CIY BELIEVE is a two-day event specifically designed for students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades. It is intentionally crafted in ways that will engage middle school students through tactile, epic games and activities coupled with Interactive teaching, engaging worship, and small group interaction.
Many things can cause a middle school student to become lonely. Anxiety, sin, depression, distorted identity, rejection, self-worth, abandonment, even technology plays a role. But God teaches us that relationships are a key in life. A relationship with Jesus is where life really come from – eternal life. And if Jr. high students have a distorted view of how relationships work here on earth, they’ll have a mistaken view of how a relationship with Jesus works.
This year’s Believe tour will help these students know exactly what it means to have a relationship WITH Jesus.
WITH – it’s a common word, but when spoken in the context of a relationship with Jesus it has such a deeper meaning. By focusing on Matthew 28:20 and exploring the idea of a relationship “WITH” Jesus. Believe will help middle school students discover how to worship God through a right and faithful relationship with Him.
This is an event you won't want your student to miss! A weekend like this is not only an investment in your student knowing the bible better but it can also be the single best way to connect them in peer and mentor relationships that matter.
