Wednesday is Church day at Highland. After Rally Day and running through May a full lineup of programs is available on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 – 7:30. Childcare will be provided for children 3 and under in the nursery.
Kingdom Kids resumes September 10 for children 4 and up. This program instructs children in biblical content, while providing age appropriate activities such as arts and crafts, cooking, games, singing and making music. This is a great opportunity for children to learn how to be a disciple of Christ and develop Christian friendships.
Options for adults differ each week.
1st Wednesday – Dinner and Devotionals. We share a meal together from 6:00 – 6:30, (suggested donation of $2 per person), which is followed by an in-depth, interactive Bible study. We did this last year during Lent and it was a huge success. This Bible Study will be especially beneficial to the increasing number of people required to work on Sunday, keeping them connected to the Church and growing in the word of God. If you, or someone you know, is required to work on Sunday mornings, please bring them to these Bible Studies. The first Dinner-Devotional will be held Wednesday, October 1.
2nd Wednesday – Committee Wednesday. Our Church’s Session is made up of different committees, (Finance Committee, Christian Education Committee, Congregational Life Committee, Mission & Evangelism Committee, Worship & Music Committee), which oversees every aspect of our church’s operation. Whereas previously these committees met at different places and at different times, on different days of the week, and different weeks of the month, now each committee is meeting at the same time and place, (just a different part of the building). Why the change? First, we wanted to increase membership participation on these committees, especially with an eye to having more seasoned members of our church mentoring and instructing younger members in the operations of the church. If we have all the committees meet at the same time we can justify the expense of childcare, thus making committee involvement more accessible to parents with children. Second, we’re hoping this change will increase the productivity and efficiency of the work done by the committees. Oftentimes committees are working on different aspects of the same issue. Meeting at a common place and time could facilitate collaboration amongst the committees and reduce redundancies or miscommunication.
3rd Wednesday – Session. If you’re not on Session, take your kids or grandkids to Kingdom Kids and enjoy a night off!
4th and 5th Wednesdays – Prayer Meeting This will be a chance for us to pray together, to pray for one another, to pray for the needs of our church, our neighborhood, our world. We will use the Scripture as a tool which teaches us how to pray; the Scriptures will guide our prayers, and shape the content of our prayer requests. It will be a power hour of prayer, a very beneficial help in getting through the week.
This Wednesday programming will begin the first Wednesday after Rally Day, September 10 and run through May. So get in the habit of going to church on Wednesdays. We often find it hard to go from Sunday to Sunday without being in the fellowship of my church family. Spending Wednesdays together will draw us closer as a family of faith, and it will refocus us on our primary task of fully devoting ourselves to Christ.
