5th & 6th Grade - ALL

Many 10- to 12-year-olds are leaving childhood behind, but aren’t quite teenagers. So where do they fit? Right here in Crossings 56!

This ministry is designed uniquely for 5th and 6th graders. We understand that they are maturing and ready to own their faith, but still want to have fun while doing it. We want to empower preteens to grow and develop, to learn and to question, and to discover who God has made them to be.

When do we meet?

Edmond – Sunday, 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. – Wednesday, 6:30 p.m.
OKC – Sunday, 9:15 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. – Wednesday, 6:30 p.m.

What to Expect

Crossings 56 includes time to hang out with friends, worship, large group teaching, and Bible study time, all of which allow our students an opportunity to grow in relationships with each other and adult leaders.

Next Steps For Kids

Has your child been asking what it means to be a Christian? Is he/she wondering about baptism, why we take communion, or what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Next Steps For Kids, offered to 2nd-6th grade students, focuses on these objectives. There is no charge for this class — dinner and materials are included.

A parent session is offered to cover what the children learn at Next Steps For Kids and what their next step should be. Next Steps For Kids meets on various Sundays throughout the year. Check out our events section below to see our next upcoming date!

Check-In

Your child’s safety is important to us. That’s why all children must be checked in by a parent using one of the check-in stations located throughout the building. You’ll receive a name tag for your child and a corresponding tag for you. You must show your corresponding tag in order to pick up your child from his/her classroom.
