Preteens | Route 56

While 5th and 6th graders at First Baptist Jackson have Sunday School groups and activities through the Children's Ministry, we've carved out a little something extra to meet their needs.

Welcome to Route 56 (Preteen Ministry for 5th & 6th Grade)

The Route 56 Ministry seeks to teach preteens a deeper understanding of who God is and how to apply the truth of His Word to their lives.

These students meet on Sunday evenings at 6:00 pm to discuss real life issues and what God’s Word says about handling them as they arise.

Throughout the year, Route 56 serves the community and the local church during weeks like Vacation Bible School.   Fun events like Moonlight Madness keep these guys and girls plugged in and involved!

Sunday Morning at 9:00 am or 10:30 am on the 5th Floor

We seek to help our preteens develop into authentic disciples. Each Sunday morning we focus on this goal by helping preteens understand God and His word on a deeper level. Through the use of activities and games and a variety of other teaching activities, we want our preteens to know who God is and what He has done. 

Each grade has a unique focus on Sunday morning:

  • 5th Grade – Following the Faithful
  • 6th Grade – Walking with God
