Welcome to Wonderful Wednesdays (updated 08/26/16)

The work week is long and can be a source of tension and stress. Maybe you attended worship on a Sunday, getting recharged for the week ahead. Maybe you have a conflict and are unable to attend on Sundays. No matter your situation, we know that often the worries of the world can weigh heavily and get you down.

In the middle of the week, we invite you to take time to relax and reconnect as a part of this intergenerational ministry. Each Wednesday night includes programs for people of all ages, including early childhood music, spiritual formation and music training for elementary and middle school students, Confirmation curriculum, specialized Adult Education classes and seminars, an intergenerational community meal, and special worship services.

Wonderful Wednesdays has something for everyone, but most importantly it offers an opportunity to be a part of a vibrant and welcoming community of faith. Join us!
