Fifth and Sixth graders are ready to be challenged with bigger ideas and activities, but they are not quite teenagers. Our Sunday and Wednesday programs are specially designed for their age, and intentionally keep them enthusiastic about church and growing in their faith!

Sunday Mornings

9:15 am - 10:30 am, September - June

Impact kids meet upstairs (access through the gym lobby by the coffee service) on Sunday mornings.

The Impact Sunday School teachers recognize this pre-teen stage of life as a critical time for kids to not only learn about their faith, but to own it for themselves. Impact kids are encouraged to ask tough questions they may have been wrestling with, and to solidify their faith through positive interactions with mentors and peers.

Your child will be challenged to really dig down deep into the Bible and to understand God’s Word and the Christian faith. Discipleship training is done by developing levels of both biblical learning and Bible skills according to age. 

Biblical learning includes concepts such as God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, the Bible, creation, family, self, church, community/world, prayer, and salvation.

Bible skills include understanding how to find books and verses, identifying Bible people, explaining God’s plan of salvation, and memorizing verses.

Impact kids learn reverence for God and respect for His Word, along with an understanding of how to apply Bible concepts to their lives. They are encouraged to develop the habit of daily Bible reading and prayer.

Also, during a special month of Summer Sunday School in June, children learn about missionaries and their work around the globe. This includes an opportunity to give an offering to support the missionaries, which instills in the children the importance of giving and building their faith.

Wednesday Nights

6:30 - 8:00 pm, September - April

Our Wednesday night program begins in the gym with active group games, and then the group moves upstairs for an engaging large group lesson, snacks, and a time in small groups to explore the lesson further and to apply it to their lives.

The Impact leaders recognize this pre-teen stage of life as a critical time for kids to not only learn about their faith, but to own it for themselves. Impact kids are encouraged to ask tough questions they may have been wrestling with, and to solidify their faith through positive interactions with mentors and peers.

As part of our dynamic Wednesday night program, we offer opportunities for these kids to do service projects to better our community and make an IMPACT for God’s Kingdom.
