Preteen is a time where we are attempting to bridge the gap between childhood and teen years. It is a very important foundational time when preteens are beginning to figure out who they are and whose they are. There are other activities throughout the year in addition to Connect Groups that help us build on this foundation, including Disciple Now (D-NOW), 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.
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.
