Connecting with others through relationships at church is vitally important to the faith development of fifth and sixth graders.  Our Preteens learn a lot about the love of God, a lot about themselves, and a lot about what it means to BE church together.  Preteens have opportunities to lead in worship several times through out the year.  


  • Sunday Morning Bible Study (9:45-10:45 am)
    Creative teaching and fellowship activities are planned with the Preteen in mind.
  • Blueprint Workshop (5:00-6:30 pm)
    Preteens focus on Bible skills through some creative fun.



Graded Choirs (5:45-6:30 pm) Preteens sing in the Children's Choir. For more information go to the music page.  (6:30-7:15 pm)
Preteens have their own mission education group. They learn about missions in the US and around the world using various approaches and learn to pray for those involved in mission. They are also encouraged to serve in mission opportunities such as Hands of Christ Day.

Tuesday Morning Devotions (7:00-7:30 am during the school year)
We gather at Chick-Fil-A for a dutch treat breakfast during the school year to discuss relevant topics and share a devotional.  We try to arrange car pools to school if needed.
