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.

BASICS IS ABLE TO MEET IN PERSON STARTING MARCH 3: 
Basics will meet in person (masked and socially distanced) starting on March 3rd. We will keep an eye on Grant Co. COVID-19 numbers as well as Taylor University and state guidelines. Returning to virtual club will remain an option. Basics Jr. (4yrs-2nd grade) will continue meeting virtually at this time.

HOW WILL VIRTUAL 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 VIRTUAL 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.
