SHINE offers a variety of Family Ministry activities and services throughout the year. Here are some of the groups, activities and events we have available this year:
We hold many SHINE family events each year. In the past they have included our back to school party, fall trip to the Corn maze, year-end family bash, etc. The events offered can vary each year. These events are for SHINE members and are open to the current members in the family. Please see the FAQ's page regarding non-member adult (alumni/graduates included) participation in our group.

SHINE Graduation is held in May of each year for SHINE member seniors. Specific information will be available in August/September. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org Attn: Graduation for more information about this year’s graduation.
Field trips are offered throughout the year. They can be organized by any SHINE parent and are available to all SHINE members (active members are parents/guardians and member children--adult children or other extended family members many not attend the field trips). Guidelines for planning field trips are included in the membership packet. There is a Field Trip Leader Form that can be filled out to request permission to hold a field trip for the group. See the Event Calendar for already scheduled field trip dates and times.
Our school pictures are usually taken twice a year on our Co-op's paperwork day. These pictures are used in our yearbook and are also available for individual ordering. You do not have to participate in Co-op to get your child's picture done. Please see the Event Calendar for specific date and times and plan on coming down for picture day!
SHINE offers a yearbook each year. Photos for the yearbook are taken throughout the school year during different events and classes. Our yearbook team works hard all year to create a wonderful yearbook for our families to enjoy.
Each week we meet at a local park for fun and fellowship. Please see the Event Calendar for specific dates and times.
