In addition to the time at the Capitol, TeenPact offers Evening Sessions that give students the opportunity to relax and fellowship with like-minded peers in a more casual environment. Students enjoy a time of worship, are challenged by a message from the Class Director, play games, participate in small groups, and pray together. Evening sessions are an integral part of the TeenPact experience, allowing students to combine the academic emphasis at the Capitol with a spiritual focus on students’ relationships with God and one another.
Evening sessions are offered at no additional cost. Please consider making plans to join us all week –your families are ALL welcome to join us!
We will meet on Monday at 5:30–7:30 pm and Tuesday at 3:30-6:30pm following class dismissal at Bethany Bible Church, 6060 N 7th Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85013 in the “Activity Center”. The church phone is (602)246-9788.
Students are permitted to change into TeenPact appropriate, casual clothes, after class. Join us at church for a potluck on Monday and Tuesday (parents please bring a main dish to feed 10), fellowship, worship and a message from our Class Director, Mr. Aaron Watson, TeenPact Vice President of
Operations and Director of Staff .
After class on Wednesday, plan to join us for our annual pizza party and Ultimate Frisbee! The evening will also include worship and a mini-session in the Ampitheater, from 3:30-6:00. Please plan to pick–up your students at 6 pm.
