The vision for our group is for Christian parents and their kids at Castillero Middle School to build friendship and support for each other as part of the CMS experience - so that our kids can see what Christian community looks like in their school and where together we can be God's Church to the unchurched in a public school setting. Together, we want our families to be healthy, integrated and living out their faith 24x7 while also reaching out to other families with kids at CMS with the love of Jesus Christ. Our vision is that one day communities of faith would be strong and healthy throughout all the public schools in Almaden.
Our thoughts at this time are to make our group a relational group where we meet for bimonthly potluck so as to build relationships, encourage one another, support one another and pray for each other and the people that God brings into our lives as part of these middle school years. Our goal is to be healthy in our faith and have a positive influence in whatever school focused activities we and our kids are a part of at the school. Christian Club, WyldLife, Kids Club, Young Life, Moms in Touch, etc. - all these are formal expressions of God's Church having a visible presence as part of the CMS community. That said; there are also informal expressions of faith that can be encouraged in school-wide programs ranging from academics to sports, music, drama, etc. and can be even more important as we learn to love on each other and others in tangible ways.
Even though we are Venture Church sponsored, and we welcome Venture’s support and oversight, as a greater community of faith focused on advancing God’s whole Kingdom, we don't plan to go through any church specific curriculum. We are purposely wanting to grow friendships among all followers of Jesus at the school and build up all families of faith where together we’re able to have more collective influence. We want our good deeds, acts of service and love for each other and others shine as bright as possible to bring God the greatest glory.
