Kids Blast Classes - Discovery your ultimate purpose

Connecting with God

It is amazing to have a relationship with God.  Kids learn not only about God, but how to have a meaningful relationship with God.  It is an amazing conference for boys and girls.


Connecting with Friends

Boys and girls from throughout Wisconsin and Northern Michigan come together and make life-long friendships.  Kids come back each year to connect with their friends.  Kids Blast is also a great place to bring friends from your community.


Discovering Your Gifts

Boys and girls discover their ultimate purpose in life.  Through this discovery process each of the boys and girls discover unique gifts and talents God has given them.  Kids Blast allows boys and girls to explore some new talents.
