Messy Church Volunteer Sign-up: November 18, 2018

Join us for Messy Church on November 18th at 4:30 pm!

Messy Church is so named because life is messy, and God meets us wherever we are in the chaos; and because the model is interactive, using hands-on activities to reinforce a monthly biblical theme.

And Messy Church isn’t just for kids—it’s for EVERYONE! Created to be a multi-generational experience for the whole family, Messy Church allows us to celebrate God in a fresh, new way. 

Each month we'll focus on a basic biblical theme in a variety of interactive ways. Families will gather in a relaxed and comfortable setting to explore their faith through engaging games, crafts, and activities, then celebrate together through music, prayer, and retelling of a Bible story in a fully participatory setting. They'll round out your experience with a family style dinner and go home with new ideas to connect with their families and with God. 

November's theme: "Listening & Learning"
