Preteens are the forgotten age group that no one is really sure what to do with. Sometimes they clearly fit into the children's ministry and other times they seem much more apt for student ministry. Preteens are at an age where they need to be challenged in their faith and grow to know and love God’s Word. This ministry is designed specifically for 4th, 5th & 6th grade which combines the best of children and student ministries by giving them time to act older and also time to still be a kid.
SUNDAY MORNING | 9:00AM & 10:30AM
We believe that the most effective learning happens through relationships, we offer classes at BOTH the 9:00AM and 10:30AM hour. Preteens will take a deeper look at what the bible says and experience fun, hands on activities to further connect with the day's lesson. Each hour is a different presentation of the lesson with different leaders for each hour. At 10:30AM preteens will move, as a group, to the sanctuary to participate in worship then return to their room for lesson.
SUNDAY NIGHT | 6:00PM to 8:00PM (Seasonal)
We believe that our preteens need the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus. On Sunday nights we will give them those opportunities through service projects. Some projects will be off campus, but parents will be notified when this is the case.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT | 6:00PM to 8:00PM
We will take the preteens from Creation to Restoration. Telling the Story of the Bible disciples our preteens better than any other approach. These stories guide preteens through the key turning points of Scripture and help them learn to engage, discuss and connect the dots of God’s story.
