Born to Be Brave Tour:

(Boys ages 6-12yrs old)
We are excited to have the “Born to Be Brave” tour coming to Lima Community Church on Monday February 11th from 6:30-9:00PM. From the creators of Secret Keeper Girl comes a new connecting event just for guys where solid Biblical content is paired with live worship from Allan Scott Band, 2,000 ping pong balls, and the WHEEL OF DESTRUCTION. We're going to show you some of the coolest things never to try at home, so that you and your son will be closer once you get home. You'll connect with your son in ways that are NOT awkward and discover the simple things you can do to go from being an active father to a strategic father. Because whether you know it or not, you're the man he looks up to, and you were Born to Be Brave. (For fathers and sons ages 6-12 years.)
The online cost is $22/person, however, if you purchase tickets at the church through February 4th, the cost is $15/person. You can purchase them at the church on weekends or in the AXIS office Monday-Friday 9AM-2PM.
The Born to Be Brave Tour: 100% Cool. 0% Awkward.


We use 252 Basics from Orange:

Everything we teach from 252 Basics is based on one of three basic,
but powerful truths from Luke 2:52.


I need to make the wise choice.


I can trust God no matter what.


I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

We teach these core truths by showing kids:

That the Bible is the source of wisdom and truth.
That what they learn applies to their daily lives.
That their relationships with small group leaders and friends matter.

Most kids will form their entire idea of who God is and choose whether or not they will have a relationship with Him before leaving 5th grade. That’s why weekends are so important here at Lima Community Church.

Stuff you need to Know:

In order to provide for the ultimate security of your child while in our care, we follow a strict security policy.

*All of our DOWNTOWN elementary volunteers and staff have been through volunteer training and have been background checked.

*Parents may check their kids into DOWNTOWN Elementary beginning 15 minutes prior to service starting.  They will do this using our “Secure Check-in” computer system.

*When you check your child in, you and your child will be given matching security ID #’s as well as a pager number.  When the service is over, you must present your ID # to receive your child.  Children are not permitted to leave DOWNTOWN Elementary without the proper adult.

*If your child needs you during the service, we will put your pager number on the screen in the main service.

*20 minutes after each service begins, the children’s area is secured and only parents with security tags are allowed to access the area by seeing a safety team member.

*In the unlikely occurrence the building needs evacuated, all parents will be directed to the east driveway parking lot where you may pick up your child with the approval of the leader.

Well Child Policy:

We ask that sick children NOT attend DOWNTOWN Elementary in order to ensure the health of other children and staff.

Discipline Policy:

It is the desire of the volunteers and staff of DOWNTOWN Elementary to create an environment that promotes learning and spiritual growth for our children.  When correction is necessary, children will be treated with gentleness, respect, and understanding.  Should a child conduct him/herself in a manner that is distracting or harmful to another child, he will be asked to change his behavior.  If the behavior continues, the parent will be paged and the child may be removed from DOWNTOWN Elementary for that service.


All children Kindergarten-5th Grade are promoted in the fall at the beginning of the school year.
