Elevate meets after life groups. Their lifegroup teacher will take the group to the restroom then walk them to Elevate. There is no need for parents to come take their kids from one to the other.
Please check your child in at the kiosk in the kids lobby or in the chapel as they enter Elevate.
Please enter the main door of the chapel. Your child’s name will be called. Then walk around the portable wall and your child will meet you at the exit. You will need to be prepared to present your security pick up sticker.
This large group kids gathering is designed with two main goals in mind. First is to teach fundamental principles of the faith that will help your child form a Biblical worldview. These principles are intended to counter the lies that our culture is striving to teach children. The second goal is to build meaningful relationships. Research shows that having these connections in a child’s home church is very important to helping them connect with God’s Word, apply it to the challenges of life, and develop a personal relationship with Jesus. We strive to create space for relationship with peers and adults to develop.
To help us reach the goals of Elevate, we are using Hyfi from Lifeway. This brand new program teaches 12 foundational truths, one each month, over the course of a year. That truth is built out with varying games, songs, lessons, videos, and Bible stories. This program is designed with lots of opportunity for kids to make connections and learn foundational Biblical Principles. You can learn more about Hyfi at the link above.
As they enter, the kids will receive a colored wristband which will indicate their group for the day. Yellow and green groups are for 1st-3rd grades. Red and blue groups are for 4th and 5th grades. Students participate in games, activities, and small group discussion with their group. Groups change each week, helping the kids to make more connections.
Once kids are checked into Elevate, they remain inside the walls of the Elevate space until check out. Security personnel are present in the building and procedures for safety are in place.
