Our Wednesday night student ministry now follows a new schedule and uses a new curriculum series called “What We Believe.” We continue to 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 presents the heart of the lesson each week. Then our students divide into school-grade-based groups. First to exit, Pre-K-Grade 2 (Jefferson School students in JC) follow their teacher Marta Phillips to her well-equipped classroom on our lower level. Lincoln School students (grades 3-4) are lead by Sarah Fletcher to a new classroom upstairs in our youth center. Washington Middle School students (grades 5-8) divide up by gender. Girls go with Janice Legendre to an upstairs classroom and boys stay in the auditorium with teacher Roger Legendre and his helpers (Bill and Rick). High School students meet in the fellowship hall (or a nearby classroom) with leaders, Amy Williamson and Sabra Sones. Adults gather in the library with teacher Doug Hancock. There’s something for everyone. Come join us this Wednesday.
Death and Resurrection of the Messiah:
Bringing God’s Shalom to a World in Chaos
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.

- When Storms Come – Sea of Galilee
- Piercing the Darkness – Kursi
