A ministry dedicated to connecting preteen students with God and each other. Our program is for students in grades 5 and 6. Within our Route 56 program your student can participate in Sunday School, Connections, and/or Bible Study. We invite you to take a look at our Route 56 programming opportunities below for more information.
Sunday Mornings & Evenings
- Sunday School 9:45-10:45 a.m. | Room 120
Students develop a passion for God’s word and continue to nourish their lifelong relationship with God as they enjoy doughnuts and spend time studying scripture through large group devotions and small group activities.
- Connections 4:30-6:30 p.m. | Room 120 & 148
On Sunday nights students and leaders engage in large and small group activities, enjoy a meal, and fellowship with one another. Through music and drumming, we will experience fun, creative ways to worship in order to build community, explore our faith, and learn more about God’s character together. With the music we learn, we will have the opportunity to participate in worship services here in our church, as well as out in the community/world on Music and Mission trips.
- Bible Study 5:00-6:00 p.m. | Room 120
Students build relationships with their peers and leaders while spending concentrated time in prayer and discovery of God’s word in a small Bible study setting.
Make Check-in Quicker
Adult volunteers in Sunday School will greet students and their parents as they come in and encourage and engage with students during activities. It is such a fun hour full of building community and learning more about the character of God! We ask that each family sign up to serve in Sunday School once a semester.
- Donut Signups
RT 56 Students can look forward to enjoying a donut in Sunday School each week! This is always a treat for our 5th and 6th graders and many of them deem it one of their favorite parts of the program. We ask that each family sign up to bring donuts once a semester in order to make this happen!
