Covenant of Service

During Sunday morning group time, tweens explore their own God-given spiritual gifts, and they’re discovering ways to use those gifts to serve in God’s kingdom. With their small group leaders they talk about ways to serve within the FPC community.

Below are brief descriptions of the ministry opportunities provided for 4th, 5th & 6th graders:

YC&W Helper

Young Children & Worship (YC&W) is a ministry that helps 4, 5 and 6 year olds smoothly transition from the nursery to worship in the Sanctuary during the 8:30 and 11:00 services. Tweens assist the leaders as needed.

Junior Nursery Helper

As a Junior Nursery Helper, your tween will get to love on the littlest in our midst by reading them a story during either the 8:30 or 11:00 service.

Serving Together

Each grade level (1st – 6th) has been assigned a ministry partnership through their Sunday school group, but families and tweens are welcome to donate to or volunteer with any agency. Also, 4th-6th graders have an opportunity to work with several agencies through Mission Camp this summer.
