FINAL DAYS TO REGISTER EITHER AS AN ADULT MENTOR OR TO REGISTER A TWEEN (4TH, 5TH OR 6TH GRADER)! DON’T MISS OUT!
Heroes Encouraging And Reaching Tweens or H.E.A.R.T. is a new program that we are starting at St. John’s. This group will be a wonderful way to encourage multi-generational relationships to form and grow within our church family. If you are not familiar with the term Tween, at St. John’s it is our 4th, 5th and 6th grade members. This group are too old to be “kids” but not quite “teens”, they are in be”tween” and they are fabulous! They are fun, opinionated, quirky, shy, loud, smart, athletic, tech-savvy, kind and so much more! They are a special group and we are excited to introduce a way for our adult members to get to know them, encourage them, cheer them on and be another member of their team.
What does being a Hero look like? Every hero looks different – just like in the movies where every hero has a different superpower. God gave each of us gifts to share – the gift of encouragement, humor, being a prayer partner, being a good listener, being an amazing friend, and so much more. Remember back to when you were that age. What would it have meant to have someone remember your birthday, congratulate you on an amazing test score, maybe even come to one of your sporting events? We will have some guidelines and suggestions for you but our hope is for our heroes and their Tweens to enjoy a mutually beneficial friendship that will fit your personalities. We do ask our Heroes to be at least 21 years of age and in keeping with our Safe Sanctuary policies, we will require a background check.
Have a 4th, 5th or 6th grader who would be interested in being a part of H.E.A.R.T. and having a Hero? We do ask that a parent or guardian sign up their Tween.
