No one can make anything grow. Farmers don’t make corn grow. All they do is cultivate the soil and create the most ideal space in which the miracle of growth can happen.
That’s what the Community Quest is all about. The four types of Community Badges are designed to be spaces in which you can make friends and feel connected. They aren’t a guarantee. But, if you don’t give them a try, you are guaranteed to not feel connected to your faith community.
We want you to feel connected to God, to your faith community, to the environment, and to yourself. The bottom line: We want you to feel that you are loved and accepted and that it matters that you are here.
The Small Group: Your band of Questers
Each time your small group meets, outside of organized teaching times at church, you will get one small group attendance credit. Attendance is recorded by staff at organized teaching meetings. When you meet 12 times you will receive the Bronze Badge. 24 Times, Silver Badge. 36 times Gold. Earn the Gold to meet the requirements. Your group can go above and beyond and try for the Platinum and Diamond…if you dare!
Sermon Notes: Being part of a Worshipping Community
The minimum requirement to earn this badge is to attend a worship service at Easter Lutheran Church at least 15 times. 5 = Bronze, 10 = Silver, 15 = Gold. Earn the Gold to complete this part of the Quest. However, you can go beyond and reach platinum and diamond, and try to rock the leader board.

Wapo: Learning the Practice of Unplugging
Taking time to unplug from everyday life and take a spiritual retreat is an important spiritual practice. That is why we offer two different camp experiences each year. You will receive the Wapo Badge after attending either a week at Wapo on the CAMP TRACK – OR – The Weekend Retreat as part of the WEDNESDAY TRACK.
