Family Programs and Events

Our focus is to provide family-friendly events throughout the year that focus on family time and welcoming community friends.  Anyone of any age is welcome to join us, but our focus is for children from toddlers on up.  Most events require a small group of wonderful volunteers along with lots of participation from PCHUM families and our outside community. Please consider joining us this year for our upcoming events.

Mom-2-Mom Sale, Saturday, March 11th, 9am-Noon
Portage Chapel Hill UMC will be hosting our Spring Mom 2 Mom Sale on Saturday March 11th from 9:00am-12:00pm.  Admission cost is only $1.00 per person (kids free) or a donation of a non perishable food item.  Come & shop our 25 tables (already sold out) or if you need larger items, we offer a large items room for strollers, pack n plays, high chairs, etc.  There will be lots of good deals, so you don't want to miss out!  Don't know what a mom 2 mom sale is....We rent tables ($15.00 each that help fund our Children's Ministry programs) for "moms" to sell their used children's (infant-teenager) clothes, toys, maternity, etc.  All sales go directly to the "mom" that rents the table.  We offer a large item room (staffed by wonderful volunteers) for "moms" to sell their larger items, like highchairs, stroller, pack n plays, infant bath sets, outdoor toys, floor activity pads, bikes, play houses and much more.  We collect a minimal admission fee for entrance into our sale that also goes directly to our children's ministry programs or food items are donated to our very own food pantry.  It's a wonderful event that is growing not only within our church, but in surrounding areas & beyond.  Still not sure....come check us out! 

Please pass our sale information along to your family, friends & neighbors!  Our last spring sale had over 300 shoppers & we want it to grow even more this year!!  Interested in renting a table?  We would be happy to add you to our wait list, as our sale is sold out at this point.  Our "moms" love us!  They typically reserve a spot before the on going sale is done.  We strive to accommodate everyone, warmly welcome & offer the hospitality that no one offers quite like PCHUM.  We hope to see you at the sale!

Please join us in Fellowship Hall for a fun easter egg hunt for all ages.  

Trunk or Treat / Thank you
If you participated or came to enjoy the Trunk or Treat event you know how much our event grew this year!  We typically have 100 kids attend, this year we had OVER 500 KIDS!!!!  We were blown away by how well attended this event was this year.  We had 30 plus cars & an awesome haunted trailer this year, thank you church family!  Thank you to the people that made fast runs to local stores for more candy & to the stand up volunteer that cleaned up both parking lots of candy wrappers after the event.  It takes everyone to help make an event this size possible & we can now see how important our community outreach is to our area.  It is a pleasure to organize these family events & I feel blessed by everyone's help to make it possible.  Your Family Events Coordinator, Deanne Austin
