Agape Trail 2017/2018 ~ Registration
August 5th - October 30th, 2017
THIS PROGRAM IS FOR RISING 5TH GRADERS ONLY
AGAPE TRAIL EMPHASIS: The Agape Trail Mission is to bring 5th grade students into a greater understanding of WHO they are in Christ in order to instill a correct sense of significance. In addition to the great love of Christ, they are reminded of the love of their parents, their peers and their church. Our hope and our prayer is that the student's self-esteem and self-confidence will be increased to a point that they are steadfast in their faith in order to withstand the upcoming social pressures of middle school.
SPIRITUAL MILESTONE (#4): PREPARING FOR ADOLESCENCE
THE RETREAT: The Agape Trail Retreat is a 2-day process completed in the spring as our culminating event; each component is designed to bring the students to a point where they are fully able to receive the love of Christ and the love of their family. The team building efforts over the course of the weekend are designed to integrate each student and unify the class as a whole. Our attempt is to bring the 5th graders closer together so that they know they have the love and support of their peers at church - no matter what is happening with peers at school or in their neighborhood.
Our theme verse for Agape Trail is Matthew 22:37-38, The Greatest Commandment.... "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind!" This is the first and greatest commandment, and the second is like it: Love your neighbor as your self."
Our hope and prayer is that this program becomes a spiritual milestone in the lives of our 5th graders, which in turn will bless their families, the Agape Trail Team and positively affect Sandhills Community Church.
