Fifth graders are at a tough transitional age. They are feeling old enough not to hang out with kids in Kids Connect anymore, but not old enough to join Alpha & Omega Student Ministries. There is a lot of change mentally, physically, socially, spiritually, and emotionally ahead (if not already beginning). Fifth graders need something of their own to talk about issues relating to just them.
First Friday for Fifth Graders is an opportunity for 5th graders to build commonality and make friends so when they join Alpha on Mondays during late summer, they will be ready. We hang out in the Youth room. Eat some dinner. Play some games. And have a serious talk about God, His Word, and what it all means for a 5th grader.
All 5th graders are welcomed. First Friday of each month, 6 pm – 7:30 pm.
