CIY Believe
to Apr 21

CIY Believe

Believe is a two day Middle School event that combines high energy games with incredibly relevant Biblical teaching. It exists to grow and shape the faith of 6th-8th students by helping them connect their stories with God's story.

Each session includes powerful dialogues by some of the best Jr. high speakers in the country, humorous and moving drama elements and time to reflect on the messages. Students meet throughout the weekend with their peers and adult leaders in small groups. This enables them to process what they've seen and heard to their daily experiences at school, home and with friends.

Believe's 2018 theme is "With", focusing on how Jesus is with us.
You can learn more here

Cost is $80 per student and includes admission, hotel rooms and transportation to and from SLCC to Holland, Michigan. A non-refundable deposit of $25 is due on February 28th. The full $80 is due by March 14th. 

Students will need to bring additional money to cover dinner on Friday and lunch & dinner on Saturday. Additional money may be brought to purchase merchandise at event.

Have you ever seen the hashtag #nofilter on a social media post? It's the idea that the picture has not been affected, changed or shaped by a filter. Though many posts claim to have #nofilter, all people young and old alike have a filter they view all of life through. The filter is faith. Your faith affects, changes and shapes how you see yourself, others and life. Faith is the filter your children and students will choose their thoughts, decisions and actions through. You're invited to join us and our parenting panel for a discussion on how to foster an authentic faith in your home.    

#nofilter! Josh tried making a cup of coffee with an Aeropress WITHOUT a filter. Yikes.

We believe that the two influences of church and home combined have a greater impact on your student's faith development. Their faith is vital because faith is the filter that students view themselves, God and others through. You're invited to join us and our parenting panel for a discussion on how to foster an authentic faith in your home. 

Childcare will be offered, but we need to adequately prepare, so please RSVP with the number of adults and children who will be attending with you!

Fifth to The Flood

Starting Wednesday, May 11th, graduating 5th grade students are invited to check out The Flood! We want them to become acquainted with the 6th-8th grade program before June 8th, when they will have graduated out of Kid's City and into The Flood!

The Flood is our 6th-8th grade student ministry; we seek to be a safe place where students can ask honest questions, grow in their faith and learn to follow Jesus more closely. 

The Flood meets at SLCC on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00. 
Registration is at the Gym entrance near the office.

We hope to make this a smooth transition for them. Please email Josh.
