CHECK OUT W.O.W.
G.L.O.W. is our Youth Group program for students grades 6-12 on Wednesday nights. G.L.O.W. stands for Grow, Love, Outreach, and Worship.
Our purpose is to teach young people about Jesus and fulfill the mission he left for us in Matthew 28:16-20 -
"Then the eleven disciples left for Galilee, going to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshipped him - but some of them doubted! Jesus came and told his disciples, 'I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Song and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."'
W.O.W. is our Children's program for students 4 years old through 5th grade on Wednesday nights. W.O.W. stands for Word on Wednesdays, and that's what we learn! In W.O.W., we begin young children's faith journeys by discovering all the Bible has to offer. We believe in building a child-like faith in all of our students to help them discover a relationship with God.
Mark 10:13-16 tells us:
"One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so he could touch and bless them. But the disciples scolded the parents for bothering him. When Jesus saw what was happening, he was angry with his disciples. He said to them, 'Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these Children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn't receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.' Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them."
GET READY FOR THIS FALL - THINGS WILL BE EXCITING AND DIFFERENT!
What's the plan?
WOW and GLOW will resume after Labor Day Weekend. WOW is 100% online currently, and GLOW will resume in-person on October 7th. But how will that work?
WOW will be any day of the week you want it to be! Well - every Tuesday, Gabby will be posting a lesson video and your classroom teachers will have activities that go with the lesson for you to do afterward! You can find that pre-recorded video on our WOW Facebook, our Church's Facebook, or our church YouTube channel!
GLOW will remain on Wednesdays from 6-8, in-person starting October 7th. We will begin with games and fellowship or social time. Then we will continue onto our lesson for the night!
WOW will take place on a separate night from GLOW because our hybrid in-person/online plan will consist of one group from each program in person at the church at a time, which means we need to work with different nights. Each week, classes will rotate so each group gets a chance to meet in person again. We will be following social distancing guidelines or wearing masks if we come into close contact with each other.
WE'RE ON SOCIAL MEDIA!
