Wednesday nights at Alpharetta Methodist are about more than just supper. Everyone in our church is invited to get involved. Children worship God through song in Children’s Choir and learn about the Word while making friends during Alpha Kids. The musically inclined among us gather to rehearse. Adults looking to grow through study come for Alpha Groups and CrossWalk. Youth grow spiritually at Life Groups. We’ll fill your stomach with a delicious meal, but God will feed your spirit.
The impact of Wednesday Night Supper (WNS) reaches beyond our doors. Every Wednesday, teams deliver meals to the homebound and package leftover food for shelters.
We are always looking for ways to serve you better. Last spring we conducted a survey that generated helpful feedback. We have worked hard to incorporate your ideas to better serve you.
First, we are adding commercial-grade salad bars to help not only make our salads more appealing and easier to access, but to allow us to provide the fresh and healthier choices many of you desire.
Second, we’re adding trays to make it easier to navigate the food lines without multiple trips. There will also be folks around to help!
Finally, we’re making it easier to purchase meals. Beginning this fall, you can register online each week or purchase a FastPass, good for a full year. For those purchasing an annual pass, we’ll offer an online, one-time payment option. You can now find the menus for the entire year posted here on our website so you can review them prior to making a decision. We’ll continue to take weekly reservations by phone through handy cards in the sanctuaries.The check-in process has also been streamlined.
WNS is 100% funded by your purchase of meals and made possible through the hard work of our five Sheepfeeder teams. Without you, we cannot continue to support our community and provide excellent evening programming for your family.
We are so appreciative to all who gave us feedback and continue to support this important ministry. Our time together on Wednesday nights is one more way to connect with the Body of Christ. We pray it will be meaningful to you and your family.
Wednesday Night Supper
An important part of being a family is sharing meals. From September through April we meet on Wednesday evenings for fellowship and supper. Dinner is served from 5:30-6:30p.m. in Trinity Hall.
After Wednesday Night Supper (6:45 p.m.), children in grades K-5 will gather for an interactive Bible lesson and games. Ever last Wednesday of the month, kids will participate in Kids on a Mission.
Nursery is available for all families from 6:15-9:15 p.m. Nursery is available for Children's Choir volunteers beginning at 5 p.m. Learn more about our nursery services here.
The Respite: A Place for Parents
Where does life meet faith? Wednesday Nights this fall, our pastors will lead a weekly gathering in the Vinebranch Chapel called CrossWalk. CrossWalk is designed for anyone who wants to know more about how to discover and develop a meaningful Christian walk. CrossWalk is at 6:45 p.m. in Vinebranch Chapel. No registration will be required, and all are welcome! Click here for details.
Many years ago one of the saints of the church had the vision to create a volunteer-led ministry to provide a meal ministry for our church community on Wednesday nights. Those who serve in this ministry of love are called Sheepfeeders. Today we have five Sheepfeeder Teams led by Karen Davidson, Carol Lail, Nancy Malone, Vera Snyder, and Gail Stephens. There are well over 150 people involved in our teams who serve on a rotational basis from September through May. Sheepfeeders are responsible for every aspect of providing our meals, serving an average of 400 meals each week, including dozens of meals that are prepared and transported to homebound persons in the community.
Because of the selfless service of our volunteers, not only do our folks get a good meal for a fair price, many people who might not otherwise have a meal are fed. Our teams are eager to serve and just as eager to welcome new team members. If you are looking for a fun and rewarding place to serve, we would love to make a place for you on a team this fall.
