Our goal is for students to be:

     1. Aware of their identity as a redeemed Child of God;
     2. Equipped to fully participate in the life of the community of faith.
 
Through the J.A.M. program, students will…
  • Build upon the goals of LOL ROCK (Ministry for students in 5th and 6th grades);
  • Learn to dialogue with each other and adult mentors about faith issues and topics;
  • Develop a positive self-image as creations of God;
  • Establish a firm foundation in Christian basics;
  • Expand ownership of their faith.
Parents of students in the J.A.M. program will become...
  • Partners in ministry. We believe that parents (not the church) will always be the biggest influence on their children's lives in every way--including spiritually. We want to work with you, the most powerful, influential people to help our students grow in their relationship with Jesus. 
  • Eager to be actively engaged in their kids' spiritual growth as well as their own.
  • Confident in their ability to engage their child in faith conversations.
Parent Volunteers in the J.A.M. program will…
  • Discover opportunities to deepen their faith;
  • See the world through the eyes of their children;
  • Appreciate the social interaction of their children and peers.
