252 Xtreme is designed to nurture the whole child by creating a safe place to learn about Christ, the importance of worshipping Him and the joy of fellowship with believers. Join us as we embark on this journey together in faith.
Sunday Nights 4:30 – 6:45pm
Starts September 11, 2016
The 252 Xtreme program builds intergenerational relationship between young people and caring, Christian adults through a four-part weekly agenda that includes:
Bible study nurtures youth and children into intelligent, obedient and biblically informed discipleship. In grade level groups, each 252 class uses a curriculum that is designed to meet their unique needs and learning capabilities.
Worship is essential and central to the Christian community. In Worship Skills young people learn about worship and prepare to lead in the Sunday morning service of worship. This is typically done through singing, bell, or speaking choirs, drama or movement and dance.
Recreation Play allows 252 young people to experience great fun at the expense of no one else. They participate in games and active play, do crafts, or experience the hobby or special interest of a member of the congregation. When we reveal ourselves in play, we strengthen friendships and when conflicts occur, we practice our Child of God theology.
Family Time provides a joyous, intergenerational celebration of personhood over a shared meal as 252 young people experience being part of the family of God. Young people are assigned to tables along with one or two adults who act as table parents. The group around the table becomes a family as they share meals together throughout the year. Food is served family style. Conversation is purposeful. Life is celebrated.
