Club 56 Leadership Academy is a BRAND NEW program that we will be starting in 2014. This program is designed to teach and to encourage our 5th and 6th graders to be the spiritual leaders God designed them to be. Children that participate in this program will be responsible for organizing and executing services projects throughout the church and our community as well as preparing and leading a devotional or singing. CLUB 56 Leadership Academy meets the second Sunday of every month during the school year (August through May) from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the gap. The first hour of every meeting is designated as a worship time that is completely lead by our students (with the exception of the very first meeting in August). Various students will be responsible for leading the prayer, devotional thought for the day and some songs each month while a different student(s) is responsible for planning and leading that months service project.
The goal of this program is to inspire our kids to be the church leaders of tomorrow. We want our children to leave Kidside feeling well equipped to lead in Teenside and even in college. We want them to feel comfortable and confident that they can lead a weekly devotional with their friends from school, or in their college dorm room, or plan a service project for their families. The more practice at leadership our children get, the better equipped they are to lead their friends, families, and church groups.
