Weekly Wednesday Church Nights are held September-April and are a chance for all ages to gather and select from the following: 5:30pm - an informal, brief Eucharist in church, guitar music 6:00pm - provided healthy, homemade meal 6:15pm - Choir Rehearsal 6:30pm - Formation 2x a month, GIFT 1x a month 7:40pm - Bell Choir Rehearsal
The 6:30 pm program includes Christian formation for children in preschool grade through confirmation. Character Club is a new program for prek-3rd grade with fun activities based on a different core value each month. 4th-Confirmation age will have formation groups also. There will be a speaker or program for adults.
Church Nights will meet three times per month. Two Wednesdays the children/youth will be in their age specific program, one Wednesday we will be together for GIFT; Growing in Faith Together, and we will have one Wednesday where we don’t gather at church, instead that time can be used for focusing on faith at home.
February Church Nights:
February 7 – Have you ever wondered why we do the things we do and say the things we say during the eucharist? Bill Van Oss will be doing an Instructed Eucharist in church. Each part of the liturgy will be discussed and this will be a great opportunity to bring your questions.
February 14 – We begin the season of Lent with Ash Wednesday. Services are at noon and 5:30 pm. There is no other church night programming this evening.
February 21 – Church Night is OFF for winter break. This would be a great opportunity to do “Faith at Home” using suggestions that can be found at: stpaulsfaithformation.org
February 28 - We will explore the formative impact of church architecture in a creative way. You will be invited to draw the floorplan and features of the church you grew up in and have the opportunity to share that with the group. The goal is to highlight the importance of architecture on faith formation.
