Midweek Connect

WEDNESDAYS

We all want to be in a place “where everybody knows your name.” But we also want to know more about the God who loves us and how we can follow Him. That’s what’s happening at First Church on Wednesday nights—a place to connect with others and with God.

DINNER

THE COMMUNITY DINNER is served Wednesdays, from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m., in Keith Jones Hall, and is both tasty and nutritious. Suggested donations are $5 for one, and $10 for a family. You don’t need to register—just come!

THE MENU for Wednesday, November 14, is John’s tasty Kielbasa with mashed potatoes, vegetable medley, salad, brownies, and kids’ meal.

November 21 — No Midweek Connect (Thanksgiving week).

November 28 — Tacos (pulled pork or seasoned hamburger) with fixin’s, black bean salad, kids’ meal, and brownies.
