WELCOME TO WOW!
WOW is open for children age 4 (potty trained) through 5th grade and takes place on Wednesday nights from 5:15 - 7 pm. This includes supper, a group game, large group lesson, and classroom time for small group discussion and crafts. Each night we begin by singing and dancing to our favorite songs from Vacation Bible School, we introduce a lesson based on Bible stories, dismiss into classrooms to talk more about the lesson with a fun craft, and we end by singing with the Joyful Noise praise team and choir.

WOW SUMMER SCHEDULE
During the Summer, WOW will be continuing their Story Times on Tuesday and Thursday at 2pm on the Church's Facebook Page - Maquoketa First United Methodist. Over the next few months we will be reading ourselves onto wild adventures, daring challenges, and transporting ourselves to different worlds through C.S. Lewis' books, "The Chronicles of Narnia."
We will start at the beginning of Narnia with "The Magician's Nephew" and throughout this series we will see many ties between Narnia and the adventures of the children in the story, and Christianity and our own adventures!
We will read one chapter each day and see just how far we get into Narnia!
ABOUT THE SERIES:
The Chronicles of Narnia is a series of fantasy novels by British author C. S. Lewis. Written by Lewis, illustrated by Pauline Baynes, and originally published in London between 1950 and 1956, The Chronicles of Narnia has been adapted for radio, television, the stage, and film. The series is set in the fictional realm of Narnia, a fantasy world of magic, mythical beasts, and talking animals. It narrates the adventures of various children who play central roles in the unfolding history of the Narnian world. Except in The Horse and His Boy, the protagonists are all children from the real world who are magically transported to Narnia, where they are sometimes called upon by the lion Aslan to protect Narnia from evil. The books span the entire history of Narnia, from its creation in The Magician's Nephew to its eventual destruction in The Last Battle.
ABOUT "THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE"
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a fantasy novel for children by C. S. Lewis, published by Geoffrey Bles in 1950. It is the first published and best known of seven novels in The Chronicles of Narnia (1950–1956). Among all the author's books, it is also the most widely held in libraries. Although it was originally the first of The Chronicles of Narnia, it is volume two in recent editions that are sequenced by the stories' chronology. Like the other Chronicles, it was illustrated by Pauline Baynes, and her work has been retained in many later editions.
Most of the novel is set in Narnia, a land of talking animals and mythical creatures that is ruled by the evil White Witch. In the frame story, four English children are relocated to a large, old country house following a wartime evacuation. The youngest, Lucy, visits Narnia three times via the magic of a wardrobe in a spare room. Lucy's three siblings are with her on her third visit to Narnia. In Narnia, the siblings seem fit to fulfill an old prophecy and find themselves adventuring to save Narnia and their own lives.
