Messy Church Is Coming to St. Paul!

Wednesdays, March 8–April 5, 5:45-8:00 p.m.

Messy Church is a way of being church for families and individuals of all ages that involves fun and play. The goal of the program is to help individuals of all ages not only learn about God but encounter Him through their time of fun and fellowship. In order to achieve these goals each Messy Church session is composed of a welcome, a shared meal, an activity time and a celebration (group worship). During the activity time, families (not just children) will get to work their way through several activity stations at their own pace (if a toddler wants to spend the entire time playing in a sensory, bin they are more than welcome to). Each night there will be numerous stations centered on a theme. The goal is to have activities for every type of learner, so each week they’ll be several different activities including crafting, constructing, mission and game play.

Messy Church is meant to be inclusive so start getting the word out to everyone you know that Messy Church is coming, and they are welcome to attend.  Seriously, Messy Church is for EVERYONE! Invite your family, friends and neighbors.
