Harvest Kids’ Midweek Ministry at the Aurora Campus
Midweek Mania is Aurora’s Harvest Kids’ midweek discipleship opportunity committed to partnering with parents to disciple children.
Children participate in theme nights, games, worship, and small groups to grow in community with one another while growing in spiritual disciplines. Throughout the year they work through materials to memorize God’s Word, explore the Bible, and complete memorable activities. Incremental awards encourage participation with the goal of growing closer to Christ and HarvestKids friends throughout the year.
Who is Midweek Mania For?
Each group is tailored for that specific age using best practices in learning styles, attention spans, and age-appropriate development.
Preschool: Cubbies (3 years—PreK)
Preschoolers will use the Awana Cubbies curriculum, which is designed to help them develop respect for God, His Son and His Word. Children learn basic truths about God, Jesus and salvation through fun, story-based handbooks, picture teaching cards and more. Puppets, songs, lessons, awards, games and crafts, help kids learn and grow in their understanding of Christ’s love for them.
Grade School: Go Deeper (Kindergarten—Fifth Grade)
Extending the lesson from our Sunday morning Go Curriculum, we will dive deeper into our chronological journey through the entire Bible. Kids will see and experience both God’s people and promises through the Big Bible Story, but there will be a special emphasis on God’s power. From the first days of creation to the resurrection of Jesus and beyond, God has exhibited His omnipotence in the protection, provision, and pursuit of His people. Kids will discover that God still exhibits his power through the Holy Spirit by drawing us into a saving relationship with Him.
When is Midweek Mania?
Our calendar will follow the Adult Ministry Bible Study Schedule. Our first session will begin Wednesday, September 20, and finish on November 15. Dates for Session 2 are TBD. Each Wednesday meeting will run from 6:30-8:00 PM.
Do you need volunteers?
Yes, we do! Midweek ministry can be offered only when adults are faithful volunteers giving 2-3 hours a week during the nine-week session to benefit the spiritual growth of children. This will be the most rewarding couple of hours that you spend each week. You will grow in your own spiritual walk as you witness firsthand the spiritual growth of the children in our care. No prior experience is necessary and you will be equipped for your role.
Volunteer Opportunities include:
- Small Group Leader
- Game Leader
- Setup/Prep Work
Our volunteer positions require a commitment to serve every week in the session. In appreciation for your service, you will receive a $5 discount for each child that you register within your household.
What Does Midweek Cost?
Preschool: Cubbies costs $55 for the entire year and includes one handbook, all awards, as well as snacks and materials for crafts and games. Cubbies’ uniform vests are purchased separately along with optional tote bags ($20+).
Grade School costs $30 for each ten-week session (registration is only open for the fall session, September—November, at this time)
