What is it?
'Glow' is a special, one-day event for Middle Grade students (8 to 13-year olds) and their parents. It will include hands-on workshops where kids can pursue a wide range of interests from art to dance, athletics, fishing, music, and more. As students begin to discover who they are and where they excel, we want to show them what their gifts, passions, and abilities might look like submitted to Christ.
Why Middle Grade students?
8 to 13-year olds begin to wrestle with questions of identity, purpose, and place. They wonder, "Who am I?" "Why am I here?" "Where do I belong?" At Glow, we want to come alongside them, to embody the answer to these questions, speaking and acting in such a way that kids know they are loved and valued, the work of their hands has significance, and they are not alone.
Will there be any special guests?
Yes! Glow workshops will be led by gifted and experienced artisans, some locally-centered, some nationally-known. Included among these are singer-songwriter Randall Goodgame, musician/recording artist Jason Gray, author and singer-songwriter Andrew Peterson, and author S.D. Smith.
