Fifth & Sixth Grades

On Sunday mornings, 5th and 6th graders meet in their own special space using curriculum geared just to them!  We understand this is a pivotal time in their faith journey and work to expand their biblical knowledge, as well as help them dig deeper in their understanding. 

Submerge In The Word On Sunday Mornings

  • Submerge meets in our newly renovated Den space between services from 10:10 - 11:10 a.m.
  • This class starts with an essential time of fellowship and food!
  • The Submerge curriculum encourages tweens to dig deeper into the Bible, ask tough questions, and creatively engage their faith.  
  • Students use a reflective log/journal/sketchbook that allows students to write, draw, sketch, and reflect while engaging in faith formation. Composed of weekly prompts that encourage creative thinking and playful reflection on the Bible story and prayer.
  • Each week our teachers use fun and inspiring videos to spark discussion about applying Scripture to everyday experiences.
  • Students in Submerge take turns supporting our TOTS in training class with puppet presentations once a month during Sunday School.

   Leading in worship, 5th - 8th graders work together to present the gospel using Black Light.  This is a great presentation style for kids who don't like to be in the spotlight.
