ReachOut is a ministry created for first through eighth grade children, and is a combined ministry of four downtown United Methodist Maysville churches: Central UMC, Scott UMC, Seddon UMC and Trinity UMC.


ReachOut meets weekly during the school year, and provides countless opportunities for children to explore faith, friendship, and helping others. Special events and opportunities to invite new friends include skating activities, bowling, Russell Theater night, and the youth Christmas play at the Opera Theatre. Periodically, trips are made to Ruggles Camp for daytime activities. These visits are very productive, as a large number of ReachOut youth have the opportunity to participate in Ruggles marketplace, junior high camp, and senior high camp. ReachOut youth have their own nursing home visitation ministry. Visits are scheduled throughout the fall and spring semesters, where the children bring a smile and joy into the building with their stories, prayers, scriptures, songs, and gifts. Youth involved also have opportunities to share with other churches, and have been invited to participate in Christmas plays, reunions, and other special events.

ReachOut meets every Thursday night from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm throughout the school year. All first through eighth grade children are invited to attend! For more information, please contact John Denham at: (606) 407-3827, Lori Throckmorton at: (606) 301-1794 or Marcia Toncray at: (606) 584-1775.
