Check-In @ Connect | Teens
We want everyone to feel welcome and safe at Connect | Teens, which is part of the reason we use a check-in tablet system. When students arrive, they'll need to check-in and get a neaetag. If it's your first time, don't worry, we have helpers ready to get you started!
All the students at Connect | Teens wear nametags so nobody feels left out and everyone can learn everyone else's name, too!
Connect | Teens meets each week during the school year. Should there be weather inclement enough that Davenport Schools cancel or dismiss early, there will be no church events that night.
During the summer we like to turn up the fun a bit more!
Connect | Teens works hard to find fun ways to gather together at the church and in the community. A calendar will be published in May summarizing the great summer events ('smores night is one of our favorites!!!!).
Special Events @ Connect | Teens
Each year, there are many special opportunities for students to participate in different experiences, retreats, missions and camps.
Here are two of our biggest opportunities:
Each year in the fall, students have the opportunity to sign-up fo r asummer mission trip. It's a great way to revive the world through service. We've been to Milwaukee, Lorain county (Ohio), and Pine Ridge Indian Reservation (South Dakota)in the past few years. Students have opportunities to fundraise throughout the year.
Summer Games Univeristy or SGU Camp is an amazing week of worship, Bible study, and tons of fun with more than 400 other teens from across Iowa. This camp meets in July each year with registration opening in early January. For more information, please visit www.sgu.camp. Most of our students and leaders make it to SGU Camp each year.
