About GT Preteens

Students in grades 4-6 will have fun with friends, play games, and learn truth to own and live out their faith. We encourage them to connect with friends through interactive small groups, worship, and engaging communicators. Everything we offer is designed to help preteens begin to take ownership of their 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.

Our interactive gender-based small group time is great way for our preteens to meet other people their age and form meaningful relationships with their peers and Small Group Leaders!

GT Kids Mask Policy

In an effort to continue providing ministry to children on Sunday mornings without disruption, we are updating our masking protocols for GT Kids and GT Preteens. Beginning Sunday, August 29th, masks will be required for children in grades K-6 while they are in their ministry environments.

We will continue to monitor the COVID counts in Berks, as well as updates to vaccine eligibility, and will update this policy when and if possible. Please note that masking for children in grades K-6 is only required when in their ministry environment. It is optional, not required, in any other area of the building.

At Home

The preteen years are when students begin to engage with their faith and develop their passions. As your child is becoming more independent, our goal is to help you encourage them to love God and love others through weekly videos, meaningful activities and interactions while you do church at home.

Baptism Bash

Every student can have a personal relationship with Jesus, and in GT Preteen Ministry, we encourage each student to make a decision to follow Him. Baptism Bash is a special service where we celebrate the decision your student has made to follow Jesus!
