Growth and Fellowship for All (GAFFA)
Wednesday Evening Discipleship Opportunities
Everyone is welcome!
Wednesday evenings are a time for everyone, whether you’ve never been to a Sunday service, or you’ve been here for 100 years. Exploring faith? You’re welcome. Been a disciple for years? You’re welcome. Young, old, and any age in between – you’re welcome too. We do what Jesus did, and love everyone!
So what happens at GAFFA? Like the name says…
We Have Fellowship Together
Our time together begins with a meal in our Christian Living Center (CLC) – also known as the gym. This is the large building closest to the gravel lot and route 146.
Meals are served from 5:30 to 7:30 at a cost of $5 for adults. Children are free. Can’t pay? come anyway.
Reservations are preferred, so please contact the church office at 502-241-8984 or email email@example.com by Monday. If you don’t have a reservation, show up anyway!
We Grow Together
After our fellowship meal, Children’s programming begins at 6:00 PM and Youth Group, adult classes, and choir start at 6:30. Everything wraps up at 7:45 PM.
Groups are easy to find, and if you need help finding your way around campus, just ask anyone with a name tag!
Our studies vary throughout the year. Here’s our plan for October 2022:
Spiritual Gifts Bible Study
Pastor Russ – CLC Upward Journey Classroom

“The Chosen” Bible study

Watch the episodes, read the Scriptures, and discuss them together as a group as we learn more about the life and teachings of Jesus in a fresh, new way together.
Hospitality Hour Hangout

If you had a long day, or a stressful week, or just want to relax and talk, simply hang out and chat after the meal.
Alicia Robinette – Meet at the CLC doors
Bring your walking shoes and try to keep up with the Pastor’s wife. Includes a devotional. Weather permitting.
A nursery is available until 8:00 PM.
Children, Kindergarten through 5th grades, will be growing in their faith in a variety of ways with our Children’s Pastor. They will participate in activities and games and a Bible based curriculum each week.
Youth Group is for student’s 6th-12th grade. During this time students will engage in fellowship, activities and learning. An interactive learning time, based on Scripture, will look at what students go through as they navigate adolescence. We meet from 6:30-7:45 PM, leaving as a group from the CLC.
The Cherub Choir is made up of Preschoolers and sings regularly in morning worship and is always a treat! Their repertoire includes Sunday School songs – some new and some that have been around for generations.
Children’s Choir – Joyful Noize!
The Children’s Choir has a long tradition of learning and presenting children’s music for both worship and special events. The Children’s Choir meets weekly and prepares music for both morning worship and for children’s musicals.
The adult choir meets in the choir room from 6:30 p.m. till 8:00pm. The choir is open to everyone college age and above, who loves to sing. No auditions and no experience reading music necessary. Come be a part of the Body of Christ through music in worship.
