HANDS HELD HIGH Puppet Ministry—Sharing the Love of God through the Arts
The FUMCC Puppet Ministry began in 1996 as a ministry for youth looking for a means to share their love of God through the arts. The founding ministry leadership team has returned and is committed to reviving the Puppet Ministry with the support of the entire congregation. The benefit of this method is that even in the natural transition which occurs as youth graduate and their parents transition into new areas of service we will have in place a long-term and sustainable ministry.
HANDS HELD HIGH will function with a small group character, providing participants the opportunity to grow in their faith, have fun and fellowship, as well as offer performances in the church and out into the community. All interested persons are invited—there are many different ways to help! The hope is for HANDS HELD HIGH to be an inclusive ministry stretching across generations to share the Word of God through the great variety of creative gifts and graces of God’s people. We especially hope that middle high and high school youth are willing to participate and share their talents!
