Now that the kids are back in school, we are restarting one of our church’s most exciting programs: REACH Student Discipleship Ministry on Wednesday nights. (REACH is an acronym for Realizing Eternity’s Answers & Christ’s Hope.)
Our first REACH session is Wednesday, September 5. We’ll serve supper 6:30-6:55. At 7:00, everyone will gather in the auditorium for worship and a brief introduction. The students then separate into age-related groups for activities and lessons. We have groups for all ages including adults so bring the whole family.
Our Wednesday night student ministry currently uses a curriculum series called “What We Believe.”
Our typical schedule looks like this. We serve supper at 6:30 and begin activities at 7:00. The first thing on the agenda is age-appropriate worship followed by a “master teacher” who briefly introduces the lesson in a fun way each week. Students then divide into school-grade-based groups. First to exit, Pre-K-Grade 2 (Jefferson School students in JC) follow their teacher Carolyn Taylor to a well-equipped classroom on our lower level. Lincoln School students (grades 3-4) are lead by Marta Phillips to a classroom upstairs in our youth center. Washington Middle School students (grades 5-6) divide up by gender. Girls go with Janice Legendre and boys follow teacher Roger Legendre and his helpers. Teens (7th grade-high school) meet with Pastor Keith and his wife Sarah. Adults gather in the library with teacher Doug Hancock. There’s something for everyone. Come join us Wednesday night.
Death and Resurrection of the Messiah:
Bringing God’s Shalom to a World in Chaos
Sundays @ 6:00 pm
Fellowship supper following study
This ten-session Bible study, Death and Resurrection of the Messiah, from noted teacher and historian, Ray Vander Laan, is part of the series. In it, Vander Laan illustrates how Jesus’ call to follow him turned the world upside down, and learn how confronting evil can be loudly proclaiming the name of Jesus or quietly caring for someone in need.
Filmed on location in Israel, this unique video series brings God’s Word to life with astounding relevance. By weaving together the Bible’s fascinating historical, cultural, religious, and geographical contexts, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan reveals unique insights into the Scriptures’ significance for modern believers.
The Death and Resurrection of the Messiah includes:
We serve supper at 6:30 (before classes) on Wednesday nights. Our worship session and master teacher presentation begins at 7:00 and is followed by small age-appropriate groups. The classes end at 8:00 sharp. We have classes for all ages including adults.
