September 12 – SPIRIT Night returns with “Messy Church”!
Wednesday nights for the new school year are starting with Messy Church on September 12. Messy Church is an exciting and creative worship experience for all ages. Come for a meal, fellowship, and celebration of God through Bible stories, music, prayer, and engaging hands-on activities. The theme of our first Messy Church session is “God’s Family, Our Family.” Hands-on activities will include making cards, printing stars, and making star mobiles. Messy Church will start with dinner at 5:30 p.m. and go a couple of hours. Messy Church is for everyone! Come and be a part of this unique worship experience!
SPIRIT night is our Wednesday night programming for families and children, and those who join us for supper. SPIRIT stands for Sharing, Playing, Igniting, Relating, Inviting, and Teaching. The evening starts with a low-cost meal at 5:30pm, and then activities are provided for youth from 6:00-7:30pm. Activities include music, crafts, games, and community outreach. Youth in 3rd grade and up also have the opportunity to participate in the Tone Chimes Choir on some SPIRIT Wednesdays from 6—6:30pm.
