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.

Transit meets weekly on Sundays at 10:10am

in the Room 116.
