WHAT IS BASIC ELEMENT? Kids love life! They love to have fun. They love to engage and experience everything they possibly can. We love this about them and we meet them with their excitement each week in Basic Element! This is a ministry for kids that take place during our worship experiences on Sunday mornings (9:30 & 11:15am). We teach the truths of scripture and celebrate the life of Jesus in a high energy, creative way that keeps them wanting to come back!
WHAT TO EXPECT : When walking into Basic Element expect to be woken up by energetic music, flashing lights, and plenty of game consoles to keep every child occupied until the “show” starts. Many group games are incorporated into the Basic Element experience along with live game-specialist and prizes. We honor the child’s time spent in Basic Element by going above and beyond each week to present a thrilling experience for the children!
STAY ENGAGED: Directly after each service we host “Parent Time”. This is a time that parents are given a take home handout containing the lesson taught, along with a weekly memory verse to study with your child.

There’s just something about a great Christmas movie that no matter how you’re feeling, after you watch them you can’t help but get into the Christmas spirit. Whether it’s—
“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” – Elf
“Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can't see.” – The Polar Express
Or even the classic, “I Triple-Dog-Dare you!” – A Christmas Story
As God’s Son, Jesus deserved a palace with a throne, complete with servants waiting on His every need or desire. Yet for Jesus, it wasn’t about the lap of luxury or the fame. Jesus came for a different reason. He came to save us and rather than being served, He chose to serve others.
God is the only God. God is one of a kind with no beginning and no end. And everything God has created is unique and one of a kind. Each animal is not only different from the other species, but also different from other like animals. No Zebra has the exact same patterns of stripes. Each monkey has its own temperament. Each sparrow sings a slightly different tune.
When you walk into a room and look around do you notice what you need to notice? Have you ever wondered why there are some people that can see things that other people just don’t see? It seems like some people have this knack for looking around a room and noticing things. What if it’s an ability that has more to do with being trained to open your eyes instead of simple natural ability? But when it comes down to it, it’s not just about training yourself to see what’s around you; rather, it’s doing something about what you’ve seen.
Sometimes it’s easy to know the wise choice. You probably know by now that a healthy breakfast of fruit, yogurt, and granola is a wiser choice than the greasy, fast food goodness of a sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit. You know, in this case, that the healthy choice is the wise choice. But what happens when the wise choice isn’t as easy to spot?
This summer we’ll be spending June and July discovering more about what the Bible has to say about conviction — standing for what’s right, even when others don't.Lots of people have conviction, but often when they act with conviction they come across as arrogant or smug. But that’s not what conviction is about at all. It’s not about what a person thinks is right because it’s too easy to become convicted about the wrong thing. Conviction has to be rooted in something deeper and more dependable than a personal opinion. It needs to be rooted in Scripture and what God says is right. And often it’s not even just standing for something that’s right; it’s also about standing for something that’s right in the right way. And that takes some practice, especially because standing for what’s right and showing conviction, may not win any popularity contests.

There’s something about the things that we say that kind of stack up one way. Then there’s the way we live, or the reality about certain situations that stack up another way. If those all line up, there’s strength and balance like a dependable tower. When what we say lines up with what we do, people know they can trust us, because, like a strong tower, our lives are built with integrity.
This month and Basic Element we are learning the virtue of peace through our theme “Conflict Kitchen.” Our main idea for the month is that peace is part of God’s character. He wants us to reflect peace in our relationships with others. Peace is proving you care more about each other than winning an argument.
This month in Basic Element our students are discovering the virtue of kindness! We will be teaching:
