We offer a youth group style setting that is adapted to meet 5th and 6th graders at their level of understanding. Our goal for each Tween is for them to have a grasp on who Christ is, what he did and how that should affect our daily lives.
We believe that this is a critical age for our students and that they need to have a firm grasp on the Bible so that when the student faces all the things life will throw at them, they will be able to react and respond in a way pleasing to God.
