Looking for past videos that you missed and need to catch up on?Large Group Devotional Videos 
This Week’s Large Group Devotional Video: 

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. 
 
Kids have the opportunity to earn awards and participate in special reward trips to places like the Indianapolis Children’s Museum, and Kings Island, by memorizing a weekly Bible verse, completing at-home Bible readings, and watching the lesson video each week. 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.
 
Print your own copy of the Parents Handbook 2020 for more in-depth information about Basics.

WHY IS CLUB GOING ONLINE? 

We want to provide the BEST programming we can in our current situation. If school changes or the schedules of our volunteers from Taylor University changes we can keep going. By having club online this fall, we can continue to have Basics and Basics Jr. consistently for all clubbers. 

WILL WE ALWAYS DO CLUB ONLINE?

Nope! Hopefully by spring, we can go back to normal Wednesday nights at 6:30pm. We love meeting at church.   

HOW WILL BASICS JR. WORK?   

4 year olds—2nd graders will have weekly videos uploaded to the Basics Jr. page as well as songs, lessons, Bible verses, and printable coloring pages. Each week leaders will call their clubbers to check in, listen to verses, and review that week’s lesson.

HOW WILL BASICS WORK?

3rd-6th graders will have a video meeting each week with their small group. Small group leaders will email the links directly to parents for accountability. Boy groups will meet from 6:30-7:10 pm. Girl groups will meet from 7:15-8 pm.  During the small group time they’ll play a game, say their verse, do a lesson, and pray. Additionally, there will be a short Bible Devotional video on this website—kind of like large group teaching time. This video will count as a part of qualifying for reward events in addition to the Bible readings and memory verses.
 
If your family does not have adequate internet access to video chat or if your child needs special accommodations, please register them and we will do our best to make Basics work in your context.
