Tween Time

What time?

Tween Worship and Small Group : 11:00 am Sundays

What is a Tween? A Tween is the group of kids between the ages of 9 to 12. Usually 4th and 5th Graders, but we include our 3rd Graders too.

This age group is caught between wanting to be a kid and longing to be a teenager. They still play with some toys, but are confronted with many of lives very mature problems and conflicts. Many are incredibility self-motivated and have a strong desire to be a part of something greater.

At Navarre United Methodist Church we are offering a special component to our ministry that is just for our Tweens.

On the first Sunday of each month, our families stay together for the whole worship service for the message and communion. It is our hope that this will help families to have a shared faith conversation that will carry over into their home lives.

On 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th Sundays, families begin their worship time together in our service, and children, After our welcome and announcements, grades kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to exit the sanctuary to have a Kids Style Worship and Small group time. All children are always welcome to remain with their families in the sanctuary for the entire service as well.

On these Sunday's at the 9:30am service these children have a large group Kindergarten through Fifth Grade children’s worship service with a small group time.

On these Sunday’s at the 11:00am service we divide our worship/small group time into two groups: Kindergarten – Second Grade and Tweens: Third through 5th Graders. 

These Tweens have curriculum designed especially for their age group, and have teachers who are excited and well prepared to share this time of worship and study with them.

Tell your tweens, bring their friends. This is their time!
