Wonderfully made & Loved by God

Help your preteen learn they are wonderfully made by God with this faith and sexuality education program. Wonderfully Made is a 2-day human sexuality class for students who just completed 5th-7th grade.

The preteen years are tough. Changes are happening to their bodies, minds, and emotions which makes it hard to know exactly what’s going on and what hard topics to try and discuss with Mom and Dad.  Wonderfully Made provides the opportunity to not only ask questions about growing up, but to get faith-based answers as well. The curriculum covers physical development and spiritual connection while helping preteens establish a foundation for their life in Christ.

All completed 5th -7th graders are invited to take this class. (Going into 6th - 8th grade in Fall of 2022). Registration fee of $40 per student covers the cost of the book, supplies, trainer's fee and the student's snacks and breakfast/lunch on Saturday. Space is limited to 20 students for this workshop, so it will fill quickly!

All classes including the parent meeting will be held in "The Underground" youth area.

wednesday After-school Kids

Our Wednesday After-School Kids program (W.A.K.) is for any Pre-K student up through 5th grade.  W.A.K. starts Wednesday. September 14, 2022 and runs through the middle of March.   

Classes & activities are held on Wednesdays from 4:00-5:30 pm

(with the exception of holidays, and a few select dates).  

We pick-up students in 1st-5th grades from Park Magnet, Lakeside Primary, Lakeside Intermediate, and Lakeside Middle School and transport them by bus or church van from school to our church. (Note:  

Pre-K & Kindergarten students are brought by their parent/guardian and sign-in @ the Romper Room in the Christian Life Center).  

A light snack will be provided for all students. 

All parents pick up @ First Methodist in the Christian Life Center - 218 Pratt Street at 5:30pm.  

All students MUST BE PRE-REGISTERED  in order to participate. 

W.A.K. kids experience a rotation of Bible-based activities each week including SNACKS, CRAFTS, GAMES, STEM PROJECTS, BIBLE STORY VIDEOS, & SMALL GROUPS.  We use creative STEM object lessons, crafts, games, and videos to show the kids how the weekly Bible stories apply to their daily lives and what God is calling them to do!  Our prayer is that your child forms a deeper relationship with Christ through this ministry. We also pray that they will form some new and lasting friendships with their leaders and peers while they are here.

There is NO FEE for W.A.K., but we do have a maximum limit of kids for each small group.
