CIY - Superstart

March 2nd - March 3rd, 2018



Ben Davis Christian Church preteens will travel to Traders Point Christian Church in Whitestown, Indiana to participate in SuperStart! – a weekend-long, worship event geared for pre-teens in motion. At SuperStart! pre-teens learn and grow as they build relationships with friends, kids ministry leaders and – most importantly – Jesus. The 2018 theme for SuperStart! is Power UP.

The $80 cost is all-inclusive, including: dinner Friday, breakfast and lunch on Saturday, two snacks, transportation, event t-shirt and accommodations. A $25 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit is due at registration.


Luke 11:28 “But (Jesus) said, ‘Blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!’”

Imagine your favorite video game. You’re at the moment where everything hangs in the balance. One wrong move and your player could die, but if you play the game just right you’ll make it to the next level and eventually win the game. It’s the perfect time for a “Power Up” – that critical gift or ability that you didn’t have before, but it helped you advance and win.

Young Disciples - Children's Baptism Class

March 4th - March 11th, 2018

This class is for any child that is questioning baptism and how to start their faith journey. As always, we want to partner with parents in their child’s growth, so we ask that an adult attend the class with their child. This class discusses, Who God Is, Who Jesus Is, What Jesus did for us, communion, baptism and discipleship.

When registering, you will need to register each child and adult.

Elevate 912 Spring Retreat

April 6th - April 8th, 2018


This Spring Retreat at Johnson University provides a weekend of compelling messages, high energy worship, and great fellowship. This event offers high school youth an opportunity to grow their relationship with God on a beautiful college campus surrounded by other young people who share their passion for Christ. This year promises to be a thought-provoking one for students, as our Spring Retreat theme is “Enough” based on the life of David. We will explore David’s life and see that no matter our upbringing, status, or others’ opinions of us...we are ENOUGH to be used by God.

Please register no later than March 11. The $80 registration includes the retreat, meals, lodging and transportation.

We will be leaving at 12:30 Friday, April 6. This retreat will count as a college visit. Letters will be provided by the college to excuse the absence on Friday.

Through our strategic partnerships, Ben Davis Christian Church hosts short-term mission trips and service projects for individuals, families and Missional Communities. While we believe the mission field is all around us, short-term mission trips and service projects challenge us to live on mission abroad and in our own backyards. Join us in 2018 as we parter with Christianville Foundation in Gressier, Haiti to serve an orphanage and dedicate a school in TiBoucan.

The cost of the trip is $1,250.00. The cost is all-inclusive, and includes: airfare, travel expenses while in Haiti, lodging at the Christianville guesthouse, travel insurance, food (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), translators, project supplies, and a t-shirt. Final payments are due by team members in May.

There will be multiple opportunities to learn more about the trip before the sign-up deadline, including information meetings after the 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. services on December 10 and 17 and January 14 and 21.

2018 Theme - CONTRAST

Kingdom workers are called to stand out; to be different and make a difference. There is a stark contrast between a life lived for the King and one lived for anyone or anything else. What are those differences? How should our lives be distinct? Join us summer of 2018 as we look at John's first letter.
