This week is the final week in the 63 week series of online Children’s Worship services. JB Brayfindley greets viewers with a special message; Rev. Motoe Yamada-Foor of Sacramento Japanese UMC welcomes and blesses the children; St. Mark’s Jim and Jean Strathdee share “Dance With the Spirit”; Lodi UMC’s Snappy the Crab falls asleep; Sacramento First UMC’s Amelia, the chicken, has a cameo; Marge Shunk of St. Mark’s UMC share a special message; Mort writes a song for all the kids as a goodbye treat–and shares a secret.


Thank you to everyone watching and supporting this ministry over the last 63 weeks.


Children’s Worship was a free innovative online worship experience for children everywhere. The production was a collaborative effort sponsored by the United Methodist Churches of the Sacramento Pentecost Circuit. The 15-20 minutes included music, faith-based messages and special friends to meet–including talking animals and a puppet called “Mort” … video clips come from around our church family in Northern California and Nevada. The series started May 31, 2020 and ends today, July 25, 2021. Register and receive upcoming seasonal videos by Mort sent directly to your email: If your church (or you) is willing to donate to this type of ministry in the future, please send a check to First UMC, 2100 J Street, Sacramento, CA 95816 payable to First UMC, memo line: “Children’s Worship Ministry”.
