LOFT 45 IS DESIGNED TO CAPTURE THE HEART, IMAGINATION, AND PASSION OF STUDENTS AT AN EARLIER AGE, WHICH IS WHY WE HAVE INTENTIONALLY PLACED A GREATER FOCUS ON THE FAMILIES OF 4TH AND 5TH GRADE STUDENTS!
One of the things we’re really excited about for this coming school year is our opportunity to continue to reach out to our 4th and 5th grade students and their families! Out of a desire to help kids grow in their faith, we give them a Sunday morning experience that is intended to meet their spiritual, physical, and relational needs.
REACHING OUT TO OUR STUDENTS
One of the ways we reach out to our students is by providing a slightly different structure to Sunday morning. Here’s what a typical Sunday will look like for your 4th grader:
9:30 WORSHIP (Sanctuary)
Church Worship Service.
10:00 PRE-LOFT (Classroom 5)
4th and 5th Grade Students are dismissed from the Worship Service 3 times a month in order to participate in an interactive time of community building, fun & play, arts & crafts and a Bible lesson. Students are NOT dismissed when our worship service has Prayers for Healing. We believe that these prayers are an important part of our church life…one which we want our 4th and 5th graders to be a part of. We also bring students back into the worship service at 10:30 when communion is scheduled.
After the worship service, students meet in "The Loft" (Classroom 5) for a crowd breaker designed to help them get to know one another and their leaders! Students will also head to the gym for a fun and active game intended to simply let them play and have fun!!
Kids head back to classroom 5 for an interactive Bible lesson that will help them learn stories and lessons from the Bible. You will receive a weekly email letting you know what we’re teaching. We’ll also give you ideas on how to connect with your kids throughout the week in order to help the lesson stick with them longer.
11:20 GROUP TIME
The goal of Group Time is to help students personally engage with the lesson they just heard. There will be hands on activities which will allow students to reflect, think, and respond to the lesson. Students will be divided into smaller groups in order to help them give voice to their thoughts. Our hope is that students would begin to learn how to talk about God and faith with a group of trusted friends and adults!
After group time, we'll re-gather all students in order to give a final encouragement for the day and to pray for them before they leave.
Students are dismissed!
