Cotillion/Beautillion has been postponed until further notice.

St. Matthew United Methodist Church will be hosting a youth program “You Are A Shining Star!”.  Our goal for this program is to provide an opportunity to introduce youth ages 3-14 to areas of arts & crafts, etiquette, social manners, bullying, finance and dance.

At the end of the program, a Cotillion/Beautillion Ball will be held on Saturday, March 28th at 3:00 p.m. to showcase what has been taught to the youth. Tickets are $10.00 for persons 4 years and older. Three years and under are free.

The purpose of the program is to promote high self-esteem and standards, strong morals and values, continuous education, refined social skills, respect, community service, and friendships ..

Parent/Guardian/Participant sessions will be held the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. until Noon. The first session will be held on Saturday, July 13, 2019. For more information and to sign up, please attend a Parent/Guardian meeting on Sunday, June 30th at 1:00 p.m., following our 11:00 a.m. Youth Sunday worship service (please join us).
