Something BIG in the Basement is a program for kids in grades 5-8, and it meets just about every Friday night during the school year.

The evening begins with a silly game (like putting pantyhose over your head, and eating a banana through them!).  After that, we have discussion time, covering topics that affect middle schoolers, designed to help them handle difficult situations and issues. We talk about things like:  cyber bullying and how to handle it, teachers that seem to hate you, and parents that “treat you like children.” 🙂  These life lessons are always reinforced with scripture and point to Jesus Christ.  After discussion time, kids are allowed to take part in their choice of the offered activities.  Whether it’s the BIG game upstairs, Playstation, creating in the art studio, playing pool, or just hanging out with friends.

During the evening, kids are able to purchase snacks and refreshments at the snack bar, which offers free popcorn, drinks, some hot foods and prepackaged snack/candy items.

The purpose of Something BIG in the Basement is to offer a group of kids in our community a place to hang out and be themselves with people who truly care about them. We show and teach the unconditional love and forgiveness of Christ.
