MUMC plans to host a Freedom School in the summer of 2020.  We hope to welcome thirty children (kindergarten through third grade) from our community to this 6 week (Monday through Friday) full day literacy camp. Each morning the children will continue to develop their literacy skills with a positive, high energy curriculum designed by the Children’s Defense Fund. In the afternoon they will have time for fun and enriching activities, including field trips. While we don’t have all the details about ways you can serve, there is a need for folks from the congregation and the community to work with the children by serving breakfast and lunch, assisting the children during afternoon activities, leading afternoon activities, and/ or chaperoning on field trips.  All volunteers will be provided with training necessary for Safe Sanctuaries Certification. The camp dates are June 15 through July 24.  If you are willing to set aside all or part of one or more weeks or one day each week for 6 weeks to assist with Freedom School 2020, please contact Steve Wall-Smith ( You will be kept in the loop as more information becomes available.
