Preteens are in an ‘in-between’ time of their life where they’re not really kids anymore, but they’re not teenagers either. Because of the ‘in-between’ nature of this age, it often leaves kids with questions about friendship, identity, and how to live out their faith. We desire to answer these questions while providing an equally ‘in-between’ type of ministry that helps transition preteen’s from being in Kids Ministry to Student Ministry.
The new Preteen Ministry will take place on Sunday Mornings during both gatherings (9:10am and 10:45am), and each service will be identical. We will launch on Sunday August 11!
Here’s a taste of what preteens will experience Sunday morning: Once preteens are checked-in for the morning, they will be dropped off in their own hang-out space until the service starts. When service begins, preteens will go to small groups with their leaders where they will study God’s Word together. Mid-way through the service, preteens will transition to large group where they will worship and hear a message designed specifically for their age group. From there, parents can pick-up their preteens from the Warehouse.
HYPE- August 6, 10:00am-1:00pm
HYPE is a launch party at GPC for the new Preteen Ministry! Incoming 4th-6th graders are invited to HYPE in order to help familiarize them with the new ministry and their small group. At HYPE, kids will compete small group vs. small group, have a time of teaching and worship just like they will find on Sunday mornings, and learn and experience what the preteen ministry will be like. Pizza will be served for lunch (bring your own lunch if your child cannot/will not eat pizza). Email Tyler@ GracePointChurch.net to let us know your child is coming.
