Wednesdays Alive at Seymour

Food, fellowship, and fun times.

WAS stands for Wednesdays Alive at Seymour

Wednesdays Alive at Seymour began in 1990 as a way to provide opportunities for fellowship and spiritual growth for all age groups at Seymour Church. It is a series of 15 suppers scheduled for every other Wednesday during the school year. There are breaks in the schedule during the holidays. The final WAS supper is a fundraiser for our Youth Group.

The meal begins promptly at 6 PM with brief opening devotions led by the zone elder or deacon. (If you arrive late, please wait quietly in the hall until devotions are done.) A simple, delicious meal is served family style in the big fellowship room downstairs. The dinner includes coffee or milk, and dessert. There are highchairs available for little ones. Parents, please keep your children with you at the table until they are dismissed at 6:30 PM.

When WAS began in 1990, the meal was $1.50 for adults and $1 for children under 12. Over the years, we have increased the price as little as possible. This season, the suggested donation will be $3 for adults and remain at $2 per child, or $10 for a family of 4 or more. If you contribute a little more or less, that’s fine. A donation pail will be on each table.

After the meal, we quickly clear the tables, store the chairs, get the leftovers to the kitchen and vacuum the room so the GEMS can use the room at 6:45 PM. Please help the zone in charge by taking care of your own dishes, food and trash, and helping put away tables and chairs. If your zone is on duty, please stay and help them finish up before leaving the basement.

A nursery is provided at no charge for children too young to go to the kids’ programs. It is staffed by 2 high school or older people and it is located in the baby nursery. Parents are encouraged to use the nursery and enjoy the fellowship and programs of the evening.

Several ministries are provided for children in Pre-K and older, including Kingdom Kids, GEMS and Cadets. The GEMS meet in the sanctuary for their opening praise and worship time until 6:45 PM and then go to their respective rooms. Anyone is welcome to join them for opening worship in the sanctuary.

You are welcome to join our adult classes or activities at 6:45 pm. The programs end at 8 PM. Although we would enjoy your company, you do not need to attend the supper to come to the classes or groups.
