Please join us for our monthly dinner prior to our Wednesday night programs, typically the first Wednesday, September thru April. Our goal is to make it easier for people to come out on Wednesday nights by taking care of the cooking for you! We also hope it provides you a chance to get to know some more people and to connect those you might not see in your ABFs. Costs are covered by your donations. The next Fellowship Meal is October 11 from 5:30 - 6:30 pm.
Wednesday Night Series
Adults of all ages are welcome to attend our Wednesday programs, beginning at 7 pm. This fall we have two options, Confronting Loss begins on 9/13 and Raising Them Well begins on 9/20.
We all experience loss. Loss of a friendship, loss of a dream, loss of a loved one. Time and again we realize that we cannot control everything – and loss is part of life. The challenge is how to confront the inescapable losses of life – and grow in our faith?
This series is intended to help us think biblically about our own losses and equip us to give genuine encouragement to others. Our time will include video clips from varied biblical counselors, insights from scripture and personal interaction. Pastor Doug and Pastor Fred will be teaching. Sept. 13 – Nov. 15 (except 9/20 - Guest & 10/4 - NH Fair)
Raising Them Well
How do we equip our children well? What do they really need in their present life chapter? How do you seize the teachable moments of today? What does the next life chapter hold and how do you prepare them? Our first three sessions will be looking at the right questions and conversations for each stage of development. We’ll discuss how to integrate faith and life with a panel of parents. Our first step is to better understand the mind and needs of our children.
The second step is to spend the latter weeks talking about specific topics – such as how to intervene when your child is not thriving, work and money, managing technology and social media. We’ll add some additional topics based on your input. Sessions will be of varied format using parent panels and expertise from our church family. Moderators will be Brian Collison, Minister of Youth; Julie Myers, Directory of Children’s Ministry and Fred Raupp, Pastor of Family Ministries. Sept. 20 – Nov. 15 (except 10/4 - NH Fair)
Wednesday Night Clubs
Wednesday Night Clubs are a fun way to break up the week from September through April. We meet from 7:00-8:00 pm. Along with the engaging Bible lessons, we have games, incentives for verse memorization, and an opportunity to build relationships with other children. There is something for kids of all ages!
