madison umc after school programMadison UMC’s Weekday Program offers a Preschool Program and an After School Program licensed by the state of Mississippi. The Weekday Ministries Programs have been charged with the mission “to provide total care for the children entrusted to the Madison UMC Preschool/After School Care (ASC) programs by meeting, to the fullest extent possible, our children’s physical, educational, and spiritual needs and to sensitively respond to the concerns of parents.” All our actions and daily classroom activities should reflect the Christian values of self-esteem, love faith, hope, care, grace, sharing, forgiveness, creation, honesty, obedience, and responsibility that are integral to the both the mission of Madison UMC and the Weekday Programs.

Mission Statement

The After School Care (ASC) program, as a ministry of Madison UMC, believes each child is a child of God and should have every opportunity to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially and spiritually to his or her fullest potential.
