SURGEThe 4th-6th Grade Ministry
SurgeThe 4th-6th Grade Ministry
SurgeSUNDAYS | 8:45 AM | 10:45 AM
Surge combines fun, high energy, and playfulness with a teaching & learning approach that takes preteens and their faith seriously. We aim to create environments where 4th, 5th, and 6th graders can be themselves…so that we can take them beyond themselves. Surge is not quite children’s ministry; but not quite youth ministry. It meets a need for Christian nurture and teaching aimed squarely at kids 9-12 years old.
Have your kid join us at 8:45 AM or 10:45 AM Sunday mornings. Every week. On time. With a Bible.

"WHAT'S THE STORY?" CLASS
Using the resources The Story and The Story for Kids, published by Zondervan, we provide a broad overview of God’s interaction with humans. Each week’s class is filled with review activities like timelines, table discussions, videos, and our giant map.
As we say, “Understanding the Bible’s Big Story is the first step to understanding its individual parts!”
For kids who are at least in 4th grade. Younger kids should wait for a future class offering. Kids must attend with an adult – parent, grandparent, friend’s parent, etc.
Meets Monday nights, 6:30-7:30 pm, February 28-April 11 (No class on Monday, March 28). Questions? E-mail Mark Friestad.
Are you interested in getting baptized? We are hosting a Baptism on Easter Sunday, April 17th, at the Sunrise Service. Email us if you are interested in signing up for this baptism! We would also encourage you to attend a Baptism Class being held on April 10th right after second service in B201. This class is for kids in 2nd-6th grade, and will help answer questions about what baptism means, and why we do it. Parents are welcome to attend with their kids. No registration is required for this event!
On the afternoon of April 15th North Coast Calvary is hosting a Good Friday experience where you will be able to walk through rooms that highlight the events leading up to the last week of the life of Jesus ending with the Cross. After the walk through experience, there will be a Good Friday church service.
