CREW (4th & 5th grade) At this PHASE in your child’s life, we know that friendships matter, and we have created a place to nurture those budding relationships. They experience game time, worship, an age relevant message, and small group breakouts led by consistent, caring leaders.


Crew exists to help 4th & 5th graders experience three things: wonder for who God is, discovery of who He created them to be, and passion for loving others. We want every 4th and 5th grader to begin taking ownership of their own faith through these three basic truths:

• I will love God because He will never stop loving me.
• I will follow Jesus because He knows me better than I know myself.
• I will live out God’s story so others can know who Jesus is.


We know that parents are the primary influence in the life of their child, that’s why we want to come alongside and equip parents to support their child’s faith. At the beginning of every series, parents will receive a Parent Cue which contains conversation starters that align with the current series.

We also have a texting service set up to give parents a head start on what is coming up Sunday in CREW. It is our goal that parents have the opportunity to talk with their child about the bible story before they ever hear it in CREW. So we text you the weekly bible story and lesson summary directly to your phone! To sign up for this service text 81010 to code @56crew!

To check your child into Crew, you will find a computerized check-in system in the Children’s auditorium which quickly prints check-in & check-out slips for your child. Photo identification and fingerprint recognition provide added security in order to prioritize and ensure the safety of your child. If you are a guest, please check in at the clearly labeled guest check-in and we will get you taken care of. We will also have a special family gift waiting for you!
