Church Gets Messy at St. John’s UCC!
We invite you to experience a new type of worship with Messy Church the second and fourth Wednesday of each month from 5:30 to 7 p.m. This is one of the first Messy Churches in the state of Missouri!
At Messy Church, we take the main elements of worship out of the traditional setting to appeal to those who perhaps can’t make it on the weekend or are looking for a different type of worship experience for their family. No matter what your past church experience is – Messy Church will be something new.
This twice-monthly worship uses hands-on activities to explore Bible stories, reflect a God of love, grace and hope and give people a chance to play, learn and dine together! People will gather from their busy lives and reconnect with each other over a shared meal, then activities for all-ages playing and working together to explore the theme of that night’s Bible story. A short interactive celebration time of story, song and prayer follows the activity time. Each night will also include a message from Pastor Todd and the second Wednesday of each month, we will celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion.
Messy Church is for adults and children to enjoy together – every element aims to be relevant and accessible to all ages. It’s an additional opportunity for worship during the week, plus it’s one night you won’t have to worry about dinner!
