Pre-Teen Ministry

4th-5th Grade

Note: Regular Sunday morning programming has been moved to Monday nights (see below for details). 

Our pre-teen ministry is the “sweet spot” between our younger Elementary and Middle School classes!  These 9, 10, and 11-year-olds are ready to think critically, ask deeper questions, and begin to take responsibility for their own faith! It’s a safe place to share hopes and doubts, make good friends, and dig into scripture! Lessons are set up in interactive ways that encourage discovery, growth, and fun, while always pointing to God's great love and plan for us!

Curriculum

In our preteen ministry, instead of simply teaching by providing the right information, we support their learning through discovery within the lessons we’ve set up through our curriculum, Deeply Rooted. Instead of simply telling preteens how their faith affects their lives, we create environments and resources through which they can begin to make their own correlations and connections between scripture and daily life right here in the world we live in. Instead of giving them all the answers about God, Jesus, the Bible, and what they teach about life, we invite them to voice their own questions, to think critically, and then guide them in finding answers.  Instead of telling them what they should be doing, we create opportunities to discover how God is calling them to bring God’s kingdom to life in the world.

Monday Night Group

Monday nights  |  6:15-7:30pm

Pre-teens are different than other grades, and they are a very important piece of our Family Ministry! Call it a bridge, if you will, between our kid ministry and our middle school classes. With fun games, deep conversation, and social events, we feel it’s the perfect place for them to meet Christ, know Him, and to follow Him on their own accord. We look forward to gathering together as a group on Monday nights from 6:15-7:30.
