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."
Maquoketa First's Student Ministries are currently in their Summer Schedule.
For WOW, each Tuesday and Thursday at 2pm we will have our Story Times on the Church's Facebook page. This Summer, we will begin reading "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" by C.S. Lewis.
For GLOW, once again we will be having a Bible study for youth students and this Summer? Man, is this one a fun challenge! This Summer, we will be reading through the book of Revelation! A written dream that the disciple John had about the end of time (bum-bum-buuuuum)! We have been meeting at 12:30 on Wednesday during lunch, outside at parks, McDonald's, and everywhere in between, but making sure to still be mindful of our distances if we meet inside due to weather.
WE'RE ON SOCIAL MEDIA!
