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.

Led by Fifty6 Pastor Shafer Hunt, programming usually takes place at the 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 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

iChoose is our epic fifth and sixth grade weekend retreat from January 29-31, 2021! This trip is action-packed with big group games, s'mores, crazy camp activities, great worship, powerful messages, and small group sessions all designed to encourage our students to know the love of Jesus and grow in relationship with Him. We will leave from WoodsEdge and ride in charter buses to Pineywoods Camp where we will stay overnight for two nights. Students may bring their same age friends!

Best Christmas Ever is a series designed to help students recognize that the best things about Christmas aren’t the things we typically tend to remember first during the season. They’re the things God did for us thousands of years ago. Though encouraging students to embrace abstract concepts like the fact that God is with them and wants to know them may be difficult for some of our students to grasp, it’s important to help them recognize these key elements of what Christmas is all about. These are things they can celebrate and understand as they grow in maturity and relationship with God. 

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.

AMP'D
