Messy Church

wow I am blogging a lot today!

Tonight I attended a program called Messy Church. It was great and Wyatt loved it! This is the description my friend wrote up so I am just stealing it from her:

Messy Church is a fun, interactive, CHILD-GEARED event that celebrates the family unit as a whole and recognizes that the typical "Sunday morning structure" isn't always accommodating to families. It's a chance to get out and enjoy church in an a-typical setting where the children can interact and be free of the standard structure of church school and a typical worship service. Best of all, it's a chance for them to get to know other children and families in their area!

A typical Messy Church evening includes:

A warm welcome, snacks, etc.
Crafts & Activities (geared for all ages)
Presentation of a Gospel Story
Small, Child-Geared Interactive Worship Service

It was a great experience and everyone was so nice and inviting which was great since I didn't know anybody. Wyatt did lots of crafts and he loved the singing! He was being the little social bug he usually is and talking with everybody. If you here of something like this in your area I highly recommend attending. The best thing was that is was all different churches in the community that got together.

 Check it out at!!

I think every community should do something like this to bring families together.
