Preteen (grades 4-5)

We believe that preteens are one of the most unique age groups that we can minister to. They're at an age where they're starting to take hold of core ideas, develope personal values and own their own beliefs. It’s natural for them to begin asking questions like: “What am I good at?” and “Where do I fit in?” Too often, by lumping them in with childrens or youth ministries those questions go unanswered. Through age appropraite teaching, worship and games, and the influence of our dedicated youth coaches and parents, our hope is that we would help our preteens amplify God's call on their lives. This is done by helping them take hold of God's Word, own their own faith and develop their own personal values.
