Wednesday Night Connexion Ministries

Our Wednesday Night ministries for all age levels.

On Wednesday nights, from September thru May, we offer a variety of classes for all ages!

This fall, Wednesday Night Connexion classes will begin on Wednesday, September 15, 2021. Due to continued high numbers of COVID cases in Hamilton County, all but one of the classes (Life Planning for All Ages) will be meeting via Zoom. Please review the available class options below and contact the church office if you have any questions. Zoom links are listed below each class!

Children's Ministry Class: JAM and Jelly

Wednesdays at 6pm

Children will learn how to avoid the mistakes these bad guys made as well as stand against the villains that still attack us today. Kids may not face actual bad guys, but the temptations that come from selfishness and peer pressure still require God's help. Take home bags will be available for this study on Sunday, September 12! Click on the link below or enter the following in your Zoom app:

At 6pm on Wednesdays, Burks' Endowment & Planned Giving Ministry will begin a series of presentations entitled, “Life Planning for All Ages.” While the focus of the last series was on Seniors, we believe the classes this year will be helpful for anyone.

However, depending on Covid numbers over the next few months, we may limit attendance to Zoom. If you are interested in participating, please contact Dan Boland at  bolanddj@comcast.net or (724)448-0157. Scheduled topics are as follows:
