Encounter (grades 6-8) meets on Sundays @ 6:30 PM
When we look at the world around us, it doesn't take long to realize that having good relationships with people is extremely important. Sixth through eighth graders are at a critical point in their young lives. They are learning how to effectively relate to others. This is an important skill that needs to be developed and shaped. Jesus is the perfect model to use as a standard for teaching relational skills.
WHAT We Teach
We teach the Bible. From it we learn about how Jesus lived, how He interacted with other people, and how He wants us to relate with Him.
HOW We Teach
Our class each week consists of a practical lesson combined with fun and games. While Bible reading is a part of each session, we use activities that are designed to emphasize key lesson ideas and values. Activities include dramas, skits, and games. And while the lessons have important, life-long impact, the methods are fun and exciting, and no two lessons are alike!
WHY We Teach
We have no greater purpose than to teach young people about the love of our heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ. While learning about relationships with people is important, to develop a life-long relationship with Jesus is the most important lesson of all.
