Sundays from 6-7 pm.

The Hands Up for God puppet troupe is for children in grades 3 through 6.  The group is directed by Melanie Ayers, Director of Children's Ministries.

The Hands Up for God Puppet Ministry has been a part of Herndon UMC for more than 7 years.  The kids learn to express God's word in the form of skits and songs performed with the help of their puppet friends.  Performances include two Wednesday night GIFT Dinners each year, Herndon UMC's Children's Worship on Christmas Eve, the UPWARD Basketball league Closing Celebration, just to name a few. 

This is a good activity for a seasonal commitment.  The practice and performance schedule allows kids to join in performances when they are able to commit to attending practices.  If you are interested, please contact Miss Melanie about the schedule to find a good time to join in.

Hands Up for God

Our puppeteers really enjoy this opportunity, which has led to the formation of the youth Out of the Darkness, black light puppet ministry.
