LOGOS is a four-part ministry integrated within a nurturing environment of Christian relationships for FPC members and those seeking to make FPC their church home. We invite everyone to read about LOGOS, pray about your participation in this ministry, and for the success of this exciting program. We believe that nothing is more important than a saving relationship with God through Jesus Christ and that we should all seek to be His disciples. The LOGOS ministry focuses this belief on the nurture of children and youth — helping them to develop into life-long believers and practicing disciples of Jesus Christ. The LOGOS Ministry strongly supports the commitment that each of us is a Child of God and should be treated with the kind of respect, love, and support that is expected by God’s Great Commandment. At the heart of a weekly LOGOS ministry are the Christian relationships that truly connect people and energize the nurturing of young people. In today’s world, LOGOS can offer young people the chance to enjoy a truly different experience…kingdom of God living.
LOGOS CARES & SHARES ~ To be good stewards, we believe in caring for God's creation and for one another. This year, LOGOS has adopted two projects that promote humanitarian and environmental efforts. Each week, jars will be available for collecting "change to make a change" in support of Heiffer International and Audubon's Pennies for the Planet.
During Sunshine Choir (grades 1 & 2) & Chorister Choir (grades 3, 4 & 5) participants: Learn about worship, prepare to lead worship services, are taught how to use their singing voices, play chimes, handbells & a variety of instruments, learn how to use the hymnal, and explore the joy of making music together!
Sunshine Choir: 4:00 - 4:40, Chorister: 4:45 - 5:30
The goal of recreation play is to experience great fun at no one’s expense. Recreation is our time to build relationships as we have fun sharing interests, hobbies, crafts and games with each other and with many adults from our congregation.
Table Time is our practice arena for what we learn throughout LOGOS. We celebrate relationships as the family of God around the table with a meal, conversation, and intergenerational friendships. Meals are served "family style", with children taking turns as "Hoppers and Moppers", serving and clearing the table. One or two adult “Table Hosts” dine with the same group of children for several weeks, building relationships, having fun, and reinforcing basic table manners. Weekly themes include March Madness, Italian Night, Birthday Blast, and more.
Table Time: 5:30
What is learned in Bible Study is taken with us everywhere. Children meet in grade-level groups to learn what the Bible says about who God is and who we are as Children of God. " Grow, Proclaim, Serve," our curriculum from Cokesbury, is a lectionary-based, graded study. Teachers work in pairs, adhering to First Presbyterian’s Child Protection Policy. Bible study is the last component of the evening, which sends us "out into the world" with God's message fresh in our hearts.
