We observe Holy Week with a posture of reflection, heaviness and gratitude. Remembering the life and death of Jesus in this way brings a fullness of joy when we celebrate the resurrection and what it means for the world today. We warmly invite you to celebrate the hope we have in Jesus this Easter.
June 15-19 at Michindoh. This year, we get to offer three camps at a single, new location. Our NextGen Summer Camp has space for Elementary (grades 2-5), Middle School (grades 6-8) and High School (grades 9-12) and is located 90 miles west of Ward Church. Michindoh has 250 beautiful acres of rolling hills, wetlands, and a private spring-fed lake, the camp offers numerous recreational activities to entertain, develop, and challenge guests of all ages. Join us for a great week of learning about Jesus, fun and more!
One of Ward Church’s Core Values is “Thoughtful Theology.” We avoid simplistic answers and ask some tough questions in our faith and in our lives. If you’ve ever had questions about God’s sovereignty, humankind’s depravity or predestination – we’ll dive into some teaching and discussion on this and more at the upcoming seminar.
“Where have I been saying no? What am I afraid of – where I can take a step in faith and say yes? God asked Moses to just say yes, and God opened the doors for him. He’ll do that for me. Do I want to be the guy who buries what God has given me?” asks Ward elder Kurt Lipsky, “Or be one who just gives back a little? Or – do I want to be one who has done the most with what He’s given me?”
Bring friends and family with you for an action-packed Sunday, February 2. Beginning after the 9:30 services, you can participate in (or observe in laughter) the outrageous and quirky line-up of the 60 second in-it-to-win-it games! They’re perfect for any ounce of athleticism you may or may not have.
Tuesday Groups are a place where friendships are formed, life is shared with others, and our hearts are shaped by God’s life-changing truth. Wherever you are in your spiritual journey or stage of life you are always welcomed to join us as we seek to connect the dots between life and faith. Tuesday Study Groups are ALWAYS open to newcomers.
“It’s not what you have imagined. It is not as much time as you think. And it is more rewarding than you would ever believe.”In spite of some early hesitations, this is how Gary Becker sums up the role of being a deacon. Gary grew up in church, and after he and Stacey married, they were always involved “making ministry happen.”
We’ve created an entirely new mobile experience for members and attendees of Ward Church! Our new app connects to your existing myWARD account which makes it easy to sign up for events, serving opportunities or to make gifts. It also allows us to tailor your app content to you and your family.
