  Intentionally Intergenerational

Relationships should be at the heart of every church and relationships will help ensure children see value in long term involvement in a church body, be is SFUMC or another church in their future.    At SFUMC we intentionally plan events that will bring together our people of ALL ages and stages in life.  Click on the pictures below to take a peek at our most recent Intergenerational Events.
