"Jesus replied, 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind' This is the first and greatest commandment And the second is like it: 'Love your Neighbor as yourself'" - Matthew 22:37-39
The goal of INTENTIONAL 5 (I-5) is to equip, prepare and ignite the hearts of 5th Graders so they become intentional about loving God and loving others during the pivitol year between elementary and middle school.
In 1-5 we focus on getting them plugged into to each other and the church body. We do this through events just for 5th graders, including a hayride, sleepover (boys and girls seperate), Christmas service project, Jumpstreet, and more!! We also have guest speakers from the church body who talk to them on Wednesday nights. This allows them to learn biblical truth from a variety of different people. Plus, each 5th grader who attends on Wednesday night will have a Secret Prayer Partner from the church who commits to praying for them and writing encouraging letters to them once a month.
Ultimately, I-5 is a place where kids learn how to love the Lord and love each other!!
