Wednesday Nights at Bonhomme: Growth Night

Just like Growth Hour on Sunday morning, Growth Night is meant to help us all grow as disciples of Jesus. On Wednesday evenings, we hope the entire family will participate in growing friendships and growing faith. First, join us for Wednesday Night Dinner at 5:30 pm . This is a time of fellowship and friendship.  You’ll have the opportunity to visit with friends and meet new people. At 6:30 pm, after Wednesday Night Dinner, the entire family can participate in a time of faith growing with programs for all ages. Take a class, join a choir, drop off the little ones to childcare and grow. Middle school and high school students can take refuge or serve. Older children can join tRUE Identity groups or participate in our full-of-praise music groups. Whatever your age or stage of life, we hope Wednesday nights enable you to unite as a family and grow.

Grow Your Friendships:

Wednesday Night Dinner at 5:30 pm

Wednesday Night Dinners are a time to connect with old friends and building relationships with new ones. Families, singles, couples, children and adults. Everyone is invited. To register online for Wednesday Night Dinners, click the button to the right. Please register by the Sunday before so our cooks have time to prepare. 

Most Wednesdays, September through May.  Advance reservations are required. Sign up on the fellowship pads, worship bulletin tear-offs, or call Irma at the church office at 636.532.3486.
The Adult Ministry has decided to underwrite a portion of the cost for Wednesday Night Dinners as we encourage anyone to attend this faith-filling night. There is a suggested donation of Adults ($5), College Students (FREE), Teenagers ($4) and Children ($3.) If children choose to eat off of a kid-friendly menu, there is NO cost for them. Please note this on the bulletin or friendship pad, or when you make reservations by using an asterisk (*).

Wednesday Night Programs at 6:30 pm

For Adults

Five Psalms to Carry Through Live [Don Everts, Room 3205]

The opening of the Psalms celebrate that the one who “meditates” on God’s word day and night is like a tree planted by water. But how can we meditate on something so big? Come spend time handling five simple Psalms that (by end of class) we hope to “know by heart” so that we can carry them through life with us – day and night.

Missional Community – Small Group [Chris Macky, Watson Chapel]

The Missional Community is a group of folks here at Bonhomme who are learning together how to reach our neighbors in West County. The Core Group is just forming now and invites you to come and check out this exciting new adventure!

All Things New [AmyRuth Bartlett, Watson Chapel]

[In conjunction with the Missional Community; Everyone is welcome]

“We live in a worry filled world, occupied and preoccupied with many things, while at the same time feeling bored, resentful, depressed, and very lonely. In the midst of this world, Jesus Christ appears and offers us the life of the Spirit of God. The spiritual life is not beyond our everyday existence. No, the spiritual life can only be real when it is lived in the midst of the pains and joys of the here and now. If we are willing to live a life of prayer and practice the disciplines of solitude and community, we will discover the power of our worries weakening as all things are being made new.” Are you interested in deepening your own spiritual life and inviting others into a deeper relationship with Jesus as well? Join us Sunday mornings, or Wednesday or Thursday evenings to enter into these disciplines and prepare to lead a small group to do the same throughout Lent.
