One of those ages that often is forgotten in the church is what are now called tweens. This group ages 9-12 are just becoming teenagers and yet they are still kids in some ways. What a great time to help them explore who they are and what they believe as they prepare for the challenges of being a teenager. The Tween Group will meet Oct 15, 22, 29, Nov 5, 19, 26 at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church. It will start at 3:30 pm and go until 5:30.
The first part of the afternoon is called Warm Up. This will be ice breakers, getting to know each other and games. The second part will be using the curriculum Connect. Each Connect session starts with a video with topics like Creation, the Fall and Suffering.
After this we’ll Explore. It’s time to dig into relevant bible passages and ask some of the tough questions. After some mental gymnastics we will have Project time which gives the tweens a chance to build something that related to the days topic.
Our final piece is the Closing Ritual. The whole thing will run for 6 weeks with a break on Remembrance Day Monday. Depending on how things go we hope to continue another 6 week session in January. Below you will find a registration form that can be dropped off in the mailbox at Our Saviour’s or emailed in.
