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.
“Hi, I’m Hannah! I am an Elementary and Special Education major at Western. I grew up at a church in Puyallup and had been serving in their children’s ministry since 6th grade! I have been a small group leader on Western’s campus with Campus Christian Fellowship, and I’m currently the Vice President of CCF. I love all things Disney, drinking coffee, and collecting fun socks and decks of cards. But above all, I am passionate about Jesus, kids, and traveling...I especially love combining all 3 and serving on mission trips! I'm beyond excited to get to meet and know each of you!”
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 and 5th grader:
9:30 WORSHIP (Sanctuary)
Church Worship Service.
10:00 SOCIAL (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.
Next is an interactive Bible lesson that will help students learn stories and lessons from the Bible. Parents will receive a weekly email letting them know what we’re teaching. We’ll also give parents ideas on how to connect with your kids throughout the week in order to help the lesson stick with them longer. For more information on the current series, click here.
Team challenges, fun competitions, crafts, and snacks and more! This second hour is our main community time where we play, eat, and work together in a variety of ways. We'll do minute to win it games, board games, arts and crafts and other activities to build a sense of togetherness and community.
This usually involves 20-30 minutes of running around, playing team games and burning off energy before parents pick them up.
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.
12:00 Parent Pick Up
Students are dismissed!
