Applications for the 2019-2020 school year are now being accepted.
Applications are due May 26, 2019.
We can't wait to receive your application and have you join the 4:10ers program next year!
The 4:10ers is an exciting Student Leadership and Volunteer Program where students (grades 7-12) can become leaders by growing, serving, and connecting with others at Floris UMC and in our local community. We are looking for middle and high school students who want to have fun, learn leadership skills, develop a heart for others, and be engaged in the life of our church.
Here's what current 4:10ers say about the program:
"The ability to form a connection with both the kids and the teachers is amazing." Tyler Aukema
"It was really fun and it was cool to learn about the kids and God. The adults really mentored me and helped me a lot with public speaking and teaching." Will Aukema
"My favorite parts are seeing the kids have a good time and it makes me feel good to be helping." Ryan Burke
"I really like interacting with the children and helping them deepen their relationships with God. I also enjoy serving the church because I feel that is an important thing to do." Bridget Dombro
"I love interacting with the kids. I was especially touched when one gave me a drawing. I like helping kids get along, and playing during free time. I have 2 siblings and being a 4:10er has given me the opportunity to be a good role model and big sister. I love every minute of helping them learn to love Christ as I do." Savannah Motz
