CHILD PROTECTION POLICY Huron United Methodist Church is committed to protecting your child from any form of accident or abuse. A task force has worked through the United Methodist Child Protection Policy Manual. Background checks are done for our adults working with children and youth. The Trustees have installed electrical outlet covers and windows in all classroom doors. Other policies and procedures have been adopted, such as classroom sign-in/sign-out sheets.
The Huron UMC youth program is divided into several different groups based on the age of the children involved. Our programs are designed with the children’s age group in mind. More information about any of our programs is available through the church office (419) 433-3984 — firstname.lastname@example.orgLOGOS LOGOS is an exciting student program including study, worship, and play/activity program for children and youth. The group meets Wednesday afternoons and evenings starting immediately after school with transportation provided from Shawnee and Woodlands to the church. Family Worship time begins at 5:30. Dinner is included at every session, and each week has a special theme. The program is co-directed by Courtney & Tommy Williams. Semester fees are $35.00 for each child. Involvement of at least one parent is encouraged, and teens may be on Worship Team, help lead children’s activities, or assist in the kitchen while earning community service hours.

A snack is included at every meeting. In addition to the weekly meetings, service projects, field trips, worship and prayer, singing, retreats, and fun activities such as skiing and paint-balling are scheduled throughout the year.

The group is led by our staff Youth Director, Beth Hanson. They also meet at 9:00 Sunday mornings for Sunday School.
