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).”
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 Worship Art involvement 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): snack organizer, recreation leader, bible study leader, supportive adult, etc.
What are the 4 parts?
Bible Study - A time for each grade, or a combination of grades, to study the Bible as the model for Christ-centered living.
Worship Arts - Recognizing that not all families will be comfortable being at in person worship and that we can't sing for a while, we'll use other creative ways to be engaged with corporate worship.
Recreation - Games, crafts, and more will fill this time with joy and relationships being built.
Family Time - The shared meal is a time to gather. Usually we'd be together with “table families” of various ages who eat together each week for the entire program year. This year we'll be "back to basics" with those who live in the same household sharing a meal.
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."
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 a pastor.
2021-2022 - $20 per child for fall/youth (family maximum: $50). There may be additional fee for the spring if we return to meals.
