What is Catalyst?
This summer we’re beta-testing a new learning environment for kids around 3rd-6th grades. What is Catalyst? A 4-night group for kids who are at a milestone, those ready to think about what being part of the church means for them.

We want to explain what we do together as a church – Why are these things meaningful to Christians? – and invite them to share in these habits as well.

And best of all, this will be a shared experience itself. A parent/guardian will be part of the group with each child, and you will have a chance to talk 1 on 1 about each of the topics.

What will we discuss?
Baptism. The Bible. Communion. Prayer.

We want to explain the roots of these practices and why – of all things – these are the ones we spend time doing each Sunday. All four connect us to Jesus in a real way, and we want to explicitly invite the next generation to understand and meaningfully participate in them with us.

Is my child ready for Catalyst?
With this small group, intensive format, we’re excited to go into more depth than is possible on any given Sunday in KidsView. Kids we hope to see at Catalyst include those who are asking thoughtful questions about the Bible, church and faith, those considering baptism, those ready to transition from KidsView to “big church” on Sundays, and older kids who maybe need to fill in a few gaps to better appreciate worship.

We’re calling it Catalyst because a catalyst causes a reaction. It’s the thing that happens right before THE thing happens. We believe this small group will be the start of something big – the start of a great personal faith and a great love of the church for everyone who participates.
