Planet 56 for 5th & 6th Graders

earth.jpg

Not exactly a child anymore and not quite a teenager, fifth and sixth graders are unique (from another planet? No!). In order to minister to their unique needs, we have created a special really cool planet just for them--Planet 56. Planet 56 includes Sunday School on Sunday morning, Missions and more on Wednesday nights, and other special activities just for them. They also have their very own room (off limits to younger children and teenagers) decorated with a space theme. Just like Planet 51 (see the movie Planet 51) learned to welcome people who are different, so too Planet 56 is a welcome place for all 5th & 6th graders.
