5th & 6th Grade

5th & 6th Grade

Pier 56 is more than a class for 5th & 6th grade students; it’s a community where preteens can connect with their peers and with their leaders in a way that fosters fun and learning to love God.

We believe students can be discipled and trained for leadership from an early age, therefore, Pier 56 has a student leadership.

Pier 56 also has quarterly events and students have the opportunity to attend winter & summer camp.

Location

AWANA

​​The AWANA Club is a Bible-centered children's/youth ministry for 3yr-olds through 6th grade which meets weekly during the school year. The evening consists of games, devotional time, scripture memorization and handbook work.  

The word AWANA stands for "Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed" and comes from 2 Timothy 2:15. Each year we are excited to see how God will use AWANA for His glory. All of our workers involved with your children love the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior, and it is our sincere desire to help everyone involved to grow in the Lord. The AWANA program is unique in that it helps our children learn about God, exposes them to the Gospel of Christ, helps them hide God's word in their heart, and is a fun and exciting evening.
