WASP (Wednesday After School Program) (Suspended due to lack of participants)
Every Wednesday during the school year from 3:45-5:00 p.m. an after-school program is conducted for the elementary school age children. This is led by Nancy Krueger and Toots Olsen. The group enjoys a snack upon arrival. In devotions the confirmation class takes turns lighting the altar candles before we all sing and pray to the Lord in the classroom. We divide into classes to continue with Bible stories, learn how they relate to us today, and finish with a craft. Confirmation Class is instructed by Pastor during this time. A Christmas program in December is presented by the students followed with a soup and sandwich supper for fellowship.
