What is 4-5-6?
4-5-6 is our ministry for 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. Think of it as an “intro to youth ministry”. They are at a unique age where they are growing quickly and moving from abstract to concrete thinking. They often feel as though they are ready to move up from Sunday School but are not quite ready for youth ministry (even if they think they are!). Having a specific program for them will give us the opportunity to meet their unique needs and provide a safe space for them as they grow and mature into... teens... eeek! We believe that this age is so important in the development of what they believe and who they become and we want to be there to love and support them. There is research that says what a student believes spiritually by the age of 13 is what they will believe for their entire life. How amazing that we get an opportunity to help guide them at this important stage!
