Wednesday Evening Activities

Kindergarten-3rd Grade
Club FISH (Finding, Inviting, Sharing, Helping) operates September through April, meeting on first and third Wednesdays. Through worship, drama, creativity and activity, children explore biblical truths and learn to fellowship with other children from the church family.
 
4th -6th Grades
Boys Club and Girls Club provide age-appropriate activities to teach tweenagers about developing a personal relationship with Jesus, while enjoying their peers. Dividing by gender allows groups to interact without pressure to impress the other gender, and discuss issues that would be inhibited by the presence of the other gender. Boys and Girls Clubs meet in first and third Wednesdays, September through April. Girls Club members kick off the year with attendance at the Girls Jamboree at Camp Luz in August.
7th and 8th Grades
Junior Youth Fellowship (JYF) celebrates the energy of the middle school years with fun activities, designed to prompt analysis of life and faith, while building friendships that cross schools and genders. A summer service trip or other activity is the highlight of the year. JYF meets on first and third Wednesdays, September through April.
9th -12th Grades
Mennonite Youth Fellowship (MYF) helps students create close ties with other youth within the church and with youth leaders. Students often enjoy the group so much that they bring friends who attend on a regular basis. Exploring tough issues, voicing sensitive questions, and learning from others are the heart of this group which meets weekly throughout the year. A summer cross-cultural service trip or attendance at Mennonite Church USA's biennial convention are highlights.
