This week, all secondary students will attend the Core Group Kickoff on Thursday, September 13th at Christ Chapel West. The Core Group program at TCA has become a great asset when it comes to welcoming new students and providing all students with a “family within the family.” Students in grades 6-12 will automatically become part of a Core Group. There are separate groups for boys and girls, each made up of students from each grade. Groups are paired with a teacher sponsor and are led by upper classmen who apply for leadership and attend training at the beginning of the year. Core Groups work together to plan mission projects, have Bible studies, plan group parties, and generally have a lot of fun.
On Thursday, at the Core Group Kickoff, our new students will learn which Core Group they will be joining. It’s a great day consisting of praise and worship, a challenge for the school year, and a ton of games and activities. The group in which each student is placed will be their Core Group for the entire time they attend TCA. Seniors graduate and move out and new sixth graders move in, but the “core” of the group will remain the same. Overall, the Core Group Kickoff is a great way to begin the school year. Be on the lookout for specific information and please join us in praying for this very special event.
Core Group Kickoff: Thursday, Sept. 13
Location: Christ Chapel West
Time: 9:00 – 2:00
Drop off and Pick up: At Christ Chapel West (No TCA drop off or pick up for secondary students)
