They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
The LOGOS Ministry at FBC is a weekly intergenerational experience for ages 3 through 18 that creates an arena where all ages, together, can learn about, experience, and practice the art of Christian relationships, which, we believe, is critical for developing life-long disciples. The One rule of LOGOS is “Everyone is a child of God, deserving of love and respect.” LOGOS teaches how God will use us to change the world!
LOGOS at FBC
LOGOS has been a part of FBC’s ministry for 25 years! Our long-standing Biblically-based mid-week program for children ages 3 through senior high is as much fun for them as it is for the adult participants!
During this time of Covid-19, we will continue LOGOS with weekly sessions while practicing social distancing and wearing masks. We are taking 1st through 12th grade and dividing them into four groups. Each of these small groups will meet in person at FBC from 5-6pm on Wednesdays once a month. Every Wednesday there is a live-streamed Bible lesson from 5-5:20pm that can be found on the FBC YouTube Channel and will feature the in-person group. Following that lesson they will either have a Worship Skill, Recreation or Family Time Activity from 5:20-6pm so they experience the four parts of LOGOS. There will not be a meal or singing this year, but we will use technology to create fun interactive worshipful experiences! Lil LOGOS, age 3 through kindergarten, will be virtual this year with a posted lesson and song. Please listen for LOGOS Event Days where we will fellowship together either outdoor or with virtual activities for the family! These LOGOS Event Days are open to all!
In past years, children are at LOGOS from 4:15-7:30pm with a snack and meal. This year they are only at LOGOS from 5-6pm without food so we are waiving the usual fees of $80 semester and asking for a $5 monthly donation for an activity kit. When you register your child for LOGOS, they will be assigned their once a month LOGOS in-person days and your family will be put on a list to receive monthly Faith Activity kits put together by their LOGOS leaders!
*The LOGOS CARE team will continue to listen to CDC guidelines and local reports to keep all of our participants and leaders safe. We will keep you informed on decisions to go back a phase or to move forward to an in person LOGOS in the future.*
There are four parts to the LOGOS Weekly Ministry Model:
1. Bible Study – Bible Study nurtures youth and children into intelligent, obedient, and biblically-informed disciples. In grade-level groups, each LOGOS class uses a curriculum that is designed to meet their unique needs and learning capabilities.
2. Worship Skills – Worship is essential and central to the Christian community. On Wednesdays during Worship Skills, young people learn about worship and prepare to lead in the Sunday morning service of worship. On almost any given Sunday, in fact, you are likely to see our children and youth singing, bell or chime ringing, reading Scripture, acting, or serving as an acolyte.
3. Recreation Play – Recreation Play allows everyone to experience great fun at the expense of no one else. Our children and youth participate in games and active play, do crafts, or experience the hobby or special interest of a member of the congregation. When we reveal ourselves in play, we strengthen friendships, and when conflicts occur, we practice our Child of God theology.
4. Family Time – Family Time provides a joyous, intergenerational celebration over a shared meal as our young people experience being part of the family ofGod. The children and youth are assigned to tables along with one or two adults who act as “table parents.” The group around the table becomes a family as they share meals together throughout the year. Food is served family style. Conversation is purposeful. Life is celebrated!
The commitment of adult LOGOS leaders makes the LOGOS Ministry happen. Please contact Director Michelle Wiggins to discuss service and leadership opportunities. Leaders are called according to their interests and gifts by the LOGOS leadership team.
We are proud to announce our partnership with GenOn Ministries, who creates an intentional arena where children, youth and adults, together, can learn about, experience and practice the art of Christian relationships.
