September through April
B.L.A.S.T. is our ministry for elementary students, and it stands for Bible Learning and Sharing Time. Our goal is to lead students to the hope of Jesus Christ in a safe, fun, and loving environment. Every activity, Bible study, and lesson is designed to show children that Jesus is the only way to eternal life, and we do it on a level that elementary students can understand.
On Sunday mornings, students go to the 3rd floor where they are involved in Bible Study, games, activities, and songs geared toward elementary students. The classes are grouped by grade, and the students will meet teachers who plan fun activities and Bible-based lessons to explore God's Word together.
Students are dismissed from the 8:15 and 10:45am worship services to go to their classes. For the Bible & Life classes at 9:45, the students go directly to their classrooms.
Elementary students meet in the Social Hall, Room 111, for their program. During this time, the lesson for the night is introduced through videos, games, or activities in both a large and small group setting. Students will discuss how to apply the daily Bible lesson to their own lives with their small group leaders.
The program finishes with worship and games that reinforce the lesson learned during large and small group time. Students are dismissed to their parents at 7:45.
