Join us for Messy Church from 4:30 - 6:00 p.m. on the SECOND Sunday of each month all year! The next date is Sunday, February 10th, and the theme is "Self-confidence."
Why the name "Messy Church?" Because life is messy, and we are imperfect; Jesus spent his time with those who were seen as outsiders, rather than those who were seen as having orderly, perfect lives. The name doesn't mean that our building is a mess, or that we lack organization, quite the opposite in fact!
It does mean that we are open to letting God take control in how He will use the time with each person that participates, allowing learning to happen through an interactive approach that brings all generations together and uses hands-on activities to reinforce a monthly biblical theme.
Here's what a typical Messy Church experience looks like:
4:30 - 5:00 pm: Crafts, activities & games based on the monthly theme
5:00 - 5:15 pm: Interactive worship time with music and movement incorporating bible stories that reinforce the monthly them.
5:15 - 6:00 pm: A family-style dinner is served, offering plenty of opportunity for fellowship and socializing.
At the end of the evening, everyone goes home with new ideas on how to connect with family and with God. To RSVP for Messy Church, CLICK HERE. For more information about Messy Church at Ghent United Methodist Church, call 757-622-2843.
