A simple party to send off students to stand strong in middle school.
The Strong Send-Off Party: Fun filled end-of-the-year event for every child in the last grade of elementary school and their parents to come eat, socialize and learn how to rely on their faith during their teenage years. Sponsored/planned/financed by a parent committee from each individual school (potentially every student in the district, and their parents, could hear the message of Christ through these parent-planned parties).
- Make good choices: Encouraging a personal relationship with Christ lays a foundation for good and moral decision making
- You are not alone: Helping our soon-to-be middle schoolers know there are others who also want to live a life pleasing to God and that together they can stand strong
- Encouragement for Moms and Dads: Supporting parents purposing to establish homes of faith and uniting together in order to help their students stand strong
- Free S3 gift for every student and an optional day-by-day prayer and memory verse flip calendar for parents
