Pray for Me
We are so excited to connect the generations through the Pray For Me Campaign! The Pray for Me Campaign (PFMC) connects adult Prayer Partners with a child or student, or a family with multiple children, through prayer. Prayer Partners will use a provided-for-you prayer guide that helps to pray specifically for seven things in the life of each prayer recipient: widom, favor, speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity. (Sound familiar? These are character traits based on Luke 2:52 and 1 Tim 4:12.)
Wednesday Night Connect
Wednesday Night Programming
When Awana and youth group are meeting, there is a community meal for anyone who cares to participate. The meal begins at 5:45 in the Fellowship Hall. Suggested donation for the meal is $3 for adults and $2 for small children to help cover the costs. An amazing volunteer team leads the effort to make delicious food most weeks, and we occasionally cater in pizza or sandwiches as well. (And here’s a little tip: you don’t even have to come to other Wednesday night program to come share a meal with us!)
Please note: Children grade 4 and below should be accompanied by an adult during the meal – please do not drop children off at this time. Thank you!
Awana Clubs serve kids from age 3 through 6th grade. They break into smaller sub-groups by age (Cubbies, Sparks, and T&T clubs) and enjoy game time, Bible story time, verse memorization, and more. Awana runs from 6:25-8:00. A parent or other adult must check-in and pick up children on these nights.
For questions or registration information about Awana, contact our Awana Commander, Amy Bowers.
Youth group is for students grades 7-12. On Wednesday nights, students will experience age-specific Bible teaching, fun games, grade-specific small group discussions, and lots more. The youth have hang out time from 6:15-6:40 in the gym and begin programming at 6:45 in the youth room. No pre-registration is required, and students do not need a parent to check them in or out.
For questions, please contact our Youth Pastor, John Chaco.
Worship Chorale gathers singers grade 9-adults who want to help lead worship through music. You do not need to have any formal musical background or training to join from 6:30-8:15 p.m., September through May.
Childcare is provided on Wednesday night to serve those who are volunteering in some capacity. If you are serving in Awana, youth ministry, or singing in the Worship Chorale and you are in need of childcare on Wednesday evening.
*If a family is utilizing childcare, it is necessary that a parent is in the building. Therefore, we are not able to provide childcare for anyone who is not currently serving on a weekly basis. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Just think how many memories you can make that help your child focus on Jesus! We hope you can check it out.
