As believers we are given the exciting opportunity to live side by side with unbelievers in our neighborhoods, schools, jobs, families, and activities for the purpose of being a light for Christ. The relationships we build often provide us with gospel-focused opportunities to not only live out our faith but to then share more personally about our relationship with Christ, who He is, and why he came. Some people call this relational evangelism. In the same way that God has placed your family in your neighborhood, schools, jobs, he has uniquely placed our church in the middle of Mayfield Heights for the purpose of reaching our community for Christ. Our revamped summer outreach program has this at the heart of it.


Get excited to be part of our first annual Kidz Blast: Best Week of the Summer held June 8th -12th from 9 am to noon!


This unique program is designed for kids entering Kindergarten thru 6th grade and replaces our former VBS program with a greater emphasis on outreach and building gospel-focused relationships while offering kids a chance to learn or grow in a specific skill area. Each child will select one skill area to participate in when they register. Skill areas could include things such as soccer, martial arts, cake decorating, cooking, cheerleading, robotics, etc. Available leadership in each area will determine which of these skills will be offered this year.


Our theme this year is “Press On” as we learn lessons from the life of Paul and teach kids about how they were created for a relationship with Christ and how that impacts every part of our life. A high-energy pep rally will start each day, setting the theme and focus of our learning. A majority of the morning will be spent in skill groups, while coaches build natural relationships with the kids as they teach skills, thereby opening the opportunity for these coaches to share personal testimonies related to each day’s Bible lesson and theme. We will also be offering opportunities for parents to interact with volunteers for the purpose of building relationships. The week will end with a fun opportunity for parents to see what their kids have learned during the week.


Here is your opportunity to volunteer to be part of this exciting week! Please prayerfully consider how God has gifted you and how he might want to use you in the life of a child! We will have an informational meeting on Sunday, March 15 immediately after the worship service in the Fellowship Hall. We’ll explain in more detail what this week of Kidz Blast will look like, we'll share the many types of volunteers we'll need, and answer any questions you may have, while also giving you the chance to indicate how you’d like to serve.  We need many adult and teen volunteers to use the gifts and skills God has given them to make this week a dynamic opportunity for gospel outreach!


If you are a parent of a Kindergarten or elementary child we encourage you to already begin praying for children around you– neighbors, classmates, extended family – that you can invite this summer. Registration materials will be available in early May for this free event. If you have any questions prior to the meeting please contact Bobette Hatteberg () or Dawn Alioto ().
