For the Lakeside Leader
Children between the ages of four and seven are invited to join the Slave Lake Wesleyan church (SLWC) for a new program called L.A.U.N.C.H. It is held every Wednesday from 4-6 p.m. at the church and includes supper for the kids at 5:30.
The meaning of LAUNCH is to love, accept, unleash, nourish, comfort and heal. This program is put into place to show love and kindness to children in the area.
Pastor Peggy Yetman and other church volunteers are in charge of running the program. They all say they do it because they love God and want to show others love who are in need of it. Attending LAUNCH, you would participate in different crafts and games set up by the volunteers. Another program Pastor Peggy has set up in the church is called Dream, Discover, Reach, Encourage, Activate and Mentor. It’s for children ages 8-12 and is held Friday nights from 7-8:30 p.m. Similar to LAUNCH, DREAM has different games and crafts for the kids to partake in.
SLWC has weekly services on Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m., followed by a light snack and refreshments. Lunch is also served on Sundays in mid-afternoon for families. The church’s motto is ‘Reaching Out, Bringing Hope’ and through both these programs they are able to do just that.
