What is the NG Academy?
It is a fun way to be intentional about learning. From April 1 to October 31, we will have the opportunity to participate in activities and studies that will challenge us to grow in four areas: 1-Bible Knowledge; 2-Experiencing Christ; 3-Connecting with Others; 4-Healthy Living
There will be 6 to 8 options available in each area. Credit will be received for each activity you complete. On November 6 we will have a special service to celebrate our accomplishments.
Why are we doing this?
God wants us to grow and learning is essential to growth. It is also important to remember that growth does not really take place if we don’t apply what we learn. I would not be surprised that we discover we already know most of this as we participate in these activities. The real challenge comes when applying it, not just for six months, but the rest of our lives.
