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.
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.

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.
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.
Kids Clubs for Grades 3-6 meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month. Students participate in gym time, a study of God’s Word, and time to have fellowship with their friends. Special events through the year include Gift Making Night in December and Pinewood Derby
in the spring.
