Go Groups are a fun and transformative Wednesday night gathering that trains kids from 3rd – 5th grade to get involved in ministry through hands-on experience. Children who participate in Go Groups are pursuing a relationship with Jesus, and they’re committed in the same way that they’d be committed to a sports team. Go Groups meet Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00 PM during the school year. Contact Loretta Bushlack with questions.
REGISTER ONLINE or download the Go Group Application form. Registration is open through September 30.
Who can participate in Go Groups?
Go Groups are for 3rd-5th graders who demonstrate a desire to follow Jesus, reflect it in their behavior, and are ready to begin serving in ministry.
To participate in these ministry teams, children and parents must demonstrate ongoing commitment and full engagement, just as they would on a sports team. In addition to Christlike behavior at home, church and school, Go Groups expectations include regular devotions, scripture memory, and regular attendance on both Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings. Just like in a sports team, leaders or kids who don’t meet these team expectations may result in dismissal from the team.
