Quest 56 is a safe place for 5th and 6th grade students to explore faith in Jesus and discover what it means to love God, grow together and reach the world. Students experience fun activities that encourage positive relationships with peers and adult leaders, engage in dynamic Bible-based teaching, and participate in grade-level and gender-specific small groups that create space for them to ask questions and dig deeper into God’s Word.
Sunday mornings at 9:45, students gather in the Quest 56 room to worship together and continue learning about God through large group, in-depth Bible lessons and grade level/ gender-specific small groups designed to help students strengthen their relationship with Jesus and others. We build on lessons learned in kindergarten through 4th grade by continuing The Gospel Project curriculum to help students on the quest of living their lives according to God’s plan. During the 8:15 and 11:15 hours, 5th and 6th grade students are welcome to join our elementary programming that is combined for grades K–6. Students still have the opportunity to participate in small groups according to their grade level.
Quest 56 kicks off its Wednesday night program on September 14, from 6:30–8:00 pm, and continues through April. Wednesday nights are designed to offer a safe and fun environment for 5th and 6th graders to invite friends to learn together what it means to follow Jesus. Students start off the night in the gym, participating in wacky and challenging group games and activities before transitioning to the Quest 56 room, where large-group teaching and small-group discussions provide the opportunity for students to open the Bible and discover for themselves what God says in His Word. Students who wish to continue with Awana are welcome to join Quest 56 and continue with their handbooks. There is no cost to join Quest 56 Wednesdays, but students must register using the form below.
Throughout the year, Quest 56 sponsors special events which are typically held away from the church campus, offering students an opportunity to have fun with their friends and leaders, building relationships and creating memories together.
