Thank you for your help and support.  We are looking forward to this fun-filled Biblical Day Camp for the children of the Crete  community!

this is NOT a school- sponsored activity, but is sponsored by Crete United Methodist Church. 

Vacation Bible School provides an opportunity for children to learn, study, memorize and the Bible that will last forever! 

The greatest blessing for children participating in Vacation Bible School is that they are learning the Bible.  The prophet Isaiah writes, “The grass withers, and the flower fades, but the Word of our God remains forever.” (Isaiah 40:8)

Crete UMC Worship Services are scheduled to resume on Sunday,

August 16th.


Our first priority remains keeping one another safe. We care deeply for you, and remain committed to doing all we can for each other’s safety and health. To that end, I’m offering a word of caution, that the August 16th date should be treated as preliminary. We will keep assessing the situation as time marches on and will inform you immediately should any changes be made to this schedule.

The in-person ministries of the church will also resume on August 16, 2020. Our Boy Scouts and support groups will be able to meet in the church, following CDC guidelines. However, our Before and After School Program and Enduring Strings Program will be closed until further notice.

New in-Person Worship times beginning August 16th are

Sundays at 10:00 a.m.
