Turbo Experience
(Kindergarten – 6th Grade)
 
Turbo Experience – Sundays @ 9:15 & 11 a.m. (Simultaneous with the adult worship) We have fun learning about God. This describes the worship that your kindergartener – 6th grader can experience on Sunday mornings. Turbo is a time of singing, games, multimedia, and so much more. Our goal is to teach your children Godly values, Biblical truths, character qualities, and strong morals. It is high energy with activities, singing, skits, interactive Bible Stories, and life examples.

***JUST FOR KIDS!!!! Each Sunday children earn points for bringing their Bibles, learning their memory verse, bringing friends, doing the take home lessons and other surprise ways. The points can be redeemed for various prizes in our Turbo-Mart Store.

KONNECT and KONNECT 5 (1st – 6th Grade)
 
KONNECT is the Wednesday night Bible Study that takes your child through the entire Bible (Genesis – Revelation) in a four year time frame.  KONNECT is open to all K- 4th graders and runs concurrently with the school schedule (September through May) each year. Children start together in a large group and then split up into small groups. In the small group time, Bible stories will come alive through hands-on craft projects, crazy games, and make-it-yourself snacks. The children will finish the night with their group leader for a time of review and prayer.
 
 
KONNECT 5 is for 5th and 6th graders. It is a combination of Bible studies and life skills as they enter those teenage years.
