FAMILY LIFE MINISTRIES
BASECAMP

Sundays @ 9 and 11 | Wednesdays @ 6:30

Basecamp Preschool centers on giving preschoolers a first impression of their loving heavenly Father. Everything we teach our preschoolers is based on one of three simple, but powerful, truths:

  • God Made Me
  • God Loves Me
  • Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever
A typical day in Basecamp includes:

Sign-In: Sign in your child in the preschool area right off the main lobby before service begins. Here you will receive a warm welcome and answers to any questions you may have.

Large Group: The Basecamp Preschool Large Group experience includes worship with your child’s peers and a bible story video

Small Group: Your child will have a chance to play games and engage in activities to introduce and reinforce the information learned from the weekly bible story.

Pick-Up: After service pick up your child from their classroom, but don’t forget the security tag which ensures your child can only leave with you..

Because you are the greatest spiritual influence on your child, Basecamp provides tools you can use at home to reinforce the lessons during common daily activities. Parent Cue Cards are available at the front desk of the preschool or on the Parent Cue app. They outline the current lesson focus and the bible stories taught each Sunday.

EXPEDITION KIDS

Sundays @ 9 and 11 | Wednesdays @ 6:30

Expedition Kids is an environment designed specifically to communicate God’s truth to children in the ways that they learn best. The language, activities, group setting, and leaders all work together to grow your child’s faith in ways that are relevant to them

A typical week in Expedition Kids includes:

Sign-In: Sign in your child in the Elementary lobby before service begins. Here you will receive a security tag that ensures your child can only leave with you.

Family Worship: We believe that worship is done best as a family! Your child will participate in our worship service and be released before the message.

Large Group: The Expedition Kids Large Group experience includes a review of our monthly virtue, stage games, and Biblical storytelling.

Small Group: Your child will have a chance to debrief the Large Group by digging into engaging activities with their peers.

Pick-Up: Afterward, kids have some free time to play, explore, and participate in friendships until service is over and you arrive to pick them up.

Because you are the greatest spiritual influence on your child, Expedition Kids provides tools you can use to build up your child at home:

God Time Cards are take-home lessons and activities for the children designed specifically to reinforce our lesson for that week. These are available in the check-in area.

Parent Cue Cards are given out at the beginning of each month or on the Parent Cue app. They outline that month’s virtue and the bible stories we’ll be teaching from. You can take the lesson home by using recommended talking points during family activities.

ELEVATE YOUTH (MS)

Sunday Study @ 9am Wednesdays @ 6:30

New school, friends, puberty, peer pressure, social media – your child is facing so many challenges for the very first time and through all the chaos, your middle schooler is discovering how to solve the new problems they face. This is a scary phase of life for teens! At Elevate, we want all of our students to know that they can make a real difference in their world by having a life-changing relationship with Jesus and sharing that relationship with their friends.

Connected To Caring Adults
We want every student in our ministry connected to at least 2 adult mentors that can speak truth into their life. This happens through small groups that meet within our ministry during our meeting times. Students are split up by grade level and gender to meet with adult leaders.

The Big 3
Three things that we want every middle school student to understand and practice in their own life before they move beyond 8th grade:

  • I will love God because He will never stop loving me.
  • I will follow Jesus because He knows me better than I know myself.
  • I will live out God’s story so others can know who Jesus is.
