Sundays @ 56

10:30 am | Lower Level in Pier 56

This is a high energy setting for preteens with godly leaders who love working with kids and leading them to Christ through Bible study, thoughtful discussion, engaging games, intentional relationship building time, student leadership, and more.

Preteens are placed into age/gender based groups with leaders who stay with them for the two years they are in 56.  Mentoring is the focus of these leaders as they get to know and interact with the kids.

Follow us on our Facebook Page.

If you have any questions about 56, feel free to contact the 56 Coordinator, Matt Noble.  We meet on the lower level in the Pier 56 Room.
