The summer is almost over, below is a recap of what we’ve done in KIDZ Rock/J12 and what is coming up!

Nebraska Youth Ministries The Crossing at Lexington

Our camp fundraiser this year allowed 18 Rock Church NexGen Students a scholarship to help them get to camp. KIDZ Rock/J12 had 3 first time salvations and 3 rededications.  God did amazing things in the kids’ lives. We all had a blast, learned a lot about each other and experienced God’s presence through some wonderful teachings!

J12 Wednesday’s 6:30pm – 8:00pm 1st-5th Graders

We just finished up our Camp Wannastay series. We learned all about being a good leader; how to be a leader, how to include others, how to serves, how to show respect, how to go first, and how to celebrate others. There were fun games and great Biblical tie-ins to each of these topics.

Our memory verse for this series was 1 Timothy 4:12a

“Don’t let anyone make fun of you, just because you are young. Set an example for other followers by what  you say and do.”

This week we’re starting our new series; The Armor of God. I’m so excited to walk through Ephesians 6:10-17 with our J12 students. Victory comes when; I speak the Truth and do what’s right, walk in peace, live by faith, think like Christ, read God’s word!

This year we will be doing two separate groups for J12; 1st-2ndand 3rd-5thgrade students. This will allow all students to have an age appropriate environment to learn and grow in God’s truth. Each night we will discover God’s truth in fun and exciting ways through object lesson and games.

Family Faith Day August 19th, 10am @ Riverside Discovery Center

This is going to be an amazing time for the whole family! We’ll start off with worship and entertaining message from CiCoff (, then we’ll all enjoy some food and fellowship together, explore the zoo, and learn more about God’s creation through education stations. Invite your friends and be prepared for a great encounter with God.
