It’s easy to be “hearers” of the Word and not “doers.” However, God calls us to take action and not be stagnant in our faith. Our mission for 5th and 6th graders is to ignite a fire that motivates, drives, and consumes their lives. Ministry is more than just “head knowledge.” It’s taking what we learn and impacting our schools, communities, and world.

Sunday mornings at 9:30am and 11:00am “Ignite Groups” meets downstairs in the preteen auditorium and after a brief opening session they will be dismissed to their small group class The Ignite Groups use the FLYTE curriculum. FLYTE answers preteens’ toughest questions by actively engaging them in the study of God’s Word.
Wednesday evenings are an exciting time for preteens. Ignite Team offers ministry training and allows preteens to be active in our community through mission events. Ignite Team meets each Wednesday during the school year, 6:00 – 6:30pm. Ignite Team consists of several different ministry teams in which preteens can be involved. Teams include Creative Ministries, Drama, Praise Band, Worship Team, Tech/Stage, and Missions. Preteens involved in Ignite Team also have the opportunity to go on mission trip during the summer.

Ignite Live is a time of worship for all 5th and 6th graders. Ignite Live meets each Wednesday during the school year, 6:30pm – 7:45pm. Ignite Live meets in the preteen room for live worship, fun large group interactive games, and a biblical message focused around issues facing their generation. The best thing is everyone is welcome…so bring your friends!
