Wonderful Wednesdays – join us for fellowship time and children’s choir on Wednesday evenings.  Our Cherub group is for children in Kindergarten through 2nd grade and our Wesley group is for children in 3rd through 5th grade.  During fellowship time, we explore different stories from the Bible and enjoy snacks, games, and crafts.  It is a great time to invite a friend.  Children are welcome to join at any time. Our focus this semester will be stories from the Old Testament. Our schedule for this school year is:

  • 5:15-6:00 meal for everyone
  • 5:45-6:15 Cherub (grades K-2) Choir; Wesley (grades 3-5) Fellowship
  • 6:15-6:45 Cherub Fellowship; Wesley Choir
