"Wednesday Night Live" is our midweek ministry that has something for the whole family. We start out each Wednesday with a free community meal from 6:00-6:30pm. But stick around when the meal is over; that's when the fun continues! From 6:30-7:30pm, we split into three different age groups: elementary, youth, and adults for age-specific programming. Read on below for more information about these groups, then make a plan to join us on Wednesdays!
Wednesday Night Live begins January 17 and continues through May 15.
After our community dinner, our elementary-aged children (ages 4 through 5th grade) go to our Fellowship Hall downstairs for a time of lessons, crafts, and games.
Using a variety of curriculum resources, you can be sure that your child will have a great time learning timeless Bible lessons. On top of that, they will have a blast on crafts and other projects designed to reinforce the lesson, as well as games and activities meant to make Wednesday Night Live a staple of your week!
Your child will have all this fun alongside other children, forming friendships that can last a lifetime. And while they're downstairs, you can be right upstairs the whole time in your own time of fellowship and faith.
After dinner, our Youth Group (6th-12th grade) will meet downstairs in our Youth Room. In this time, they will have age-appropriate discipleship, fellowship, and fun.
Middle school and high school are important, but stressful, years. Schoolwork, relationships, life decisions, the list goes on. So at Wednesday Night Live, we give our Youth a place where they can just "be," where they can find friends, fellowship, and faith in a low-pressure setting. With authentic lessons and discussions, your teenager can discover faith for themselves on their own terms.
Wednesday Night Live is also the place where our Middle School Confirmation class will be held in the Fall, concurrently with our Youth Group.
When our community dinner finishes, our adults remain upstairs in our Choir Room for our own Bible study!
For the first few weeks, our adults will study Perfect Love, by Kevin Watson. This study explores one of the defining features of Methodism: our belief in Christian perfection, or "entire sanctification." This belief says that through God's grace, we can be made perfect in love in this life. This belief caught like wildfire and led to Methodism's expansion in its first generation before falling into obscurity. This study brings us back to our roots!
When Lent begins in February, we will study an original study by Pastor Michael on the Nicene Creed. This Creed, adopted in 325 AD, is the statement of faith accepted by all the denominations across the world. What it says about our faith will help us find transformation for our own faith today!
