Serving People
And Reaching Kids

S.P.A.R.K. is for all 4th & 5th graders (and parent volunteers!)

Join us for fun and faith as we serve our community and world.  We help others and have tons of fun!  Whether we are serving others at the food bank, visiting with older adults, skating, or bowling, we are sure to have a SPARKling time.

Upcoming Events (subject to changes - stay tuned!):

Our kickoff meeting will be Sunday, September 14, and will involve both students AND parents! We will begin about at about 12:15pm (after the 11am service), and lunch will be provided. During this meeting, we'll do some introductions, talk about the goals of SPARK, and go over our schedule for the year. The kids will also tie-dye their very own tshirts to wear to all our events!
