Now that the 6th graders are a part of the middle school ministry, they are invited to complete their final Basics notebook this fall semester on Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm. We’ll go at an accelerated pace and launch them out of kids ministry and into youth. Qualifying 6th graders may come on all reward events. 6th graders should still register as a normal Basics clubber. 
Basics: Fast Track
Our purpose is to see Basics clubbers grounded in the basics of the Christian faith. We do this through large group and small group Bible studies, relationships with their college student leaders, Bible memorization, and Scripture reading. This high energy club is a great chance for kids to begin studying theology and ask questions! 
Kids have the opportunity to earn awards and participate in special reward trips to places like the Indianapolis Children’s Museum and Crazy Pinz in Fort Wayne. Reward trips are earned by memorizing a weekly Bible verse and completing at-home Bible readings. Our small group Bible studies, written by a team from UCC, go along with the New City Catechism exploring the meaning of each doctrinal point in depth.
