What is Main Event?
Main Event is the best week of the summer! In this Kindergarten through 5th-grade experience, kids are drawn into Bible teaching through exciting dramas as well as hands-on activities. Each night launches with an opening session that introduces kids to a Biblical truth that helps them understand who God says they are. Large group worship and teaching gives kids a concept that will be reinforced throughout the evening. At the end of the night, parents can join kids for the closing session with a drama production that drives the Big Idea home in a tangible way.
This year, our drama experience joins Lucy as she travels to Narnia. Lucy is on a quest to understand who she is designed to be. God’s plan for Lucy and her siblings will help kids understand that they were made to be people full of purpose and promise.
When and where is Main Event?

How does Main Event work?
Main Event starts July 15 at 6 p.m. The doors will open at 5 p.m. If you have not registered your child in advance, we recommend arriving right when doors open. When you register your child, they are assigned to an age-specific group. Inside their grade group, they are placed into a smaller group of 10 kids with 2 counselors.
During the opening session, kids will be presented with a Big Idea for the day. This Big Idea is repeated throughout their Main Event experience no matter what rotation they are in. From the opening session, the Big Idea will come to life for the kids as they rotate through three different activities. Each of the three rotations is designed to help kids connect the Big Idea with their daily life as they experience a dramatic Bible teaching, hands-on activity and interactive illustrations.
At the end of the evening, kids join back together in the sanctuary to experience the closing session. Here, they see a professionally-styled drama that helps tie the Big Idea into their daily life. Parents are encouraged to join us for this closing session.
