"Jesus replied, 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind' This is the first and greatest commandment And the second is like it: 'Love your Neighbor as yourself'" - Matthew 22:37-39
Goal of the Ministry
The goal of INTENTIONAL 5 (I-5) is to equip, prepare and ignite the hearts of 5th Graders so they become intentional about loving God and loving others during the pivitol year between elementary and middle school.
What we do
In 1-5 we focus on getting them plugged into to each other and the church body. We do this through events just for 5th graders, including a hayride, sleepover (boys and girls seperate), Christmas service project, Jumpstreet, and more!! We also have guest speakers from the church body who come and speak to them which allows them to learn biblical truth from a variety of different people. Plus, each 5th grader who attends regularly will have a Secret Prayer Partner from the church who commits to praying for them and writing encouraging letters to them once a month.
Ultimately, I-5 is a place where kids learn how to love the Lord and love each other!!
Our next I-5 Mission will be all about serving others! First, we will be putting on a bingo day for the folks living at Westbrook Towers. This is a community of older people who aren't able to get out as much as they used to. So, we will bring some fun to them as well as use this as an opportunity to share the gospel!
Next, we will have some serious bonding time doing an escape room at 60 Minute Escape! This will challenge our ability to work as a team and listen to each other!
