What happens in Elevate?
Kids are challenged every Sunday in Elevate to trust God, make wise choices, and build lasting friendships. Here's what a typical morning in Elevate looks like.
Welcome: Each child is greeted at their classroom by their small group leader. Kids participate with their small group in an activity meant to introduce the one TRUTH, or bottom line, we want kids to walk away with and remember that morning.
Large Group Environment: Shortly after arriving, kids are moved to their large group environment where they hear the Bible story. We use videos, props, and characters for the story - anything that makes the Bible come to life. We also carve out time each week for kids to sing as loud as they want and tell God how much they love Him.
Small Group Environment: After participating in Large Group, kids travel back to their small group classroom where their leaders help them understand how the day's bottom line can fit into their everyday life. Small group leaders in Elevate are serious about having fun with kids and passionate about teaching the TRUTH. We want kids to see how God's word fits into their lives, to learn how to talk to Him, and to build friendships that will last. Every Sunday they connect with the same small group of kids and the same small group leader.
That way they get connected and we have the best chance to establish a
relationship that's going to matter when they need it most.
We use 252Basics Curriculum which is built around the Three Basic Truths:
1. Wisdom: I need to make the wise choice.
2. Faith: I can trust God no matter what.
3. Friendship: I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
The Three Basic Truths are amplified through 36 monthly virtues (such as kindness, generosity and faith) and 150 Bible stories. Every week there is a key TRUTH or bottom line that we drive home. It's the ONE THING we want kids to understand and grab onto during their hour in Elevate.

"Don't you see that children are God's best gift? the fruit of the womb his generous legacy? Like a warrior's fistful of arrows are the children of a vigorous youth.Oh, how blessed are you parents, with your quivers full of children! Your enemies don't stand a chance against you; you'll sweep them right off your doorstep."
Psalm 127:4 (The Message)
