WEDNESDAY NIGHT LIVE!!!

Hopefully, you have all heard by now that we are adding a new program for our Youth Group! The name of this new initiative is none other than... WEDNESDAY NIGHT LIVE and it started September 13th from 5:30-7:30PM with a huge kick-off celebration!! Our Youth won't want to miss this opportunity to hang out with their friends while praising God for the life He has given them!  We are packing a lot into these evenings, and we are stoked to present this wonderful opportunity for our youth to grow in their faith with one another! This is by no means a substitute for Sunday morning worship, it is just an opportunity for us to pour God's love and assurance into our kids lives. My goal is to make this a time where our youth and their friends are begging to come back to church so that they can hear more about God's love and the promises He has made to them. We have found a really top notch curriculum that we will be using from Group called "LIVE". It will remind us that our faith is not a passive thing that we can hide away until moments that are convenient for us to dust it off. Instead, our faith is active, and we "LIVE" our faith every day as we respond to God's eternal love for us! I will personally vet all material before we send anything out to our kids, and this is going to be awesome!

The schedule that we will use every week throughout the school year is...
 

  • 5:30PM-6:10PM Kids arrive at church, and we play games. (Split into age groups where High School youth will play with High Schoolers and Jr High will play with Jr High)

 

  • 6:10PM-6:25PM Eat Dinner together

 

  • 6:30PM-7PM Time of Prayer and Praise in Sanctuary (I will offer a 5 minute message)

 

  • 7PM-7:30PM Devotion (Split into appropriate age groups. 5th and 6th graders together, 7th and 8th graders together, and High Schoolers together.)


The awesome thing about this program is that as parents you receive a weekly email from me detailing what we learned during our time of devotion, as well as questions that will help you keep the discussion rolling at home. Our kids will also receive daily texts from me that will all connect with that weeks lesson, and remind them of upcoming gatherings! 

If you are interested in assisting us with this fantastic opportunity please let me know. Currently we have a wonderful list of Young Adults ready to come teach both Jr. High classes, but we are always looking for more volunteers and can use your help! Please keep our youth in your prayers!

Come next week as we continue our Wednesday Night Live youth nights! See you soon!


Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

and all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6
