5th-6th Grade

The Tween years are an exciting time for our young friends.  They are in-beTWEEN childhood and adolescents and are beginning to ask more questions, achieve more goals, and form their own unique identity.  Testing the boundaries of childhood and stepping into adolescents can be tough to navigate, and that’s where Route 56 comes in.  This ministry is a bridge from Children’s Ministry to Youth Ministry, and it is designed to help the Tweens to have a smooth transition, take on new challenges, and begin to realize their identity as a beloved child of God.

Tuesday evenings are filled with opportunities for our Tweens!  At 5:30 they are invited to have dinner in Mercer Hall.  Tweens are encouraged to participate in the Wesley Singers practice from 6:00-6:30.  This will be followed by games and small group time in The Avenue from 6:30-7:40.  We will be using the curriculum “Connect” by Sparkhouse, which is specially designed for this age group.  Through videos and discussion, the Tweens will learn Bible stories, themes, and connect them to their own life.
