Club 56

5th & 6th Grade Ministry

Club 56 invites you to be a part of our mission—inviting, equipping, and sending. We offer a variety of events that focus on discipleship, fellowship, evangelism, worship, and areas to sever the church and community. Throughout the year we will also be learning about the catechism as PART of our Confirmation training (you can learn more about this on the “Confirmation” page).

Frequently Asked Questions

We meet Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 PM at Cross Lutheran’s food court.

Yes! Friends are always welcome. Cross Lutheran’s youth ministries are open to students of all schools. Many events are designed so that friends would feel very comfortable. Just make sure your friend is in the same age bracket as you are.

Yes! We are always looking for parents to do behind-the-scenes work, be hands-on leaders, or even provide snacks.

We have communion training with a pastor every year in January that will equip your kids to take communion.  We believe communion is separate from confirmation.

At Cross, we do not confirm groups at the end of May.  We believe that many are not ready.  Therefore, we leave that decision up to the family.  When your child is ready to be confirmed and celebrate their faith in Christ, they may set up an appointment with one of the pastors and begin heading in that direction.

For more information, please see our Confirmation page.

We want to help all parents become active in the faith development of their children. We need parents to fit into different roles in this process. As a parent, once you register your child, you are also committing yourself to this process.

No, but at first arrival we need you (parents) to register your kids and fill out a Cross Youth Ministry health form that will be on file with us to help keep your kids safe.  It is also helpful to know who will be there, week-to- week, to provide snacks and the like.  If it is a friend coming, all we ask is that the parent provides information for the health form—whether on line, over the phone or in person.
