MIDWEEK COMMUNITY AND SPIRITUAL GROWTH
Our normal schedule of Wednesday activities resumed on August 16. Please join us for dinner (adults $6, children $3), adult Bible Study or small group and Music and Missions for children.
Dinner will be served from 5 to 6pm each Wednesday. This new schedule will allow early arrivers as well as those coming in right at 6pm to get a delicious meal.
We are offering several small group options for adults this year:
Women’s Life Group | 6–7pm | Conference Room
Are you longing for spiritual friendship? Do you want to be more intentional in your walk with the Lord? Have you often wondered how other women pursue Christ? Do you want to be mentored or want to mentor, but don't know where to start? Come join us for a chapter by chapter study of Mark, where we read the text together and talk about what God is teaching us. This group will focus on intentional community building and disciple-making. We'll partner to pray for one another and work to build mutual mentoring relationships! Note: We will not meet during the Share His Joy series.
Adult Bible Study | 6–6:45pm | Heritage Hall
Each week we will offer an intergenerational, co-ed Bible study in Heritage Hall. These three to six week studies will be led by one of our ministers.
Men’s Basketball | 5:30–7:30pm | CLC
The men of the church are invited to play basketball each Wednesday evening in the Christian Life Center. This is a great opportunity to get to know other men of the church. If you can’t make it right at 5:30pm, come when you can and join in one of the pick-up games at any point. All skill levels are welcome.
Sanctuary Choir Rehearsal | 7–8pm | Choir Suite (2nd Floor)
The Sanctuary Choir is just now beginning work on our music for Christmas. Our choir is a wonderful group of dedicated volunteers who sing for God’s glory. While it is not necessary to be able to read music to be in the choir, having a good ear and pitch matching skills are a great help. We invite you to come and sing with us. You will enjoy the beautiful music, good rehearsal work, and the family atmosphere that we share together as we close each week in prayer together. Come join us!
Childcare | 6:00 – 6:45pm | Room 255
Childcare is available for children under 2 years of age from 6:00-6:45pm.
Missions Education | 5:30 – 6:15pm
Our missions education program helps children learn about the importance of being a part of God’s work of making Jesus Christ known in the world. The theme for this year is “My Life.” Children will learn that they can be a missionary wherever God puts them. Whether it is at home, school, on the sports field or at dance, God can use them to tell others about Jesus. Following missions education, children will go to their children’s choir program. You will drop your child off in the room listed for mission friends, RAs or GAs and pick them up in the room listed for their respective children’s choir.

Children’s Choir Rehearsals | 6:15 – 7pm
A good children’s music training program is essential to good church music of any style in later years. We are fortunate to have a talented team of leaders and helpers to work with our children to teach them the importance of using their voices to give God the praise and glory He deserves. From the earliest class of 3’s to the 6th grade, we take the time to teach music reading skills, play musical games together, and learn music to present as part of God’s worship several times throughout the year. Involve your child in this important ministry and help him/her discover a singing voice that can praise the Lord at all times and in all places!
