This summer, we’re going on an epic adventure! We want to help kids understand that each of us are on a journey of faith. When we follow Jesus, He will MOVE us to: DO what Jesus says, BELIEVE who Jesus is, LOVE who Jesus loves, SHARE what Jesus did, GO where Jesus leads. Hebrews 12:2 says, “Let us keep looking to Jesus. He is the one who started this journey of faith. And he is the one who completes the journey of faith.” The Salvation Army Kroc Community Center is committed to building a strong community, and that starts with educating the adults of tomorrow. The Kroc’s youth programs combine developmental learning, mentorship, team building and more in a fun atmosphere where kids will feel comfortable learning, being active and making new friends.
