PAK – Fall 2021

The PAK is a youth group for 4th, 5th, & 6th grade students to develop friendships and apply Biblical truths to life.

We had a blast this summer and the fun continues. We are learning about the book of Genesis.

  • 9-10am: A lesson on key chapters in the first book of the Bible, Genesis. We will learn this through story, role-play, games, art, etc. Each week we will apply one key concept to pre-teens lives. We will then repeat the story and application to each other and they will be challenged to tell you the story when they come home. We will send questions to encourage family discussion and a verse for them to memorize. (PAK room)
  • 10-10:30am: Game time (gym or outside)
  • 10:30-11:30am: During this time the PAK will have choices:
    1. Attend the church service with parents
    2. Have a snack, attend the kids’ large group singing and lesson in the Kids Quad, then move to the PAK room and practice telling the story with a PAK leader (this is for those whose parents are teaching in Kids’ Club or do not attend Bloomingdale Church)
    3. Be a leader-in-training for the younger Kids’ Club (5th & 6th only) (prerequisite: must have attended PAK for 6 months and be coached by Marina Riemenschneider or David Beard)
