5th and 6th Graders

We have a dynamic program for all 5th and 6th graders that is dedicated to helping kids connect with each other and their God in fun, new ways!

First time visitors need to complete this Family Ministry Registration Form.  It can be completed ahead of time and brought with you on your first visit  or open the registration form in your browser (default on many computers), fill in the boxes, go to print, change the printer to save as a .PDF and change the file name with your family name at the front (i.e. Smith-Family Ministry Registration Form.pdf), and email a copy to kidsinfo@sgatechurch.org.

5th & 6th Graders

On Sunday mornings we recognize our 5th and 6th graders don’t just want the usual.  We’ve developed an awesome morning where these kids get to learn how to lead.  Students get a chance to learn how to speak in front of a large group, lead worship with children, run a sound and light board, run our Prize Center and so much more!  What we love even more is while they’re learning how to lead, they’re also right in the middle of each and every lesson we teach in SG Kids 5|6!  They truly get it all!

In the Summer months, 5th and 6th graders continue to come on Sunday mornings only at 10a! Join us for this summer’s theme: “Teach Kids the Beati-Dudes!”

SG Kids 5|6 now has two services at 10 and 11:30a!

The fall theme, “On the farm”, teaches us all about the fruits of the spirit, and kids are welcome to attend one or both service! This allows parents/guardians to attend both church service and a bible study!

Throughout the whole year, 5th and 6th graders have a great opportunity every Wednesday night to hang out with their friends, make some new friends, play some truly wild games, learn about the truths found in God’s word and meet in small groups.  While school is in session, we meet from 7-8:30p and when school is out for the summer, we switch to 6:30-8:30p.

The Fall session will start on September 13, 2017 (7-8:30p) with some activities to get to know each other, and Sept. 20, we start our first series “Life with Tyler”.



Each year in the fall, we take an amazing trip to SpringHill Camp in Evart, MI for an awesome retreat just for 5th and 6th graders! They have everything at this camp including a huge zipline that runs right over the water! Everything is first class for this camp and we always learn so much through great speakers, powerful bands, and lots of fun activities. 

We are going to SpringHill Preteen Camp: November 10-12, 2017! Cost is $189 per student, and includes bus ride there and back, lodging, all meals (excluding dinner on Friday), and all activities for the weekend (including zip-lining!). Registration forms and $50 deposit are due by October 25. Partial and full scholarships are available, if needed. Contact kidsinfo@sgatechurch.org for more information.

Winter Event

Each winter we have an amazing time doing something fun, locally.  Some years we spend an evening at LifeTime Fitness, swimming and rock climbing, other years we’ve headed to Dave & Buster’s or Joe Dumars’ Fieldhouse.  No matter where we go, we always have yummy food, great fellowship and friendly competition.  Look for a new event to take place in February 2018!  Contact kidsinfo@sgatechurch for more information.

SpringHill Day Camp

SpringHill Day Camp comes to Shepherd’s Gate for 1 week every summer!!  Camp is open to students completing 5th grade as well!  So, come, join the fun! Open registration starts Feb. 14, 2018.
