What are Tru Clubs?
Tru Clubs are a part of ROOTS Children’s Ministry at Monte Vista Chapel. ROOTS is committed to creating environments that nurture each child’s journey in learning about God and following Jesus. We value teaching God’s Word to plainly display God’s grand narrative--with Jesus being the central character--while inviting each of us to participate in the continuation of God’s story today. In addition to reading and learning from the Bible, we also believe that growing relationships with other Christ followers provides us with opportunities to grow closer to God. It is our hope that children who participate in Tru Clubs would walk away knowing that they are known and deeply loved by God.
What Does a Tru Club Night Look Like?
Worship . Scripture . Discipleship . Play
Each club level offers a time of worship, Bible lesson, a time of reflection and guided discussion, plus a game or craft time. There will also be a monthly “Remember Verse” that each club will learn together which encompasses that month’s theme. Themes include: Storytelling, Identity, Faith Community, Serving, stepping outside of your Comfort Zones, Responsibility, Love & Respect for God and Others, Knowing God, Graceful Course Correction, and Modeling Jesus.
Parents will also receive a monthly resource called “Homefront,” which includes a preview of what scriptures your children will be exploring and how you can partner with MVC and prepare your child ahead for what they will be learning in their Tru Club. This is NOT a requirement for your child to participate; it is simply a resource to help you come alongside your child!
$10 for the first child in your family, or $15 for two or more!
Moms Club || Fall 2018

Moms Club is a Christ-centered group for moms of young children. Once a month we offer a morning where we explore topics, speakers or demonstrations that are relevant to us as moms. The other weeks of the month we break up into small groups led by Mentor Moms. We begin with breakfast each week, and we have great conversation and laughter. You are invited to join us!
This fall, our small groups will go through the book 'Uninvited' by Lisa TerKeurst). You can purchase your own copy or download an electronic version before club begins.
