This March, we are taking our 4th and 5th grade students to the Superstart conference, and your child is invited! Superstart! Is a high-energy weekend event in which preteens can learn and grow in their relationships with friends, leaders and most importantly God.
This year’s theme is “Unscripted”. Students will be hearing 3 main messages looking at the life of Jesus AND the experiences of King David (as shown in the Psalms) to discuss the following ideas:
Jesus felt it too – Does God really understand everything I feel? Yes, Jesus has felt every feeling we have and understands our emotions
Tell Him what you’re going through – God wants us to come to Him with everything no matter what situation you find yourself in
Trust Him to Guide you – Don’t rely on yourself in those Unscripted moments, trust God who knows everything and will guide you.
How do I register my child?
You can register and pay online at www.Marlborochristian.com under the events tab beginning on January 31, 2023. When you have registered and paid, you will be sent links to fill out the appropriate waiver forms for both CIY and for Defy Gravity Trampoline park. ALL FORMS MUST BE COMPLETED FOR YOUR CHILD TO ATTEND. The Registration Deadline is February 26, 2023.
How much does it cost?
The cost of the trip is $85 which covers transportation, the conference, lodging, and a trip to a trampoline park on Saturday. This trip actually costs close to $120/student, but we are pleased to be able to subsidize a portion of the cost thanks to the generosity of our congregation.
Who will be supervising my child?
Our students will be supervised throughout the event by several of our children’s ministry leaders. These leaders are fully background checked and will do a great job helping us keep your child safe throughout the weekend, while also facilitating small group times.
Where is the conference held?
Superstart! will be held at Lakeside Christian Church in Lakeside Park, KY (Just south of Cincinnati)
We will be staying at the
Comfort Inn and Suites Northern Kentucky 10 Country Drive
