About Us

56ers exists to build a fun Christian community and a firm foundation of biblical knowledge that will see students through their middle and high school years. Whether you have questions about God and faith, or have already decided to follow Jesus, our goal is to help you take your next step toward a deeper relationship with God.  Come join us on the journey!

Get Involved

 We are on the lookout for passionate people to join our 56ers volunteer team. If you have a relationship with Jesus, free Wednesday nights, and a sense of humor, you’re more than qualified! Contact Kurt or Kelly for more information.

Sunday Mornings

We gather at 9am in the 56ers room for Bible study and prayer. We are finishing a study on 1 & 2 Timothy in May. We are then moving into a discussion on the book of Acts; this is in conjunction with the current teaching series happening in our large church gatherings.

Wednesday Nights

May 23rd is our last 56ers night for the school year.
