wak (Wednesday After-School Kidz) 

Our Wednesday after school program for 1st - 5th graders will run from Sept. 4, 2019 - April 24, 2020 on Wednesdays from 4:00-5:30 pm (with the exception of holidays, and a few select dates). We can pick up students in 1st-5th grade from Park Magnet, Lakeside Primary, Lakeside Intermediate, and Lakeside Middle School and transport them from school to our church. A light snack will be served. Parents pick up @ First Methodist in the Christian Life Center - 218 Pratt Street at 5:30pm.


W.A.K. kids experience large group & small group, plus game time. Large group will consist of children's dramatic Bible stories & scripture readings, videos that coincide with Bible stories, and large group prayer time. Then children will be released to their small groups. Each small group will have 2 adults: one teacher and one crew leader who will help the kids dig deeper into the monthly virtue. They will use creative object lessons and classroom games to show the kids how the weekly Bible stories apply to their daily lives and what God is calling each of them to do. Our prayer is that your child forms a deeper relationship with Christ through this ministry. We also pray that they will form some new and lasting friendships with their leaders and peers while they are here.


There is NO FEE for W.A.K., but we do have a maximum limit for each small group. Please note that once the maximum limit is met, we will start a waiting list for the class, but no others will be able to join once a class fills. Our first priority is the safety of the children.


PARENTS: Due to the high demand for this program, please ONLY REGISTER your child, if they will be able to participate on a regular basis. Children that miss frequently due to extracurricular activities will be asked to release their spot to another child who is on the wait list that can participate regularly EACH week.


Currently our Wednesday afternoon program for elementary age level is FULL.   Pre-K & K still have a few openings left. To register for PreK & Kindergarten WAK, click on the link in the next section of this page's website below.
