Route 56 serves preteens from 5th and 6th grade up to the age of 13. This ministry exists to walk alongside parents in teaching and modeling the gospel during one of life's most difficult transitional times. We envision preteens progressing from learning scriptural truths to applying those truths while continuing to learn those truths at a deeper level. Pre-teens involved in ministry will be able to safely explore the "what" and "why" of Christianity while focusing on cultivating their personal character to be deeply rooted in their belief of God and His word. Route 56 meets every Sunday during service times and we host quarterly events called Pit Stops; which provide an environment for preteens to gather together for some fun and to intentionally build relationships with each other and with the team.
