From the beaches to the mountains, big cities to national parks, your summer calendar might be filled with destinations. There are trips to help you get closer to family or to discover something new. There are vacations that help you get some much needed rest and relaxation.
But are you ready for a surprise?
God —and his work — does not go on vacation.
And, at First Wayne Street, our summer calendar is filled with opportunities for discipleship and fellowship.
We will launch a new worship series called “FWS Summer Playlist” in June. Throughout the series, we’ll be using Scripture and music to help set the stage for sermons on evangelism, loss, obedience, joy, relationships, worship, unity, and more.
Water bottle ministry
Visiting the downtown Fort Wayne Farmers Market on Saturday mornings? Our dedicated volunteers to provide refreshing water, free of charge, as a small gesture of kindness and fellowship. But our ministry is about so much more than just hydration. When you spot our friendly faces at the farmers market, we invite you to take a moment to stop by, say hello, and discover the vibrant happenings at First Wayne Street Church. We believe that true community is built on connection, and we’re passionate about creating a space where everyone feels welcome.
On July 8, the church will host its annual rummage sale as part of the kick-off for Three Rivers Festival. All items are donated, and proceeds benefit the children and youth ministries. Shop, volunteer — or both.
Picnic and ice cream social
July 15 will be another fun-filled night here at FWS! We will be having our annual Ice Cream Social before the 3RF downtown fireworks display! Events include a church picnic, entertainment and, of course, ice cream!
It’s time to rally for God. This summer, we will be partnering with Faith United Methodist Church for VBS. Youth and adults can volunteer in a variety of roles, as we help children grow in their faith through engaging, fun activities. VBS will be July 17 to 20.
