Today is Wednesday and that means that after school, our middle school & high school youth will converge upon the church for CORE from 2:45pm – 5:00pm. At 5:00pm, families, adults, younger children will gather for Bible Study, missions, music, and a family style dinner. Rumor has it that it is taco night! If you want to share in a community meal, consider joining us at 5:00pm for classes followed by dinner at 6pm.
If you are interested in preparing a meal one (or more!) Wednesdays a month for a group of 50 or 60, please see Amy or Marc or call the church office. You pick the meal, Amy or Marc shop, you prepare the meal and everyone enjoys it together! The Wednesday community meal is a longstanding Bethany tradition and all are welcome to come and explore matters of faith, meet new friends and reconnect with old friends. You can read updates from Amy & Marc on our Children and Youth Ministry activities in the February tower notes.
Wednesday evenings at 5:00pm, the youth and children get to decide what groups they want to be involved in. One option is to work on a Mission project. Adult leaders help the children to visualize a service project and then put it into action. The kids wanted to do something special for the shut-ins for the month of February and they worked very hard on making Valentine’s baskets and then they spent an evening delivering them and bringing some cheer and conversation to the people they made the baskets for. If you are interested in getting involved in Youth Missions, show up on Wednesdays with a willing heart or contact the church office for more details.
Here’s some pictures of the Valentine’s service project.
