Wednesday 6:30 - 7:50pm

August - May

Envisioning the Christian life as a race, our Olympian program features the Olympic theme and urges children 3 years old through 5th grade to “go for the gold” in their pursuit of godliness.

Join us for Open House on August 28 to learn more!

 

Using a variety of New and Old Testament stories, we teach Biblical foundations in Christian growth, as well as desired character traits like honesty, self-control, kindness, sharing, and forgiveness. Parent resources are also built in to help parents take a step into true discipleship with their own children.

Weekly program elements include:

 

  • Bible Lessons

    A series of Bible lessons to teach key truths of the Bible while also drawing specific events and people into the overall arc of the Gospel to show that the Bible truly is one story. We will also examine the character of key Bible figures, as well as character traits that flow from the pages of Scripture into the daily lives of children.

  • Scripture Memory

    Carefully selected Scripture verses packaged to help students connect truths of the Bible to their daily lives

  • Small Group Time

    This time is designed into the weekly meeting to allow our caring volunteers to build relationships with your children. In their small group time, they talk about the application of the lesson, share prayer requests, and are encouraged to continue making progress in their spiritual disciplines.

  • Service

    Age-appropriate projects are implemented to help your children discover the joy of serving others and to develop a servant's heart.

  • Awards

    Keeping with the Olympic theme, children receive Bronze, Silver, and Gold level awards as they progress in their pursuit of spiritual growth goals.

  • High-Energy Game Time

    Games designed to help children memorize their bible verses and/or expand on the Biblical truths taught throughout the night

  • Quiet Time Daily Devotional

    An age-appropriate daily devotional designed to help children build the habit of listening to God through daily Bible reading, application of Bible truths, and prayer

 

Children are divided according to age and grade level as follows:

 

  • Nursery - childcare available for ages 0-2

  • Gopher Buddies  - Age-appropriate lessons teach foundational truths of Scripture so that children, ages 3-5, can begin to develop a basic understanding of Scripture.

  • Challengers - Kindergarten - 2nd grade

  • Conquerors - 3rd - 4th grade

  • Champions - 5th grade

The Olympians program at Wake Cross Roads meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30pm - 7:50pm as a part of our Wednesday Night Equip. Classes are available for all ages, including nursery for babies and adult classes on a variety of topics.

 

If you're worried about dinner, we've got that covered too! Join us before Olympians for our bi-monthly family meal at 5:30pm. 

 

Join us on Wednesday nights to equip your whole family to live out their faith and make disciples of Jesus.
