Outbreak has been specifically designed for your 5th and 6th grader! We program our ministry in a way that is fresh and new with a rotation of learning, becoming, enjoying, and serving.
Purpose: Understanding who God created you to be and become in Christ
On this week we will focus on a message from Scripture, games, and special activities. Our focus this year is the Story of God throughout the Old and New Testament.
“The scriptures point toward Jesus” John 5:39
Purpose: Using your talents to glorify God
The second rotation involves workshops based around helping students and find things they are passionate about. Take a look at Outbreak Workshop Ideas to help us in any way you can!
“You are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned long ago.” Ephesians 2:10
Purpose: Enjoying who you are in Christ
We will continue our series from “LEARN nights” and play some fun games like kickball, four square, dodgeball, tag, and have some free time to enjoy everything God has given us.
“[Your] trust should be in God, who richly give us
all we need for our enjoyment.” 1st Timothy 6:17
Purpose: Showing Christ’s love in serving
The students will do acts of love and kindness towards others during this week. We will play games together and then do a service project together (such as baking cookies for care packages, making fleece blankets, cards to military or nursing home patients, or gathering items for the food pantry). Unless otherwise noted, these activities will take place at church. In October, we will go to Dollar Tree to buy gifts for Operation Christmas Child (you can find more info at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ). Each student is asked to bring $5 and we will need drivers for our trip.
“God has given each of you a gift from his great variety
of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.” 1 Peter 4:10
The first Sunday of each month, 5th-6th graders will be in the service with their families for worship and communion.
All remaining Sundays, they will have Sunday School beginning at 10:30am in rooms 244/245!
