This week's theme is Hope--The First Sunday of Advent.
The scripture is Jeremiah.
This week: Rev. Darren Cowdrey, the interim director of Young People's Ministry and Camping and Retreats, welcomes and encourages the children and shares a special message; Mort recalls hope in 2020…do you remember last year? What do you hope for? Watch to the very, very end and you’ll see what Mort says "nope" to!

Children's Worship is a free innovative online worship experience for children everywhere. The production is a collaborative effort sponsored by the United Methodist Churches of the Sacramento Pentecost and Resurrection Circuits. The 15-20 minutes includes music, faith-based messages and special friends to meet--including a puppet called “Mort” ... video clips come from around our church family in Northern California and Nevada.
The series started May 31, 2020 at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and stopped at the end of July 2021 (after 61 episodes) BUT due to the increase in Delta-variant cases, has started again for those children who cannot attend in-person church yet as well as for everyone else--young and old! Video contributions and monetary donations are welcome! If your church (or you) is willing to donate to this ministry, please send a check to First UMC, 2100 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95816 payable to First UMC, memo line: “Children’s Worship”.
