Sundays at 9:00am in Room 136

Friendships with other students and identification with Christ begin as students and leaders share in the challenges and joys of the preteen experience.

On weekends, we focus on several different ares of the Bible to learn more about who God is and what He wants for our lives.  Time includes discussion and connection with other students and leaders. We also have a time of worship together. Students are encouraged to attend the Sun 10:30 service with family.

Wednesday Nights

6:30-8pm – Students check in at the Welcome Desk and meet in Room 136. They will dive deep into God’s word for a Bible study and discussion afterwards in small groups as well as a time of worship.

Follows the Awana schedule
