Each June, we love to celebrate the milestones students and parents reach! But we also recognize we need to do more than celebrate. At Wincog, we want to be the best partner you have when it comes to parenting your child.
Step up into Middle School
So you’re the proud parent of a soon-to-be 5th grade graduate! It’s such a big deal, to see your child getting ready to move on to Middle School. Get ready, because sixth grade is the phase when there’s never enough groceries, too many hormones, and a dramatic kid that needs someone to prove, “who cares.”
We recognize that while this is a huge transition for your current 5th grader, it’s also a major transition for parents! And we want to help.
PREVIEW DAY. We’re hosting a Preview Day Sunday, June 2 at 1:00pm in the Family Life Center. We’ll have lunch, and you’ll meet our sixth grade small group leaders for the summer and the full 2019-20 school year. They have big plans and a huge heart for your child’s age group, so please register, so we know you’ll be coming. We’ll also give you a tour of the building so that when your child “steps up” into the student ministry the following Wednesday, they won’t be so overwhelmed.
STEP-UP WEDNESDAY. Your child will officially “step up” to the student ministry Wednesday, June 5. The worship experience begins at 7:00pm, but please bring your child about an hour early so they can hangout with friends, make new friends, and get a snack from the Reach Café. We’ll recognize your child, and the 40 other 5th grade graduates, welcoming them into the student ministry in a big way!
MENTORS. In addition to your child’s small group leaders being focused exclusively on your child and the other sixth graders, we’ll introduce your child to a mature student that’s eager to help your child make great choices as they enter Middle School.
If you have any questions, please call Pastor Chris in the church office at (540) 667-8017, or you can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also want to recognize students stepping up into High School, and those who are either graduating High School, or entering their final year. We have lots of resources to help with these major transitions as well as others, just let us know how we can help you!
