FUMCCV Coronavirus Public Health Update

Online worship only until further notice

In response to the Corona Virus pandemic the San Diego Department of Public Health issued orders to cancel all events with more than 250 people and all smaller events that cannot assure a 6 foot distance between each person.  The department noted, “The timely implementation of aggressive strategies that create social distance and those that reduce close contact of people not regularly together, including limiting gatherings, has proven effective in prior pandemics at delaying the rates of transmission and reducing illness and death.”

This is not ideal, but we will make the best of it.  Please stay tuned to the website as we will be updating it often, as well as producing multiple resources for your spiritual growth during these difficult times (prayer services, music resources, children’s messages, youth meet ups, Bible studies, etc.).    
In this strange time of social distancing remember the words of Paul, spoken when he was distanced from the Philippians, “I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for you.”  Philippians 1:3.  May we do that for one another during this times apart.

PHILOSOPHY We recognize the need for children to feel wanted and recognized; therefore, we believe one of the best ways children learn best is by establishing and building trust. We value the importance of learning and take pride in our teachers as they customize curriculum based on what the children are actively exploring and what interests them. We recognize each child learns differently and we encourage the children to do so. We also find value in that children learn best through daily interactions within their environment. In believing this, we strive to help children develop healthy attitudes towards themselves and others so that they may be functioning citizens in their society.
Because we are a program that is passionate about helping all individuals reach their full potential, we understand the importance of acceptance. Our educators lead a Christian living example by providing love, trust, safety, encouragement, and comfort that all children need daily.
MISSION STATEMENT: To encourage and support the success and well-being of children, families, and the child care community. We will provide opportunities for social-emotional interactions, foster cognitive growth, and physical development.
