Peace Lutheran midweek program

Wednesdays – JAM! Jesus and Me! is a program designed to help kids think bigger, better and grander thoughts about God!  We care about sharing the gospel with your child and teaching them how to build Christian relationships with others.  The afternoon will be a time for kids in grades 1-5 to grow in their own relationship with Jesus.  We will be studying God’s Word, teaching kids how to apply it to their lives, having fun with arts/crafts, music, skits, games and a light supper! Please call or email Kathy Maas to register:  955-2936 or


WEFC Children’s Program

Wed. evenings – We’d love your children to join us at Watertown Evangelical Free Church to learn and share about God!  The evening is filled with stories, music, games and love for our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Whether your child is in Hoppers (born on or before 9/1/11 and potty trained – Pre K) or JWJ – Journey with Jesus (K-6th grade) they will love the friendships they gain with their peers and joy they will feel learning and sharing about God.  The program begins Sept. 25.  All denominations welcome!  See you there!  Please call or email Jen Preston to register:  952-955-1068 or
