45 Zone – A ministry for fourth and fifth graders

45 Zone is a ministry for fourth and fifth graders. We participate in fellowship building and service opportunities where we learn to practically apply our faith in everyday activities. We have special events once a month on Sunday afternoons. We also have a few small group sessions planned for the Spring semester for 2019.

All 4th and 5th graders – watch this page for the schedule of activities in 45 Zone. We have a lot of fun things planned!

– January – 

January 27, Created by God, 12 – 6:30 p.m.

Each year Roswell Kids offers a human sexuality workshop for our fifth graders. We will be hosting this on Sunday, Jan. 27. This will be a time for your fifth graders to discuss and learn about God’s wonderful creation of their bodies, the changes they experience during adolescence, and intimacy with God and with fellow humans. It is important that your fifth graders have scientifically accurate and Biblically-based information on these important topics.

Date and time: January 27, 12 – 6 :30 p.m.

What: During this workshop, we will discuss God’s wonderful creation of our bodies, anatomy, puberty changes, relationships, and social media.

Fun breaks: We will have a long inflatable and game break during the middle of the day along with a few other small breaks to help with the seriousness of this topic.

Who will lead? Roswell Kids staff members will teach this curriculum. Adult and teen mentors will help lead small groups and table discussions.

Will boys and girls be split up? They will divided out during our discussion of anatomy and puberty changes.

Cost: $40 – this includes lunch, dinner as a family, take-home participant books, goody bag, and supplies. Scholarships are available if needed. Please contact Lorin Tate, ltate@rumc.com.

Dinner: We ask that parents join us at 6 p.m. for dinner and a devotional as we wrap up our time together with your children.

Created by God Parent Meetings 

There will be two parent information meetings and parents must attend one. Parents who have children attend in the past still need to attend as we have some new information this year. Join us on Sunday, Jan. 13 from 12 – 1:30 p.m. in room 246/248 (childcare and lunch provided) or Wednesday, Jan. 16 from 6 – 7 p.m. in the Trinity Cafe (childcare provided). This is a time for parents to hear what your child will be learning, understand how you can be involved, for you to ask questions, and for you to make a final decision on whether you want your child to attend.
