Acts 2:42 “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching (Bible Study) and fellowship (Recreation), to the breaking of bread (Family Time) and prayers (Worship Arts).”
What is LOGOS?
What are the 4 parts?
A weekly intergenerational experience for young people that creates an arena where all ages, together, can learn about, experience, and practice the art of Christian relationships, critical for developing life-long disciples.
Everyone commits to all four parts of LOGOS every week! We practice Worship Arts on Wednesdays so we can help lead worship on Sundays. Kids are involved and learn the importance of being part of worship. Even if you are not a member of Elim, we ask that your child be present on the Sunday that their choir or other Worship Arts group is scheduled.
Who is a part of LOGOS?
We partner home and congregation to nurture our children and youth on their faith journey. Parents, pastors, and staff are actively involved in LOGOS. Parents support LOGOS both through participation and fees that defray the cost of meals, materials, and as a commitment to the LOGOS Ministry.
How can I help?
There are a variety of opportunities available for every parent’s schedule and interest (and other congregation members too); kitchen help and clean up, dining room set up, dessert provider, Recreation leader, choir parent, etc. Sign up is located on the kiosk by the Fellowship Hall or at www.signupgenius.com
What is the fee?
All children and youth who want to participate in LOGOS are welcome. You do not need to be a member of Elim to join LOGOS and scholarships are available. Please speak to Debbie, Lisa or one of the pastors to apply for one.
2017-2018 - $100 per child/youth (family maximum: $250)
(Confirmation/HS - $50 per youth if not beginning with the Family Time meal.)
Bible Study - A time for each grade, or a combination of grades, to study the Bible as the model for Christ-centered living. K-6th Grade will begin in the chapel with Pr. Meredith then go to small group bible study. 7th and 8th Grade Confirmation students will meet with Pr. Scott then break into their small groups. 9th Grade Confirmands and High Schoolers will meet in the Youth Room with Lisa and Pr. Meredith.
Worship Arts - Choir, drama, bells or other arts are rehearsed at LOGOS then presented regularly in corporate worship. At Elim, K-6th grade are in the Joyful Noise choir with Alysha Jordahl. MS/HS will be integrated into several different parts of our Sunday morning worship by reading the week’s lesson, designing bulletin cover art, writing prayers, helping with the Children’s Message and more.
Recreation - All have great fun in a cooperative atmosphere, often drawing on the hobbies and interests of adults in the congregation willing to share their passions on a one-time basis or longer. Games, crafts, service projects and more will fill this time with joy and relationships being built.
Family Time - The shared meal is a time to gather regular “table families” of various ages who eat together each week for the entire program year. Kitchen teams prepare dinners that are served family style - with table settings and serving dishes - practicing the art of serving one another. Elim’s dining room will be a celebration with weekly themes, delicious food and lots of fun. (Dinner is still available for others not in LOGOS, as always!)
Where does the word LOGOS come from?
It means "word" in Greek. So imagine the beginning of the Gospel of John: "In the beginning was the Word (Logos) and the Word (Logos) was with God and the Word (Logos) was God."
