Big Wednesday & Small Groups--Wednesday, October 17--for 7th-12th grade--Big Wednesday is for students in 7th-12th grade and it includes Open House, Church Dinner, and Small Groups. Open House is supervised free-time in gym and youth area. It begins at 3:00 for high school students and at 5:00 for middle school students. Church Dinner is for all ages and is from 5:30 to 6:15. Dinner is $5 for youth. Small Groups begin at 6:15 and go until between 7:30 and 7:45. At Small Groups there is time for Bible study, prayer, group bonding, and discussion. This week all groups will continue their new studies: Middle School groups will continue "Rooted" which will help students discover that while many things in their life will change, God never will and High School groups will resume "Flipped" on how encountering God will completely change their life. We have 11 different groups divided by grade and gender. Pick up is between 7:30 and 8:00.
Club 56--Thursday, October 18--3:30-5:30pm--for 5th-6th grade--Club 56 is our weekly fellowship and discipleship program just for 5th & 6th grade students. It meets on Thursdays from 3:30 to 5:30. At Club 56 there is time for hanging out, games, a message, break out discussion groups, icebreakers, and snacks. Students may come as early as 3:30 for free-time and programming begins a little after the ECMS bus arrives around 4:00pm. We will finish our message series called "Rooted" this week. In this series we will discover that although so many things in life are subject to change, God never changes and in the middle of changing times, God can keep us rooted. Club 56 is for ALL students in 5th-6th grade.
Deeper--Saturday, October 20--7:00-11:00pm--for High School--This month's Deeper will take place on a Saturday. Deeper is our monthly program for high school students that are wanting to go deeper in their relationship with God and as an intentional Christian community. At Deeper there is time for worship through music, group study, individual devotion, mission focus, leadership, and group bonding.
Sunday School--Sunday, October 21--10:00-11:00am--for 5th-12th grade--We have 2 groups that meet (one for middle school and one for high school). The middle school group will be discussing the book "My Future" by Mark Oestreicher & Scott Rubin and the high school group will be discussing the book "Life is ____." by Judah Smith. Youth Sunday School is a great time of fellowship and spiritual growth and there are several adult groups that you could go to while your child is with us.
Koinonia--Sunday, October 21--for 7th-12th grade
--Our new Sunday youth fellowship program, called "Koinonia" (which is Greek for "Christian fellowship"), continues this Sunday.
