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

“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

We believe that the job of discipling our children and partnering with parents is one of the most important things we can do. We also recognize that this is a team effort. 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.
