JR. HIGH GROUP
Understanding the times we live in is vital for everyone who believes in Christ. We live in a world of competing ideas - many in direct opposition to Christianity.
Worldview is a curriculum tailored to teaching youth to know and to be able to defend the Christian worldview point.
The curriculum is provided by Summit Ministries of Manitou Springs, Colorado and is taught to 6th through 8th grade youth.
Worldview Junior High group meet on Sunday mornings in the Family Life Center portion of the church from
10:00-10:45 am and on Wednesday (during AWANA) starting at 6:30pm.
Summit Ministries also provides an intense, weeklong training opportunity for high school and college age youth at the Summit headquarters in Manitou Springs. This training, as well as with the "Understanding the Times" curriculum used by the junior high, teaches youth to think critically by exposing them to different world viewpoints. These viewpoints are then compared to the Biblically-based Christian world viewpoint.
The strengths of a viewpoint based on the Bible become clear when the comparisons are examined. Areas studied are creation, communication, moral issues, leadership, and politics and how ideas, true or false, impact each of these topics.
Like the men of Issachar, who understood the times and knew what Israel should do -- I Chronicles 12:32 -- we need to understand our times and know what we should do.
