GAMELIFE uses sports and games to teach kids the big ideas of the Bible. It’s experiential learning at its best! Kids work through the Bible in three years, while having fun and making friends. Each week features a Game Zone, where kids experience God’s Word with an easy-to-learn game, the Discovery Zone, where kids explore Scripture, and the Life Zone, where kids exercise the truths they’ve learned and talk about application. For 1st-3rd graders: $30, includes workbook and t-shirt. Kindergarteners will do GameLife Jr., which is $20, which includes t-shirt and craft supplies.
Kindergarten-3rd Grade Elective
In Compassionate Kids, we teach kids how to be Jesus’ hands and feet to the world. Kids learn about the needs in our community and do hands-on projects to help. Last spring, kids made sack lunches for Bread of Life, assembled “busy bags” for kids through Solutions for Change, painted flower pots that were given to elderly people, wrote letters and decorated flag pillowcases for Operation Gratitude, and donated blankets and backpacks for foster youth. $20 materials fee. Questions? E-mail coordinators Jeanell Worrell or Kim Klimas.
4th, 5th and 6th graders will meet in the Surge Room for Surge nights. No cost – pre-registration is appreciated!
7th & 8th Graders
Our Junior High midweek will be on-campus during The Harbor, from 6:15-8:00. There is no pre-registration required.
CoupleTalk: Cracking the Code to Handling Conflict (6:00-7:30 pm)
Learn – and use – practical tools to manage disagreements, handle strong emotions, and repair your relationship when it’s been damaged. During the video sessions, you will learn to work through a conflict from “start” (approaching your partner) to “finish” (practical solutions that satisfy both). As a result, you’ll have better communication, feel closer to each other, and be able to resolve conflict faster! Hosted by Josh and Marlo Tucker. $15/person. (It is recommended, though not required, that people attend this class with their spouse.)
Financial Peace University (6:30-8:00 pm – runs Sept 20-Nov 15)
Nine-week class on money taught by America’s most trusted financial guru, Dave Ramsey. We all need a plan for our money. This class will walk you through the basics of budgeting, dumping debt, planning for the future, and much more. Join the millions of people who have changed their lives by discovering financial peace. Led by Brandon Cass. (No charge for the class, but materials must be ordered separately from daveramsey.com for $93.)
Ignite the Fire (6:30-8:00 pm)
Instead of asking, “How can I raise my kid to turn out right?” what if we asked, “What can I do to help my kid love Jesus more?” We’ll talk through practical steps parents can take as they guide their kids toward independence and adulthood. Led by local youth ministry veteran Michael Coffey and based on the classic book by Barry and Carol St. Clair. Ideal for parents of preteens and teenagers.
Raising Kids with a Faith that Lasts (6:00-7:30 pm)
Helping your child begin and grow their relationship with God is one of a parent’s greatest privileges. Discover how to use family fun, everyday conversations, and meaningful milestone markers to launch your child’s relationship with God. DVD-based series featuring some of today’s top experts-Dr. Tim Kimmel, Dr. Greg Smalley, Rev. Mark Holmen, and Larry Fowler. Facilitated by Josh & Linda Stewart. $10 fee for participant’s guide.
Single Moms: Emerge (6:00-7:30 pm)
