SWAT means... Serving With Actions & Time
What happens in SWAT at Eastridge Community Church...
1. SWAT Lessons: (2nd & 4th Sundays-10:45 am)
The lessons in SWAT are based on real questions often asked by 10- to 12-year-olds. Your child will learn how to search the Bible for answers and build a faith foundation that guides wise choices. The SWAT teachers will help your student plunge into the Bible and find answers to big questions about relationships, faith and choices.
2. SWAT Serving Opportunities: (1st and 3rd Sundays)
Time to put God's Word into action! During the first and third Sunday of each month, your child will be allowed to serve in Adventureland or E-town. This will give your child an opportunity to learn how to serve others and play an active role in the body of Christ. Some of life's most valuable lessons become relevant only when kids have to apply them.
3. Building Relationships with Others:
SWAT is a great place for your child to meet new faces and grow in his/her relationship with old friends. When the SWAT teachers meet with the students, the lesson includes a special "Community Time." The kids will enjoy simple refreshments and chat about their week. At the end of the SWAT lessons, students will circle up for closing prayer and celebrate God's faithfulness.
