Fifty6 is a unique ministry at WoodsEdge for 5th and 6th graders where they are challenged to make their faith their own and grow in who they are in Christ. With engaging worship, games, and small groups, Fifty6 is a fun environment where kids are able to develop friendships and deepen their relationship with the Lord.

Programming takes place at the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services, as well as on Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. during the prayer service. Fifty6 is now meeting in person, but all Fifty6 programming is also available online here

 Current Series  


The Big Questions is a five-week series designed to help your fifth and sixth grader answer their big questions about faith, identity, belonging, and purpose in Jesus. While your student may not be outwardly asking questions about who they are, where they fit in, or what they’re made for in this world, they’re most definitely considering these things internally in this phase. This series will give them the foundation to build their sense of identity, purpose, and belonging as they grow and mature in faith.

Shafer Hunt serves as the pastor for Fifty6 and his wife, Hannah, is the admin. They have been part of Fifty6 for about five years and love working with this age group! They share a passion for missions, fun, camp, and coffee, and they love to see all of those incorporated into ministry. Shafer and Hannah have two little girls that you may see from time to time- four-year-old Evie and baby Finley.

Javi Rais serves as the associate pastor for Fifty6, he loves spending time with his wife, Savannah, and their daughter, Brixton. Their favorite things to do together as a family is going out on walks with their dog Evie. Javi has been a part of WoodsEdge Community church since 2006. Both are dedicated to lead the kids of Fifty6 in a biblical world view while sharing the refreshing truth of the gospel and empowering them to do the same. Javi and Savannah are passionate about raising up the next generation of disciples.
