Children (K-4th grade) and students (5th-12th) experience a fun, encouraging environment designed specially to help them move closer to God through Jesus — while parents and adults of any age can engage in teaching and round table discussions, workshops, or small groups. Everyone is welcome!

Pre-K
There are early childhood classes (nursery to age 5) for children of parents attending any of the MIdweek programs.

Kids experience a fun, encouraging environment designed specially to help them grow in their faith. Through large-group teaching, small group conversations with skilled leaders, and age-targeted tracks like art, drama, and team-building games, kids increase their biblical knowledge and build confidence in their faith.

7-8:30pm

High School (9th-12th)

WHY: We need SIMPLE opportunities to CONNECT - to make friends - to build relationships.

NO homework, No special planning, just come and encourage each other!

Yes, this is a fantastic time to join together with insights from Mescelle Kolb, a Speaker, Author and Life Coach. Most women come to a crisis point in their life, when they question who they have become and what is their purpose. Not only will Meschelle help us with life direction and goals but how to create a plan that identifies areas out of balance and help us get organized. This day session will allow God’s Word to define you! More to come, watch for the invite.
