CIY: Believe
to Apr 28

CIY: Believe


Believe is a two day Middle School event that combines high energy games with 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 2019 theme this year is “I AM” and will help students explore their identity in Christ. The idea of identity is a universal struggle. Every generation wrestles with it. Jr. high students sit at a pivotal moment in their lives where they are constantly asking the question “Who am I?” A student can’t truly know who they are until they know who God is. And this year CIY’s Believe tour will help Jr. high students understand what it means to find their identity in God.

Cost is $85 per student and includes admission, hotel rooms and transportation to and from SLCC to Holland, Michigan. Students will need money for 2 meals on the road and have the option of purchasing merchandise at the 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.

#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!
