Wednesday Night Activities for 3rd - 5th Grade Students               
5:30PM - 7:30PM every Wednesday night from September to May
We will begin our evening with a meal provided from 5:30PM to 6:00PM followed by worship and small group activities. During our small group time we will GRAPPLE with some of the big questions preteens have. We will tackle the questions together, learning how to search the Bible for truth and not settling for pat answers. Kids will learn to own their faith as they dig deep into God's Word to answer their deepest questions and build a faith foundation that guides wise choices.

After the blessing, students will receive a special tag to place on their backpack to remind them that their church family will be praying for them throughout the year.
