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.
January Church Nights:
January 10 – As we begin the season of Epiphany, we remember that the Holy Family was forced to flee King Herod, becoming refugees in the land of Egypt (Mt. 2: 13-23). So, today, more than 21 million children, women, and men are forced to flee for their lives to escape persecution and violence. We will view the documentary film “Dying to Get In” This film provides an intimate perspective of border crossing and the people who cross.
January 17 – We will continue our conversation about immigrants and refugees with a presentation developed by Episcopal Migration Ministries. The goal is for you “to come away with a deeper understanding of Episcopal Migration Ministries, refugee resettlement, the stories of our new American neighbors, and how God is calling you into this work.” (EMM)
January 24 – Our G.I.F.T. (Growing in Faith Together) night will be games and activities to help all ages learn more about the Bible! “My Bible” is full of many wonderful resources to encourage you to delve deeper into the Bible. There are games, activities, dramas and intergenerational opportunities to learn about the authors of the books, the key characters and how the Bible speaks into our lives today.
January 31 – Fifth Wednesday Service Project. Check out the website or the Sunday bulletin for further details.
