Tween Ministry - Club 56
All current 5th and 6th graders are invited to a monthly gathering on the 3rd Sunday of the month. This helps younger students begin a healthy spiritual discipline of regular attendance and youth fellowship.
The youth meet with their mentors the third Sunday of every month from 12:00-2:00 p.m. to study the Scriptures through various art forms. Adult experts in film-making, cooking, social media and more are invited to listen to the stories
Each summer, the youth take a mission trip to grow in service, learn about the world, and create deeper bonds with one another. Mission trips have included Heifer Ranch with Global Village experience, inner-city mission work with the homeless, and Mountain T.O.P. in Tennessee. Local mission opportunities are through Wesley-Rankin in West Dallas, North Dallas Shared Ministries, and every fourth Sunday by assisting our children's ministry through the "Kids in Mission" program. Check out the video for our mission trip to the Navajo Nation in Arizona, June 24-July 1, 2017.
In the spring, over Martin Luther King Junior weekend, students attend the Civil Rights Bus tour, going to the most important locations of major civil rights movements.
Youth raise funds to help defray the cost of mission trips and our annual Civil Rights Bus Tour. Fundraisers include our annual Valentine's Banquet, The Purple Throne, Flamingo Flocking, and Pancake Breakfast. In April each year, we sponsor a Community Garage Sale for community members to come and sell garage sale and craft items.
