wak (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.


Registration for Fall 2022 WAK is currently closed, but you may email our Children's Minister, Michelle Wilkins @ mwilkins@fumchs.com to get more information and to be put on the wait list.
