At the end of the evening, everyone goes home with new ideas on how to connect with family and with God.
Please help us make your Messy Church experience an exceptional one by RSVPing for Messy Church on Eventbrite. Though your tickets will be free, we do need a headcount to ensure that we have enough food and materials for everyone who participates!
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.
