About Transit

Transit is a ministry specifically designed for 5th and 6th graders at Chapin UMC. We seek to help students encounter Jesus and move them towards spiritual growth in their relationship with Him through connecting with the church, pursuing God, and engaging the world. We offer Sunday morning teaching time, Fun Friday Events, Mission Trips, and Retreats. For more information about Transit, contact Emily Wheaton at 803.345.2801 or emily@chapinumc.com.

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12

Transit Sunday School

Transit meets every Sunday morning from 10:10-11:00 am for Sunday School. We use the 252 Kids curriculum from Orange designed specifically for preteens.

What does 252 represent? It’s not a street address or the number of questions a kid can ask in 20 minutes. Instead, everything we teach in 252 Kids is based on one of the three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52…

  • I need to make the wise choice.
  • I can trust God no matter what.
  • I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

252 Kids is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. 

Location: Fellowship Hall Basement

Time: 10:10-11am Sunday Mornings

We love when parents jump in and help serve in any of our family ministries. If you would like to serve with our Wave, Transit or Fusion ministries please sign up by following the links below.
