Angel Tree

 

Since 2006, we have been serving and supporting our Methodist brothers and sisters in Christ in Piedras Negras, Mexico. Help us bless the children of Piedras Negras by adopting an angel from one of our Angel Trees located in the atrium and the children’s wing, beginning November 21.  There is a $10-$12 limit for each gift. You can drop the unwrapped gifts off in the atrium/front desk area anytime before December 11.

 

Thank you for blessing a child this Christmas!

Children's Ministries

KidCheck is a secure children's check-in system that enhances AHUMC's security system and simplifies the check-in process. KidCheck helps ensure no one can pick up your child without your consent.

Children's Ministries requires ALL children—nursery through 5th grades—to check-in through KidCheck. It is important you create your account before you arrive to church. Go to go.kidcheck.com, select "Create Your KidCheck Account" and follow the on-screen prompts. You can also download the KidCheck Mobile Check-In App to create, manage, & update your account right on your phone. 


Be a part of one of our Teaching Teams!

Would you like to be a part of one of our Teaching Teams? Our goal is to have teams of at least 6, so that leaders are able to teach as often as they want but also have the flexibility to teach once a month if that works better for your family. Please let us know if you have questions about being a part of a Teaching Team!


 

The AHUMC and Rio Texas Conference have partnered with Safe Gatherings to screen and train volunteers who work with the ministries who serve our children, youth, and vulnerable adults. Both the background checks and trainings are thorough and include best practices to keep our kids and vulnerable adults safe.
