WHAT IS SUPERSTART
SuperStart! is a high- energy weekend event in which preteens can learn and grow in their relationships with friends, leaders and most importantly, God.
WHY SEND MY STUDENT TO SUPERSTART!?
Preteens are at an age where they're starting to take hold of core ideas for the first times in their lives - they're owning their own beliefs. They're moving away from the blanket acceptance of adult moral judgment to the development of their
own personal values.
The demand for preteen specific ministry has continued to increase within America's churches over the past decade. These preteens need more time, space and resources. They need teach-ing that is specific to their age group - not too young (or "boring," as they would say it) and not too old.
Christ in Youth's SuperStart! exists to help fill the void for this age group, and to come alongside the church in a fun, inventive way to reach students that are often overlooked.
2015 THEME: SuperStart and the Mysterious Truth
John 8:31-32 - If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
Preteens are part of a generation where information is more readily available than any other generation before them. They spend their days in classrooms listening to teachers and peers. They spend their afternoons practicing skills through sports and academic clubs. They spend their evenings with their families around meals and television sets. And interwoven through all of this is a constant connection to the Internet and social media. The only time preteens aren't downloading information is the few short hours when they’re asleep. They’re essentially bombarded with data, facts, opinions and all other types of knowledge. As a result, they find themselves in the never-ending process of sorting through what they believe to be right or wrong, real or unreal, true or false. As Christian leaders of this age group we know how important it is that they hear God’s truth. He has created an amazing life for them in Him, and understanding His truths helps keep us all involved in that amazing life. Finding and owning God’s truths in the midst of the world’s false teaching can be a lot like solving a mystery. This year at SuperStart! our goal is to help your students understand that all truth can be found in Christ. By looking at John 8:31-32, we’ll give them the tools they need to find truth in Him and challenge them to share truth with the world around them.
