The Logos program is one part of First Presbyterian's nurture and educational ministries. It is a mid-week (Wednesday) program for kindergarten through 12th grade. Logos meets from 5-7pm on Wednesday nights during the months of September through May. We have supper together, play and worship, and do Bible Study.
The four parts of the LOGOS weekly ministry model are:
Bible Study – Bible study nurtures youth and children into intelligent, obedient, and Biblically-informed discipleship. In grade level groups, each LOGOS class uses a curriculum that is designed to meet their unique needs and learning capabilities.
Worship Skills – Worship is essential and central to the Christian community. In Worship Skills young people learn about worship and prepare to lead in the Sunday morning service of worship.
Recreation Play – Recreation Play allows LOGOS young people to experience great fun at the expense of no one else. They participate in games and active play, do crafts, or experience the hobby or special interest of a member of the congregation. When we reveal ourselves in play, we strengthen friendships, and when conflicts occur, we practice our Child of God theology.
Family Time – Family Time provides a joyous, inter-generational celebration of person hood over a shared meal as LOGOS young people experience being part of the family of God. Young people are assigned to tables along with one or two adults who act as “table parents.” The group around the table becomes a family as they share meals together throughout the year. Food is served family style. Conversation is purposeful. Life is celebrated!
