wak (Wednesday After School Kidz)

Wednesday Afternoon Kids (WAK) and CLUB 45 are our free Wednesday after school programs for 1st - 5th graders.  They run during the school year from September through April on Wednesdays from 4:00 - 5:30 pm.  Each Wednesday, we pick up students from Park Magnet, Lakeside Primary, Lakeside Intermediate, and Lakeside Middle School and transport them from school to our church.  1st - 3rd graders participate in Bible Stories, games, and crafts.

4th & 5th graders are in our CLUB 45 program!  They participate in small group time, devotionals, and games each week from 4:00 - 5:30 pm.  A light snack will be served.

Parents pick up at First Methodist in the Christian Life Center (218 Pratt Street) at 5:30 pm.

All 1st - 5th grade students must re-register for WAK and CLUB 45 for the winter/spring semester 2019, even if they attended the fall/winter 2018 semester.   Deadline to register is Friday, December 21, or until we reach room capacity, whichever comes first!


Please contact Michelle Wilkins, Director of Children's Ministries at (501) 318-3977, or by email at mwilkins@fumchs.com if you any further questions or concerns!


Pre-K & Kindergarten kids will also have an opportunity to enjoy crafts, snacks, games, Bible stories, and music on Wednesdays by joining us at 4:00 pm in the Romper Room in the Christian Life Center.  Parent transportation is required for this program because we cannot bus children under 1st grade.  Pre-K children must have turned 4 years old by August 1, 2017.  Pick up is at 5:30 pm.

You must register your child every semester.  Spots are filled each semester on a first come, first serve basis.


For more information or questions, please contact Children's Ministry Director at (501) 318-3977 or by email.
