Logos is a means of providing in-depth and well-rounded Christian nurture for children. The program is intended to run
parallel to the school year, with weekly meetings beginning in September and ending in April. Breaks are taken when school is not in session, holidays, and the month of December.
The midweek Logos Ministry is made up of four basic segments:
- Bible – grade-level courses, taught by committed, prepared teachers using quality curriculum;
- Worship Skills/Choir
– leadership, participation, preparation, and training for worship, primarily through choir and hand chimes;
- Family Time Dinner – with “family groups” composed of children and “table parents” at each table;
- Play/Activities – athletics, games, hobbies, crafts, and/or recreational activities of all kinds.
The program is not a substitute for, or replacement of, the Sunday Church School and other Christian nurture programs of the
church. It is another unique area of First Christian’s nurture commitment and a strong enhancement of the total ministry of the church.
Logos originators speak of its “non-negotiable bones.” They are the skeletal strength of the program to which First Christian
is also committed:
- Everyone participates in all four parts, every week;
- Everyone in Sunday worship every week;
- Pastoral leadership and participation;
- Parent commitment to annual Parents Meeting and to the weekly program;
- Midweek scheduling of the program;
- Program funded primarily by participating families.
(log’ os) – What does the word LOGOS mean? If it sounds like Greek to you it’s for good reason: it is Greek, and it means’ “The Word.” Not the spoken word, but the word, as stated in John 1: 1-18: “In the beginning was the Word. . . and the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us. . .” Logos is a system of ministry that is designed to nurture all those involved as they mirror the example of Christ. The Logos Ministry is the practice of Christian relationships in a disciplined (midweek) context.
