The philosophy behind Club 45
Club 45 was created because we believe pre-teens are walking in-between childhood and adolescence. It’s a time that needs to be honored, respected and nurtured.
Kids in this stage need a safe place to be goofy and ask tough questions; a place to play and pray; and a place to see examples of older youth and caring adults who are living out their faith and having fun.
Club 45 was created as a way of helping kids who are going through this transitional time in their lives to understand: “You belong here.”
How the program works
Club 45 does not use a set curriculum. Instead, the program combines activities, games, discussions and events, so kids can discover who they are, what they think, how to be a better friend, and how to accept others and themselves.
Club 45 helps kids:
- Genuinely be who they are: children becoming adolescents!
- Develop leadership skills and self-confidence.
- Participate in a special youth group experience that helps prepare them to participate in our middle school youth group.
- Find a place to belong that is accepting, caring and fun.
How to participate in Club 45
Generally, Club 45 meets once a month on Sunday evenings, and there is no sign-up required to participate. Special activities may take place at other times, and in these instances, registration may be required.
