"Planet 56" was created specifically for our 5th and 6th graders —
the age group often referred to as "tweens". Valley has created a space just for them! Our hope is that Planet 56 will help students transition more smoothly from elementary school to middle school, and from being active in Children's Ministries to participating in youth group.
We also hope that by sharing in a few experiences throughout the year, the kids will develop closer connections with one another. As these children progress through this ministry at church, they will increasingly do things together, from worship to Sunday School to a Pre-teen Disciple Now weekend to bond and learn more about Jesus. Stronger relationships among the tweens of the group can only make those experiences more meaningful.
