Grace56 is a ministry designed to be a bridge between elementary and youth. We believe that caring for this distinct age group is so important. Our values are love + grow + serve + share. We want our 5th and 6th graders (56ers) to love Jesus more every day. We desire to see our 56ers grow in their understanding of the Bible by discovering core truths and living them out. We hope that 56ers will see the value of service to those around them. And last but not least, our goal is that Grace56 would be an outward-focused ministry that challenges our 56ers to share what they are learning with those around them.

Small Groups

Small groups are the heartbeat of Grace56. Each small group is a place where 56ers can have open discussions about life using the Bible as their foundation.

Free Time

FUN is an important component for ministry in Grace56. Free time involves 4-square and time to hang out with friends and leaders.


Each campus has a Grace56 worship leader who leads a live worship time.

Big Group

Every week a leader kicks off the lesson with a 3-5 minute teaching point that prepares 56ers for small group discussions.

Wednesday Night

Wednesday nights are similar to Sunday. There is free time, a teaching point and small groups. Wednesday nights have a fresh energy as 56ers from all three campuses come together!


Want an opportunity to hang out with 5th and 6th graders in an intentional setting? This age is so impressionable and we would love to have you serve!
