The 527 Tribe
5th – 7th Graders
Affirming each child’s personal faith and life journey as they navigate the often tumultuous, constantly changing pre-teen years is what matters most at this stage. We know Tribers are unique and energetic individuals who experience an overwhelming amount of input from their feelings, emotions, and thoughts, so we tap into their creativity, smarts, and tribal nature as a means for learning and expressing themselves. Hannah Rollins, Family Ministry Associate to The 527 Tribe, and her volunteers provide thoughtful programming specifically designed to build a strong foundation and safe environment for kids to thrive.
We strive to instill these basic truths:
- All of God’s Creation is good.
- Jesus alone has the power to save.
- The Church is global; the church is local.
- The Bible is always truthful and trustworthy and has some hard and complex stories.
During Sunday School, Tribers are learning to summarize the biblical narrative and apply context when reading so they can more fully understand what God is expressing.
