We kicked off our programming on September 13 with a Night of Introductions and a Men-in-Ministry meal. This fall we changed the format of Wednesday nights. Based on feedback throughout the year and especially from our leadership retreat, we have decided to reshape Wednesday nights to focus on growing as disciples. Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. To live out this mission Wednesday nights need to focus not only on fun but also our growth as disciples. Therefore, we will have monthly fellowship meals and classes.
Monthly fellowship meals will begin at 5:30pm. In order to focus on our growth, we will follow FAN principles and have some healthy options each month. We will also have activities for everyone. We hope that these meals will be an intergeneration opportunity for everyone to grow in how we take care of ourselves and relate to one another.
If you want to eat every Wednesday with your friends, we encourage you to invite some friends to your home or find a restaurant and enjoy a fellowship meal together. We are currently working on a list of restaurants that will give discounts on Wednesday in exchange for your Sunday bulletin.
Between the monthly fellowship meals, we will focus on our growth as disciples by studying together and building a supportive community. We will gather for classes at 6:30pm. The middle school students in confirmation will be diving deep into what we believe, how we are shaped by our tradition, what it means to be part of a faith community and tradition, why and what we do in worship. For lifelong adult learners, Pastor Scarlett and some of our lay servants will lead classes that cover worship (arts, architecture, meanings of words, and the liturgical year), Methodism, Acts of Piety and Acts of Mercy (how we relate to God and to others), and an Advent Study.
Reservations for meals are required. Make your reservation online (below), on the sign up sheet at church, or by contacting the church office by noon on Monday.
Please join us on Wednesday nights as we grow closer to God and one another.
