Begin August 24
We look forward to focusing on spiritual health, leadership development, and building up the entire family through offering the following opportunities on Wednesday Evenings. Each will take place from 6-7:30pm at the Vandalia Campus and will be available every Wednesday through November 30.
RECOVERING FROM LOSSES IN LIFE CLASS - 6:00-7:30pm
Everything can change in a split second. Maybe you lost your job, your health, or your dream of what you thought your life could be. Maybe you lost someone close to you to death or unresolved conflict.
Maybe you haven’t gone through that much loss in your life, but you fear the losses that could happen. Perhaps, you feel like you aren’t equipped to help others work through their loss. Have you ever tried to provide comfort and care for someone in a time of loss only to end up “sticking your foot in your mouth”?
The truth is everyone will experience loss. God’s Word tells us that in this world, we will have trouble (John 16:33), but we often wonder why we must endure such hardship.
Recovering from the Losses of Life is a biblical study that will help you learn how to respond to loss in a healthy way. It will equip you with practical tools to help you take steps toward healing and recovery. We want to walk alongside you and provide a safe environment for you to experience the love, care, and hope of our Heavenly Father.
We will begin in the Worship Center with a time of prayer at 6:00pm and move to the Fellowship Hall for instruction and group time at 6:30pm. There is no cost to attend, and all are encouraged to participate at whatever degree they feel comfortable. Children’s programming will be available.
SERVING THE NEXT GENERATION - 6:00-7:30pm
If the class above does not resonate with you, there are opportunities for you to reach the next generation with the Gospel of Christ! Our Preschool and Kids Ministry will be walking kids through the “Simply Loved” Kids material. This is a great place for anyone in any life stage to serve and make an impact!
We do ask that anyone who serves in this area complete a background check. To register to serve, go to www.firstlight.church/events. If you have any questions, please contact Kathie Parish,
Children’s Coordinator, at email@example.com or Amber Day, Preschool Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WORSHIP AND PRAYER - 6:00-6:30PM
Every Wednesday we have been meeting as a faith family for Worship and Prayer. This will continue on as we launch our new Wednesday Class. Our Worship and Prayer time will be from 6-6:30pm. All are welcome to join, no registration is required.
KIDS PROGRAMMING - 6:00-7:30PM
Kids birth-6th grade are invited to take a journey through God’s Loving Word as we work through material by “Simply Loved.” Every quarter explores the Old and New Testaments. Kids will journey chronologically through the Bible and discover friendship with Jesus throughout God’s story. Each lesson is age specific and contains:
Captivating Bible Memory
When kids meet a character they love, they remember! That’s why we include animal characters called Bible Memory Buddies to help kids remember who God is and how much He loves them.
Connecting God to His Creation
Every week uses a different animal characteristic to cement Bible learning. These fun facts fascinate kids and show them how God can be seen in every corner of His creation!
Kids don’t learn best when all they do is sit and listen. We get kids moving and experiencing God’s Word through multiple multi-sensory activities!
Kids programming is only available for children who’s parent or guardian is attending the “Losses of Life” class or serving in the Children’s or Preschool Ministry.
