We know how fun, exciting, crazy, and confusing life can be for students, and we also know that a relationship with Christ is so important at their age. So we are passionate about investing in the lives of 5th and 6th graders so that they can be growing followers of Jesus who love God and love people!

What To Expect

When does Route 56 meet?

Route 56 is our ministry for students in Grades 5 and 6 and meets during regular service times (9am and 11am) on Sunday mornings.

5th Sundays

When there are five Sundays in a month we don’t meet for Route 56 on the fifth Sunday. This is intentional because we want to be purposeful in having 56ers acclimate and connect in the main service as well as in their age-specific area. This gives students several chances each year to hear Pastor Matt’s heart and to worship with the church together. This is a really big deal! As a parent, you can encourage your 56er to go with an open heart and be ready for what God has for them.

What's it like at Route 56?

At Route 56 we have a ton of FUN! Your 5th or 6th grader will hear a message, meet with a regular small group, form new friendships, and worship together. Fifth and 6th graders will grow closer to Jesus and discover valuable friendships with other kids and leaders!
