(Preteen Department – 5th & 6th Grades)
Connect Groups – For this age group, we have Connect Groups during both 9:00am and 10:30am on Sunday mornings. Preteens should attend a Connect Group during the same hour their parents attend a Connect Group, and then they will attend worship with you.
Our teachers are trained adults who have been called by God to give out God’s Word to preteens. We use the Bible as our text, games to reinforce and any other activity needed to allow these children to understand the concept taught.
Preteen is a time where we are attempting to bridge the gap between childhood and teen years. It is a very important foundational time where these preteens are trying to begin figuring out who they are and whose they are. There are other activities throughout the year that help us build on this foundation, including Disciple Now (DNOW), a hay ride/bonfire, as well as Christmas caroling for the shut-ins. When these preteens leave us and join our Student Ministry, we want them to be emotionally, physically and spiritually ready to make this big change.
