Preteen Ministries













Preteens are the forgotten age group that no one is really sure  what to do with.  Sometimes they clearly fit into the children's ministry and other times they seem much more apt for student ministry.  Designating a preteen study, a class specifically for preteens and intorducing social activities combines the best of both worlds by giving them time to act older and also time to still be a kid.







Sunday School

Meets Sundays mornings at 9:00 am


Bible Studies for Life is the curriculum used for the
Btween Sunday School Class.  Teachers use creative
teaching techniques, stories, and hands-on learning.
Each session focuses on one main point and one
Scripture with content that is conceptually aligned
for preteens.
AWANA - Truth & Training   

Meets Wednesday evenings @ 6:00 - 7:00 pm

T&T engages kids by answering their questions about

God and the Bible, guiding them through this pivotal life

stage to grow in Christ’s grace. Handbooks and large-group

lessons deepen a child’s knowledge about God and His

Word and teach how to put that knowledge into action

in everyday life.

Extra Fun!

There are many special activities including conferences,

CentriKid Camp, seasonal shopping trips, and lunch

outings designed to meet the very specific spiritual and

emotional needs of preteens.
