forrest Burdette Memorial United Methodist Church under the direct governance of the Children’s Outreach Ministries Board of Directors.

The Children’s Outreach Ministries programs are licensed by the State of West Virginia, meeting the health and safety standards as required by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Services and the State Licensing Board. Our licensing capacity is for 155 children. We have liability insurance through a local agency. The Children Outreach Ministries does not provide medical coverage.

This facility is operated on a non-discriminatory basis, and the practice of this policy is demonstrated through equal treatment in regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, and age or marital status of parents.

Depending on the particular situation, it may be referred to the Children’s Outreach Ministries Board of Directors.

He Leadeth Me! Invitation To Stewardship for 2018

Stewardship is about being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts we receive from God. The tradition of giving back to God and to the church comes from the Biblical practice of “tithing,” which means to give back a tenth of our earnings to God (Numbers 18:26). The Church sees stewardship as more than simply contributing money to the church; it’s also about contributing time and talents, and volunteering for ministry and mission. It’s about reaching out to build relationships from a perspective of abundance instead of scarcity.

Are you ready to make a loving commitment to your church? Please fill out the form below to take that next step as a church member and show your love and commitment to God and your fellow church members by becoming a responsible steward of Forrest Burdette Memorial United Methodist Church.
