Trails 56


Trails 56 is a ministry for 5th and 6th grade students designed to equip them with gospel-centered community, teaching, and leaders during their transitional “preteen” years. Our desire is for our students to discover who Jesus is, and what it means to live as followers of Him.

Trails 56 meets on Sunday nights from 5:00-6:30pm at The Trails Church Campus. Bring your notebook, Bible, and pencil or pen.

For more information, please contact Kelly and Julie Griese at julie@thetrails.org.


Parents, please sign this waiver in order for your children to participate in our meetings and events.
