Wednesday Night Live

It’s EWALU night at WNL! We will have a campfire in the fellowship hall. LT’s from EWALU will be here to lead us in songs and games. Join us for fun and food.  What’s a campfire without s’mores and trail mix!

WNL goes from 7 – 8 pm. (Please note the time on the Events Today calendar is incorrect.) Tonight we will be meeting in the fellowship hall instead of our normal room.

No Sunday School 11/28

Neither 9:45 or 11:00 Sunday schools will meet on 11/28 due to Thanksgiving.  Sunday school will resume on 12/5.  Have a great Thanksgiving!

Please remember to practice the class lines and songs for the Christmas Program with your child. Lines and lyrics were sent home during Sunday school and/or e-mailed last week. All preschool – 5th grade students are invited to participate.  If you need line and lyric sheets, please contact Tammy or Jill. Thanks.

NO WNL Wednesday 11/24

Due to Thanksgiving break we will not have WNL this week, 11/24. WNL will resume 12/1 . Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

What’s the “buzz” at Wednesday Night Live?

We will have black and gold visitors this week at WNL. No, not the Hawkeye football team. Bees! Local beekeeper, Arlene Burns, will bring in bees and equipment this week.  We will learn about the important role these little creatures play in our world. Bees are another part of Heifer International’s program to help families throughout the world.  All 3rd – 5th graders are invited to join us from 7 -8 pm on Wednesdays.
