Consider Joining Us for Wonderful Wednesdays!

Wednesday evenings are a special time at our church!  From September through Lent, we gather together for a time of fellowship and small group studies. 

Wonderful Wednesdays will run from September 20 to November 15 this fall.  Please join us each of these Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.  We will start each evening with a time of community prayer before breaking into small groups for discussion and learning.  Please note, we will no longer be having dinner prior to the class time but snacks and water will be provided


The study offerings for fall Wonderful Wednesdays include: 

  • Kid’s Club (Ages 5 – 4th Grade): Explores the Bible through games, art, stories and fun!
  • Youth (Grades 5-12):  Kirby will meet with 5th—8th graders and Brian will lead the 9th—12th grader covering topics geared to the age group. Youth can also join other studies if they would like.
  • The Shack: MacKenzie Allen Philip’s youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack. Four years later, in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change Mack’s world forever. Pastor Doug leads a study of “The Shack.” for the first five weeks of Wednesdays.  Books are available in the church office for $7.00.
  • Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic:  This powerful book tells the true story of how addiction devastated Portsmouth, Ohio through the collision of prescription pain pills and cheap heroin.  Pastor Amy will lead a discussion of this best selling book with a focus on the impact in our community and what FUMC can do to help battle the epidemic.  Books can be ordered through the church office for $12.00
  • Parent Connection – Have a New Kid by Friday: This CD-based class  will focus on the book by  New York Times Best Selling author, Dr. Kevin Leman.  Have a New Kid by Friday shows parents how to reverse negative behavior in their children–fast! This study offers hope and real, practical, doable strategies for regaining control and becoming the parents they always wanted to be.  Study guides can be ordered through the church office for $8.00.
  • Choir and Hand Bell Choir Practice – at 7:00 and 8:00 respectively


Nursery care will be available for children under age 5.  We hope you will join us for another series of great evenings of togetherness and fellowship shared among all ages of our congregation!
