Welcome Visitors and Guests! We are glad you are here! There are a few things we would like you to know about Sunday mornings at Tomoka United Methodist Church: ● If you are a first time visitor, we have a gift we would like to give you—no strings attached! It’s our way of saying thank you for making the choice to try us! You can see one of the ushers who took up the collection or the pastor after the service for your gift! ● If you have an infant or toddler (birth-age 5) and would like to use our Nursery, it is located in the Education Wing (straight back through the Sanctuary on the right-hand side) and is available during Sunday School (9:15 a.m.) and the 10:30 a.m. service. ● If you have a Preschool or Elementary student (K-5th grade), after the Children’s Moment the kids exit the Sanctuary to attend Children’s Church in the Education Wing. Yours are more than welcome to attend with the rest of the children. ● If you do not have a church home, please know that you are always welcome at Tomoka UMC. To unite with Tomoka UMC, simply mark “Wish to Join” on the Registration Pad, or speak to the pastor. We’d love to welcome you into the family!
