This happens through a three-step process:


By bridging the foundation of the Christian faith to real life, we help preteens move from concrete learning to abstract thinking and application.


We help preteens develop Christ-centered relationships that will help them grow in their faith and live out God-created community.  


Jesus was a servant and calls us to be the same. We put others' needs ahead of our own by giving time and resources to each other, our community, and beyond.
