Prayer and Meditation Family Workshop

Prayer and Meditation Family Workshop

Is being still difficult for you? Your child? We want to help you cultivate a meaningful prayer life with your family.

Join The Rev. Justin LaRosa and the Children’s Ministries team for our Prayer and Meditation Family Workshop.

10:45 a.m. – noon, Sunday, Feb 24
Harnish Activities Center and The Chapel

We’ll take the mystery out of meditation and help your family discover all the benefits!

This workshop is geared for families with elementary-aged kids and older.

Learn about prayer and Christian meditation. Become more comfortable and confident with these practices in your regular life. Deepen your discipleship and maybe lower your blood pressure at the same time.

We’ll incorporate some yoga stretching so we suggest you wear comfortable clothing that day: long pants, comfortable shoes, etc.


Faith Steps Picture Bible Parent Class

Faith Steps Picture Bible Parent Class

Are you a parent of a two- or three-year-old? Do you want them to grow in God’s love? This faith-building class is for you!

Your toddler is learning and soaking up so much right now and it’s never too early to teach them about God. Sign up for our three week Faith Steps Picture Bible parent class and learn how to support your little ones as they take their first steps in faith.

Classes are 10:45 a. m. – Noon on Sundays, Feb. 3, 10 and 17. The class will meet in Room 201 of the Wesley Center.

In these three sessions parents learn:
• How to talk about God and share faith with your toddler.
• How to create a home environment that invites God to be real and present.
• How to pray more effectively with your child.
• How to speak words of blessing to your child.

You will also have the chance to discuss with other parents of preschoolers the challenges and joys of spiritual parenting.

Your child will be presented with their own Picture Bible in worship on Sunday, Feb 24.

Childcare/nursery available. Feel free to invite friends!

Family Fun Night — Feb. 1, 2019

Family Fun Night — Feb. 1, 2019

Get Yeti….Family Fun Night is coming!

6-8 p.m., Feb. 1 in the Harnish Activities Center

Join your friends and church family to watch “Small Foot” in the Harnish Activities Center. An animated adventure for all ages, with original music and an all-star cast, “Smallfoot” turns a myth upside down when a bright young yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human.

News of this “smallfoot” throws the simple yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village, in an all new story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.

The event will also feature a delicious dinner, theater style concession stand, popcorn and soft pretzels! Kids (and adults!) are invited to wear their PJ’s, bring pillows and blankets too! Share God’s love and invite friends and neighbors!

$5 suggested donation per family.
