"Tweens" 5th & 6th Grade



The "Tweens" group at Lakeside is called AREA 56. These students spend time "Discovering the Mysteries of God." One of the goals of this ministry is to equip our 6th grade students to be leaders before they move to youth group. This group also gives 5th grade students a chance to spend time in more age appropriate activities and subject matter.  AREA 56 is a transitional ministry that focuses on age-specific ministry to our 5th and 6th grade students.
