What we do
5th-6th graders live in a fast-paced world, with a lot of different voices coming at them at once, and it can be exciting and confusing at the same time. Without question, they are at a point in life where they are discovering who they are and what they believe. That is why now, more than ever, they need to hear God speaking to them.
We exist to help 5th-6th graders know and cultivate a relationship with the God of the Bible.
FIFTY6 is an environment specially tailored to help 5th-6th graders sort out their faith. With relevant messages, fun games, devoted leaders, heartfelt small group discussions, intentional family worship, and impactful events, these young men and women are led to engage with God and each other in meaningful ways.
fifty6 gathers on Sunday mornings at 9AM & 11AM.
5th-6th graders spend roughly 50-80 hours each year in a church environment...and that's if they attend camps, retreats and other experiences. Compare that to the over 3000 hours children spend with parents.
nobody has more time and influence with 5th-6th graders than you. TOGETHER, as the church, WE CAN MAXIMIZE THE OVERALL INFLUENCE THAT WE HAVE WITH our 5TH-6TH GRADERS
CURRENT TEACHING SERIES
Nothing can bring out the crazy in you quite like family. Am I right? Deep down you know they probably aren’t plotting to make your life difficult, but some days it feels like that is exactly what they’re doing. Maybe that’s why we tend to respond to our family the same way we respond to sports or a video game—we strategize. You make a move to get what you want, but your step-brother blocks you. So, you make a different move. And so does he. It’s endless. Literally. Because unlike other relationships in our lives, the one we have with our family isn’t going anywhere. You can quit a sports team. You can leave the marching band. You can graduate and leave your classmates behind. But your family? They’ll always be your family. That’s why it’s such a big deal that we figure out how to live with them now. Thankfully, the Bible has a lot to say about how we live with and treat other people. And while it probably won’t help you figure out how to get your sister to leave the bathroom in under an hour, it can give you some real, helpful advice on how to make the best move when it comes to the people who love you and aggravate you the most—your family.
You have an incredible role in raising your kids to know God. We want to provide you with practical resources to help you engage with them at home.
5th-6th graders are presented will all kinds of different music that contains all kinds of different messages. We want to leverage every aspect of our environment to help shape their world-view. That being said...
check out WHAT WE ARE PLAYING IN FIFTY6
FIFTY6 has a lot of fun, and we enjoy being together. A major part of of how we do this is by hosting great monthly events for 5th-6th graders and their friends. These are created to help 5th-6th graders build meaningful friendships and experience God together throughout the year. Whether we're rock-climbing, paint-balling, serving together, going on Retreat, going to KIDWEEK, or going to CAMP...we keep it exciting!
THESE ARE MORE THAN JUST EVENTS. THESE ARE OPPORTUNITIES FOR 5TH-6TH GRADERS TO IMPACT their peers AND ENTIRE FAMILIES FOR JESUS. IT ONLY TAKES ONE INVITATION.
FRIDAY NIGHT FRENZIES
Hosted quarterly at Church Project, Friday Night Frenzies are designed to PROVIDE a fun and consistent environment for 5th-6th graders to hang out as well as an opportunity for them to invite their friends to come to church. In turns out that many 5th-6th graders have expressed this to be one of their favorite things that we do in FIFTY6. They get to enjoy pizza, cotton-candy, fun music, and crazy games. DON'T MISS THEM!
