On behalf of Pastor Derek Porter, myself, and the wonderful staff at Smyrna First United Methodist Church, we welcome you to a new year at the Preschool. We want you to know that we have been praying for you as we, ourselves, have been preparing for your coming and return. Right up front we want to say, "Thank you for trusting us with your children and your child's development. It is an HONOR!"
Jesus placed a special emphasis on children, noting that we all must become like them in order to experience faith fully. Here at Smyrna First UMC, we continue that emphasis—nurturing growth, relationships, and most of all, faith.
I hope you know that your children are in the best of hands. Each of our staff and faculty are motivated to provide the best of care and education for your kids. Part of that education and its success is your involvement and we encourage you to take advantage of the different opportunities there are that celebrate and encourage your child’s growth.
Pastor Derek and I want you to know that we are here for you. Our doors are open for whatever needs you may have. Many of you are members of other churches, but we still consider YOU one of our own. We want you to take advantage of the resources we have to offer right here, whether those resources are educational or spiritual.
Again, welcome to Smyrna First UMC Preschool!
In Joyful Obedience,
Pastor Whit Martin
