What is ARROWS 56?

ARROWS 56 is our new Tween Ministry for 5th & 6th graders (56...get it?  See below for what "Arrows" means)  Led by our new ministry director Robyn Moore, the tween ministry will actively engage your kids to get them up out of the children's world and ready for Confirmation then the big Kingdom Student Ministries realms.  Big changes!  ...And big changes require a lot of care, communication and support between parents and kids, between kids and kids,  and between the church the parents and the kids.  It's all one big community getting ready for what's next!

  • When?  Arrows 56 meets each Sunday at 9:45 in Wesley Annex.  Each first Sunday of the month we all worship together at the 9:45 Prayer & Praise service in the sanctuary.
  • Target Group: 5th and 6th graders of Friendswood United Methodist Church
  • Mission: Preteen Ministry bridges children’s ministry and youth ministry. We will be intentional in helping our tweens grow in their understanding of their faith and relationship with Christ and each other. They will use their gifts and talents to share the love of Christ with others.
  • Vision: Provide preteens a special place of their own where they can develop and grow in their unique relationships with Christ and with each other.

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. (1 Timothy 4:12)

Arrow definition: A mark or sign used to show direction or position; a pointe
The Lord is our archer and we are the arrows. 
Arrows, don’t miss your target! Abide in Christ and His word will abide in you.

Arrow description:
The shaft represents our identity.  We are polished and set on a straight path by the word of God. Isaiah 49:1-4; Psalm 127:3-4
The feathers represent our character. We want to be dependable, respectful and righteous to be guided by God. 1 Peter 2:11-17 
The nock represents our relationships. We need strong connections with God and others to help keep us in place. 1 Samuel 20:18-23
The point represents our mission. God sharpens our point to give us vision to impact others through our mission.   Jeremiah 51:11

And just because...we meet on the 1st Sunday of the month at 9:35 in the foyer of the church to attend the Contemporary 9:45 am service together too!
