Building strong relationships amongst peers and godly adult leaders
Our goal in Flight 4.5 is for kids to cultivate a love for praising God through our new live worship experience and develop their faith through large group teaching and small group discussion. We want our kids to love it so much that parents have to drag their children out!
So what's different about Flight 4.5?
Kids in 4th and 5th grade are no longer required to be checked out of Flight 4.5. Once the adult service is over kids in 4th and 5th grade are free to leave and find their parents. We believe that this helps them cultivate a sense of responsibility and also frees parents to pick up younger siblings. If you as a parent want your child to stay in the 4.5 room just make sure your child knows that and ask them to wait for you there.
Our live worship element helps bridge the gap between the Adventure Kidz ministry and Student Ministry. We believe that live worship cultivates an atmosphere that helps develop a stronger passion to worship God.
Each week children have the opportunity to pick a small group called a "Crew". They can choose the same Crew each week or they can try a new one. The Crews are not gender or age specific. We have an adult crew leader that will facilitate discussion and team building in Crew/small groups. There are games, discussion about God's word and the opportunity to get to know other 4th and 5th graders.
