BACK TO SCHOOL: WHAT TO EXPECT THIS FALL with our next-gen ministry

The transition from Summer to Back to School can be difficult, but if you know what to expect it can be an easy transition! As a parent, we know that your life can be frantic at times. We want your Sundays to be a place of peace and effortlessness! You can be at peace knowing that your child or teen is surrounded by caring individuals who want to instill and influence your child with Godly Principles.


Here's what to expect in the Children's Ministry:


In the Children's Ministry we use the Orange Curriculum to instill three relational motives:


Wonder: Move kids to love God by inciting wonder


Discovery: Move kids to love life by provoking discovery


Passion: Move kids to love others by fueling passion


Our Pre-K Curriculum for Fall:


August: "Treasure Hunt"

Bottom Line: The Bible is Better than Gold | Psalm 119:72


September: "Count With Me"

Bottom Line: God Made Everything | Genesis 1:31


October: "Super Kids"

Bottom Line: God Can Help Me Be Brave | Deuteronomy 31:6


OUR ELEMENTARY CURRICULUM FOR THE FALL:


August: "Mission Control: Follow the Flight Plan"

Bottom Line: When you learn about God, it's easier to follow Him | 2 John 6


September: "Trek: An Adventure in Trust"

Bottom Line: You can trust God no matter what | Proverbs 3:5


October: "Talent Show: Brave the Stage"

Bottom Line: You can do what you should, even when you don't know what will happen next | Joshua 1:9


HERE'S WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE TEEN MINISTRY:


We are wrapping up our series called, "Through the Fire" a series on the importance of surrounding ourselves with the right type of friends, who are not drawing us away from God but rather drawing us to God. Furthermore, we are trying to inspire the students to not only surround themselves with those type of friends, but rather be that type of friend themselves. August is an exciting time for teen ministry as we get prepared for Tribe season in September. This month will have a lot of surprises when it comes to series topics and guest speakers, so parents make sure your teens stay connected and involved - as we live out our call to see lives changed by the power of Jesus Christ.

middle school change by dan scott

I can’t say I feel old enough, but it’s true: we have a child in middle school. A new school. A new chapter. A whole new world. And as much as we sometimes feel like a deer in the headlights, thankfully, we’re not on our own during this transition to middle school. We have experts—parents, teachers, friends—around us who are already giving us insight into the middle school mind. They are people who’ve been there, know what we’re going through, and can help us along the way. Here’s some of what we’ve been learning.

YOUR KID WON'T MEASURE UP THIS YEAR, AND THAT'S WONDERFUL BY BRAD GRIFFIN

As summer comes toward an end and the prospect of the school year looms close, I start to feel a whole host of emotions.

Gratitude for what summer has meant for our family and usually some let-down about what it didn’t mean.

Welcoming some more rhythm in our weeks but lamenting the loss of later bedtimes and relaxed schedules.

This back-to-school season you might be feeling some of these things, too. And like me, as you look ahead to the new year, you’re wondering what kinds of challenges and discoveries await your kids this year. Wondering what will happen in their friendships. Wondering how they will grow—physically, spiritually, and a host of other ways—over the next ten months.
