Home YES!



The mission of the YES! Program at the North River Church of Christ is be an outpouring of the love and grace of Christ by serving our immediate neighborhood through a free Saturday enrichment program offered seasonally to K-5 children as well as gifting them with school supplies each July. The Saturday program exists to foster academic excellence, self esteem and teamwork; our curriculum is designed and executed accordingly. We also partner with the Marietta City Schools social workers to provide community families with food and clothing from various drives throughout the calendar year.

YES! Spring Kickoff

April 8, 2017

We had a tremendous start to our YES! Spring session. Friends, new and old, gathered at the FLC for our afternoon focused on our word of the day- trustworthy. In Art!, we made our very own flip books followed by a water balloon toss during Sports! Ms. Katey taught us how to be entomologists, people who study bugs, during Mission Impossible! and we even held a few of the bugs we studied (except the tarantula and scorpion, of course). We learned that bugs truly help our daily life. Mr. Hamilton helped us talk about what it means to be trustworthy as we did some blind-folded trust exercises. As always, we sang silly songs and really enjoyed each other. We’re looking forward to another action- packed afternoon this coming Saturday when we have a field day planned with the Ottenweller family group!
