Flyte 56: 5th-6th
CrossCity Fresno now has its very own Preteen Ministry that will incorporate two Sunday morning worship services, small groups, discipleship and service opportunities, camps, Faithgirlz, Christ Warriors, recreational events, and more! Our new ministry is called “Flyte 56.” The word “Flyte” is a blend of the words, Faith, Life and Together (well, loosely!), and it is also the name of the preteen curriculum from Lifeway that we are using for this age group. It is our desire and goal at CrossCity to prepare our preteens to take off and fly with their faith. The “56” stands for 5th and 6th grade.
Here are a few more things you need to know:
● Take-Home Papers. Each week, your child will receive a handout that they will review with their small group. I encourage you to help them prepare a Flyte 56 notebook at home to put these in, so when they spend their quiet time with God, they can review and meditate on what they are studying.
● Flyte Games. Whenever there is a fifth Sunday, we will have what has become a popular event – Flyte 56 Games. On that day, we will eat food, play crazy games and encourage kids to Bring A Friend (BAF).
● Mid-India Child Sponsorship. Our group sponsors a little boy from the Oasis of Love ministry through Mid-India Mission. The monthly sponsorship is $50.00. We will have an offering box available in the Flyte room each week for the preteens’ tithes and offerings to go to this purpose.
● Christ Warriors and Faithgirlz. Your preteen will not want to miss these special meetings! Christ Warriors meets on the first & third Saturdays of each month, in the Willow House, from 4:00-5:30. Faithgirlz meets the first Saturday of the month, in room 201 in the kids’ building, from 4:00-5:30. You can pre-register by using this link, and then when you arrive, you can sign your child in on the kiosk:
