Every Wednesday, from 09/13/2023 to 11/15/2023, 4:30 PM - 7:15 PM
We’re going BIG on Wednesday Night’s This Fall!
In an effort to continue our goal of rebuilding community, we are transforming Wednesday nights into a special weekly church-wide, intergenerational gathering for everyone called, Mosaic Wednesdays. Every Wednesday, we will have a delicious dinner catered by Deeper Than Sweets (a Black LGBTQ owned company) starting at 5:30 pm.
Following dinner there will be spiritual growth programing for children, youth, and adults and a once-a-month intergenerational activity. All Ministry and committee meetings will be moving to a Wednesday night schedule.
Be sure to add Mosaic Wednesdays to your fall calendar. This is a new weekly, church-wide event that you won’t want to miss.
Here is the basic schedule:
4:30-5:30 pm | Sage-ing Adults Program
5:30-6:30 pm | Dinner for all ages
6:00-7:00 pm | Children's Music & Art
6:30-7:15 pm | Adult & Youth Programs and Meetings | 3rd Wednesday Activity Night for all ages
7:00-7:15 pm | Children's Movement, Games, Chorus (optional)
On the Menu
Chicken and Rice Casserole | Vegetarian Penne Pasta with Tomato Sauce | Tossed Salad with Toppings | Green Beans | Dinner Roll | Tea and Lemonade
Did you know that intergenerational activities benefit all ages? For example, participating in intergenerational activities means children are more likely to volunteer and hold leadership positions; working adults are more likely to have less stress; and elders have increased energy and better cognitive performance. If you’re interested in these benefits, meeting other church members, and building a sense of community, we invite you to join us for our monthly community nights, every 3rd Wednesday! While these benefits are great, we can’t miss the most important reason to join us for intergenerational community nights: HAVING FUN! From name that tune, to community service events, all ages will be able to participate and contribute. We hope you join us for dinner starting at 5:30pm, and Community Night immediately following. See you there!

"Inerrant" and "infallible" aren't the only approaches to reading scripture; in fact, questioning the text and revisiting the interpretations that were once embraced is what leads to our growth. Join us to study familiar texts with fresh insights, inclusive theological commentary, and a newfound appreciation for the Bible.
DO MIRACLES MATTER?
6:30 pm | Heaton Hall
Format | Topical Series | Lecture & Discussion
Audience | Adult, Youth
Led by | Dr. John Blackshire
From changing water to wine, healing the sick, and raising the dead, scripture talks of Jesus' miracles in great detail. However, did these miracles stop with Jesus? Do miracles happen today? What do we mean by miracle? Join us for rich discussion all about miracles!
