Every Sunday morning this year while Sunday school is in session, First Presbyterian Church in Grand Junction will host Wake Up Café, a breakfast event for children in the congregation.
The meal, which consists of breakfast staples like pancakes, sausage, French toast and biscuits and gravy, begins at 8:30 a.m. Sunday school begins at 9:15 a.m., and worship is at 10:30 a.m. All children in the congregation are encouraged to attend.
On Sunday, Sept. 15, First Presbyterian Church will host a joint worship service at Spring Lake Park in Jefferson with the congregation of the First Presbyterian church in Paton. The worship service begins at 10 a.m. and will be open to campers in the park and the community at large. A potluck is scheduled to follow the service.
On Sunday, Sept. 29, First United Methodist Church in Jefferson will host a discussion with Bev Nolte, a congregation member of First United Methodist Church in Des Moines and the leader of the unique partnership between the Iowa United Methodist Church and the Nigerian United Methodist Church in Africa. Nolte recently returned from Nigeria and will speak about her experiences. Worship begins at 9:30 a.m.
Starting Wednesday Sept. 11, Central Christian Church and Christ Lutheran Church will partner in ministry offering a free after-school children’s program called “Miracles.” The Miracles Children’s Program is offered every Wednesday after school for kindergartners to fourth graders from 2 – 5 p.m. at Central Christian Church. The program is free and provides transportation from the elementary school to the church. Children enjoy games, snacks, crafts, music and stories of faith, as well as opportunities to serve and sing in the community. Children sometimes sing in local nursing homes and in Sunday worship services.
“Children develop meaningful friendships and learn to love one another,” says Pastor Debbie Griffin. “Our Miracles program is a wonderful benefit to parents, too. They have the security of knowing their children are in a safe and loving environment on Wednesdays after school. We are excited to be partnering this year with Christ Lutheran Church so more children can benefit from the program. “
Parents and guardians can register their children either online at lovinggodlovingneighbor.org, or in person at Christ Lutheran Church or Central Christian Church. For more information, please contact Central Christian Church at 515-386-4315.
