Food Cost (price reduction):

Honor Code Commitment:

  • As an extension of The Family Church Impact Wednesdays Program, all Impact students have a responsibility to keep Christ central in their life. He should remain the ultimate basis of why you want to participate in the program. A Christ-centered life entails the responsibility to grow towards, and ultimately be an example of, mature Christian behavior, and to help others do the same to some capacity.

  • While serving in Impact, students are agreeing to present a good attitude and behavior, doing their best to demonstrate Biblical standards in all situations. Our conduct should never be an embarrassment to Christ or the Impact Program.

  • Exemplifying high moral commitment, Impact members are to maintain a godly life-style according to the Bible. Impact students must also refrain from:

    • Profanity

    • Homosexuality

    • Smoking or chewing tobacco

    • Drinking alcohol

    • Illegal drugs

    • Pornography

    • Sexual immorality

    • Bullying and/or cruelty toward others

We view growing and becoming more like Jesus as part of our spiritual development, not as an imposition or a restriction.

Behavioral Policy:

Parents must agree to these terms for their student to attend Impact Wednesdays, including our behavioral policy. 

The Impact program is designed to:

  • Spiritually disciple and grow students

  • Help cultivate gifts within the students

  • Identify and develop leaders

  • Provide a safe, positive, Godly place for Jr. High students to have fun

With these goals in mind, it is a privilege to be a part of the Impact program. Any student behaving in a way that is directly opposing its purpose will be addressed promptly.

If a student is being disruptive to this process, the behavior will be handled as follows:

General Behavior

  • The student will be removed from their group/activity

  • A staff member will have a discussion with the student concerning the behavior

  • A warning will be given; the next time they need to be removed from their group/activity, a parent will be called to come pick them up immediately

  • An incident report will be filled out detailing the situation and kept in Impact records

Serious Behavior 

  • The student will be required to call their parent in the presence of a staff member and tell their parent why they need to be picked up

  • Due to all staff needing to continuing responsibilities throughout the afternoon/evening, trying to have a conversation when picking up a student after being called is difficult. Any parent wanting to discuss anything further with a staff member can call after Impact or the next day, or they can communicate through email as well.

Withdrawal From Program Due to Behavior

  • If a parent is called to come pick up their student 3 times in a semester due to behavior, the student and parent will need to schedule a meeting with Pastors Hayden & Katie

  • In that meeting, they will decide whether returning to Impact is in the best interests of everyone involved

Serious behaviors that will warrant a parent pickup immediately:

  • Being consistently disruptive to the activity of the group (examples: Small Group discussions, Stream time tasks)

  • Bullying in any form; this includes making fun of students on social media

  • Physical altercations of any kind

We love and believe in Jr. High students! With that being said, our staff is always gracious with students behavior. We know they are generally loud, hyper, and are growing in self-discipline. If a parent is called, it is because the behavior has come to a point where it needs the firmness and loving kindness of a parent. Together, we can help students navigate this season in their lives.
