"Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” (Luke 2:52, NIV)
252 for PreK-6th Grade
What’s 252 represent? It’s not our street address or the number of questions a 2nd-grader can ask in 20 minutes. Instead, everything we teach in 252 Kids is based on one of three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52.
I need to make the wise choice.
I can trust God no matter what.
I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
Our curriculum is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus.
Because we believe that parents are crucial to the spiritual growth of a family, 252 includes a Parent Cue with each series that can prepare parents for conversations they may have with their student and challenges them to make the most of their influence in their kid’s life.
XP3 Middle School exists to help middle schoolers experience three things: wonder for who
God is, discovery of who He created them to be, and passion for loving others. Everything we
offer is designed to help middle schoolers begin to take ownership of their faith through these
three basic truths:
- I will love God because He will never stop loving me.
- I will follow Jesus because He knows me better than I know myself.
- I will live out God’s story so others can know who Jesus is.
Because we believe that parents are crucial to the spiritual growth of a family, XP3 includes a Parent Cue with each series that can prepare parents for conversations they may have with their student and challenges them to make the most of their influence in their kid’s life.
Whether a student is walking in a growing relationship with Jesus or has no idea who Jesus is, we believe teenagers learn about Jesus best by hands on experiences. To make that happen, teenagers serve alongside our young adult and adult teams in every part of our church life. From serving coffee to stage setup or worship planning and production, high schoolers spend time seeing the love and ways of Jesus being modeled by the generations above them.
High School Community Groups for both the guys and the girls exist to help students grow in a relationship with Jesus Christ in a way that’s real and authentic. We hang out and have a lot of fun together, but we also spend time in the Bible each week. Then we have time to process everything we’re learning and see how we can apply it to our lives.
