COMPONENTS OF THE PROGRAM
Dinner— This will be a chance for youth to come fellowship over a meal.
Bible Study- We use a varied curriculum that covers issues that directly relate to middle school. We focus on character, friendships, peer pressure, our walk with Jesus, how to support one another in good times and bad.
Games - We create a place to build unity and a strong relationship among the entire group. Games are an integral part of this. Whether it is fly swatter hockey, minute to win it relays, or other zany games, everyone is a part of a team.
Wrap Up/Prayer—We will end with a time of reflection of the night and learning different techniques to meditate and pray. This is where the youth may share any joys/concerns they are facing.
Service Project – We will be participating in at least one service project a year. It is our goal that youth will gain a desire to help others and see they are serving as the hands of Christ.
Lock-in/Retreat – Will include Games, prizes, craft, pizza, movie and breakfast will be included in the night!
Special Nights/Outings—Several nights throughout the year we offer special events such as a bonfire, tye-dying, bowling, sledding, or Mardi Gras game nights.
