During these cold days of winter, Trinity Lutheran Church is offering kids a safe place to socialize and keep warm. The Kids CHOSEN winter program has begun and will run through the first day of spring. It’s held at the church, located at 1229 Kathy Lane, after school. The first session will start at 1:30 p.m., as that is an early-out day at the local school and end at 4 p.m. But usually, Kids CHOSEN runs from 3:30 – 5 p.m., after school, every Wednesday, for kids in kindergarten through fourth grade.
“CHOSEN stands for Christ’s Hosts of Saints Especially Now,” explains Christian Education Director Karen Hinderks. “Another pastor and I came up with the idea a long time ago. It’s been going on for many, many years.”
Hinderks leads the program, which always includes religious devotions and faith-based games, but it also expands to community service and outreach projects.
“We’ll deliver valentines to shut-ins and deliver other service projects, for example,” she says. “We show DVDs on popcorn days when it’s too cold for outdoor winter fun, but otherwise we also like to get outside for games in the snow and sledding.”
All children are chosen, so all are welcome to join CHOSEN, not just Trinity Lutheran members. Call 832-2220 for more details, or email Hinderks at Karen.firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re looking for some fun on Tuesday nights, look no further than Faith United Methodist Church’s weekly event TPPP. It’s Tuesday Night Pizza with the Pastor at Pickles, a weekly get together that happens every week at Pickles Pub in Webster City from 5 to 6:30 p.m.
It’s actually a Bible Study hosted by both Faith UMC and Kamrar UMC. People are invited to join and study books of the Bible and share pies by the slice. During the study there will also be two offerings accepted, one for the pizza and the other for the Beacon of Hope Men’s Homeless Shelter in Fort Dodge.
For more information about the Bible study, contact Faith United Methodist Church at 832-4787, or send an to email Faithumcpastor@q.com.
