Wonderful Wednesday is an example of a small rural Appalachian congregation with a successful after school program. The program is designed to nurture the spiritual development of children in an impoverished area. It does this by increasing knowledge of the basic teachings of the Christian faith. It encourages character development and educational development of the participating students from the local elementary school. The program provides for different needs of the students. The program has adapted to deal with issues that arose from its success. The biblical, theological, and devotional principles behind the development of the program help volunteers ascertain whether their goals are being achieved. The students’ understanding of God, Jesus, and church is important to understand this achievement as well.
