POWER Up! is a kid’s devotion time on Wednesday evenings offering a variety of activities and experiences that explore God’s word, presence, and power in our day-to-day lives. It’s a time for friendship and faith-building, for questions and discovery, and absolutely a time for fun! There is no fee for this September-May program. You may register at any time.

Fall 2020 update: Pastor Ryan and our Children’s Ministry Director, Patty Mesenbring were privileged to gather input from a group of parents regarding ideas for Sunday school and Wednesday evening programs this fall.
Parents shared that maintaining habits, rituals and traditions is important to families—the ritual of Sunday morning worship and the weekly habit of Sunday school; the tradition of Wednesday evening being “church night.”
Staff and parents worked together to come up with some options that will allow families to continue building and deepening faith through these important practices. Our plans are outlined below, but we welcome your suggestions for improvement or changes at any time.
Beginning September 16—A prerecorded video will be offered on YouTube for younger children. This might include a story or devotion, songs or poems with actions and a bedtime prayer. Links to the videos and any downloadable materials will be emailed to parents and will also be accessible via our POWER Up! resources page. Older children will meet via Zoom for devotions, connecting, sharing and an evening prayer.
Because each child is different in their response to and level of participation in gathering via video, we have not put age ranges on the two groups. We felt that parents could best judge which option would be most appropriate for their child.
Times and other program details will need to be coordinated with our new choir director and will be communicated to families as soon as plans are finalized.
