4/5 Preteens

4th&5th graders are in that in-between stage: not little kids, but not quite teens. That's why we've started this new ministry just for them! Right now, it's only available at 84th St. at 9:30am.

4/5 Preteens

Dear CornerKids 4th & 5th Grade Parents,

Recently our 4th and 5th grade children took a field trip to Base Camp with their small group leaders to talk about an exciting new ministry we’re launching at the 84th St. Campus called 4/5 Preteen. It officially starts January 6, 2019 at 9:30am in Base Camp, and will be available each Sunday after that during the 9:30am Service, only at 84th St. (Important Note: If your family normally attends the 11am Service at 84th, there will no longer be programming for 4th&5th Grades during that service.)

As a Family Ministry Team, we started having conversations about a Preteen Ministry a few years ago. We’ve noticed that 4th & 5th graders start ‘checking out’ of CornerKids because they’re not little kids anymore, and they’re not quite teenagers; they are a unique group that exists in the most “in between” space in the church. Because this is a unique group, they need a unique ministry to reach them and keep them connected as they transition to middle school.

We took time to introduce your child to Base Camp because that’s where 4/5 Preteen will meet starting in January. (Some kids have never seen or been in this space!) We also started a conversation with them about this new ministry and got their feedback on what they would like to see and experience every Sunday.

I encourage you to talk to your child about the trip they took today and ask them what they think and feel about 4/5 Preteen. We’ll be getting more information to you about this new ministry as we get closer to launching.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or comments!
