WEDNESDAY NIGHT CLASSES

New Start Time for Wednesday Night Programming

 

We are excited to get programming started on January 16!  Here is an important bit of information: Wednesday Night programming will now be 6:30-8:00 PM.

There are two reasons for this change:

  • We want to unify all Wednesday night program starting times and ending times. All regular activities for children, youth, and adults will be 6:30-8:00 PM. No longer do you have to come earlier to drop off teenagers or wait around to pick them up.

  • Parents of our younger children have often said 8:15 or 8:30 is too late to end. We have listened. All programming will end at 8:00 PM.

While saying this, we also acknowledge that our new starting time may not be best for everyone. Some of you may be making more sacrifices, and so want to say, “Thank you!”

We hope to see you here Wednesday nights!

(By the way, I know our youth and children’s team would gladly welcome parents and volunteers to still serve invest in our students. Strong leaders make differences in the lives of the next generation of disciples.)
