Preteen Ministry

THE PRETEEN SCENE
Designed Exclusively For 5-6th Graders
A Ministry by preteens, for preteens, with preteens!


PRETEEN MINISTRY GOALS:

To get closer to God by making Him #1 in our lives.
To get closer to each other by deepening our friendships.
To challenge ourselves and others to do the best we can do, and all we can do, for God and His Kingdom!

PRETEEN EVENTS
About every 6 weeks, we’ll enjoy a special activity, sometimes for fun, sometimes to help others, but always to get ourselves closer to God! Information about these events will be available at least three weeks prior to the events, and will be handed out during regular church activities. At times, dates may be changed or switched to accommodate other church events. Reservations need to be made in advance for most events, and a permission form must be completed for each event. Younger siblings are not allowed to participate in these events; this is for preteens only. PARENTS SHOULD PLAN TO CHAPERONE AT LEAST 1-2 EVENTS PER YEAR Participating in Whole Event:
For most of these events, preteens need to be present for the entire event. This is especially true for Overnights. While we realize that preteens may have to, at times, choose between this event and other activities, the benefits of having the whole group together for the whole event are worth striving for.
