Wednesday Phase 45 Tracks

Tracks are programs designed to teach and enrich the lives of our Preteens!


Technology is one of the amazing gifts God has provided for us to manage our world and proclaim His Good News. In this class, we work in groups to build and program robots, learning how to harness technology for the good of His community. Our motto? Love God, serve others, change the world.

Make it or Bake it!

A fun track where crafting and baking collide!  We will use our artistic skills and make fun craft projects and bake tasty treats each week.


Do you love to act? Learn to declare truths from His Word with confidence as we build speaking and drama skills in a fun atmosphere.  You will also practice and prepare skits that will be performed on Wednesday’s during our large group time.


Like drawing? Like to doodle? Like cartoons? Then this is the track for you. Learn drawing and cartooning from professional cartoonist, John Whitworth.  Bring your sense of humor, a positive attitude, and creativity, and we will have tons of fun!

Community Impact

Do you love to serve others? In this track we will learn how to serve others in our community and also communities around the world through hands on projects. We will also visit other ministries in our church and learn how they impact the community as well as hearing from missionaries who have served around the world

X-treme Skills

Are you prepared?  X-Treme Skills will teach preteen boys and girls what they need to know with hands on activities and survival techniques.  15 weeks of walking through God’s Word to teach them basic survival skills, helping them be prepared for anything they may encounter in everyday life and out in the wild!  Have fun out in God’s creation, while learning how to survive on their own with God


Preteens will have a blast as we lift up our voices to praise Him in worship. Students who are interested will have the opportunity to audition and lead exciting songs on stage with our new Preteen Worship Team.  In the Music Track, preteens will have a fun musical experience that will involve learning the Fundamentals of music while singing, playing instruments, doing movement, and other fun musical activities! In this track, preteens will learn and grow musically while having a blast in the process!
