Wednesday Night LIVE 6:15 pm

Wednesday, January 31ST children's/youth/Adult Bible study activities NEW TIME: 6:15pm-7:15pm! This includes Nursery, Preschool and Elementary age.

Elementary students will meet in the GYM for our series “Lights, Camera, Action!”. Kids are learning how to pull Biblical truths out of any movie and apply them to their lives. Topics covered in the series will include: jealousy, integrity, friendship, persistence, and encouragement. We are watching movie clips from classic kids movies each week. Kids will have fun learning with games, movie/lesson, and group discussion. VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! We need at least one additional volunteer to assist the next few Wednesday nights. You can pick a night at this link:

Our focus Wednesday is FRIENDSHIP, a story about Jonathan (King Saul's son) and David. Our movie clip comes from CARS. Kids will learn we should not be selfish, instead we put others before ourselves.

Preschoolers: Preschoolers will enjoy our Bible focus on Noah, an art activity, music, and center play.
