Upper Elementary (Grades 5-6)


“And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.” (Luke 2:52 )

As the children of Eastbrook Church grow, we encourage them to ask questions and study the Bible so their faith walk will grow as well.

Sunday Services

On Sunday mornings, kids in Grades 5-6 will pray, read Scripture, discuss what happened and learn how to apply Scripture to their lives. Hands-on activities and projects help to reinforce learning.


FIRST SERVICE (8 AM)

5th & 6th graders are encouraged to worship with their families in the Worship Hall from 8-8:20 am. At this time, they are dismissed to participate in the C.R.E.D.O. choir in Room B228 during first service. Here, children learn to worship God by learning His word and singing His praises. Learn more about Kids Choirs here.

SECOND SERVICE (9:30 AM)

5th-6th grades use the Deeply Rooted curriculum, a three-year rotation developed for preteens. Students focus each quarter on a name of God and what that name reveals about who God is. They learn how God transforms their lives and spend time being intentionally discipled in spiritual practices to help deepen their faith life. In the spring, 6th grade students will learn more about baptism and communion as part of the Belief Faithmarker.

THIRD SERVICE (11 AM)

During third hour, kids in grades 5-8 can participate in Dance Eternal 2 in the Gym or attend Sunday School in the A-Wing (Lower Level).


Take Note

Communion & Baptism:
6th Grade Faith Marker

At twelve years of age students wrestle with many questions about faith. They begin to move from blindly accepting their parents’ faith to taking ownership of their faith. 6th graders are encouraged to ask tough questions and to investigate who God is as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. A part of their preparation for Communion and Baptism they are asked to write about who God is in their lives and share this testimony with others. Students who have made a commitment to follow Jesus and want to participate in Communion and Baptism are then given this opportunity the first weeks of June.
