Welcome to Grade 5-6 at Heartland Alliance Church!
At Heartland we call our Grade 5-6 Students – 56ers. We believe this is one of the most pivotal age groups in the church as these kids are at a key transitional phase in their young lives. They are moving away from being little kids who follow and trust everything that is put in front of them and moving towards becoming independent adolescents who are asking important questions about whom they are and who God is?
It is because of this unique time in their lives that it is important to have a specific area focusing on 56ers. Within this area the kids will have some familiar experiences from their Children’s Program days but there will also be new experiences to help prepare them for being part of the broader Youth Program when they enter Grade 7.
The 56ers have a small group/classroom experience during every weekend service with the exception of Family Service weekends and Gate Takeover weekends. They will also have a once-a-month Friday event for just their age group that is fun and will help build group community. 56ers can also participate in a bi-weekly Small Group on Monday nights at the church. There is a group for the boys and a group for the girls.
If you have children in Grade 5-6, we invite you to come be part of our community!
