Planet 56 (5th & 6th Grade)

At TFUMC we feel that our 5th and 6th grade students are at a point in life where they are too old for children’s ministry, but are still too young to be included in youth ministries. We address this difficulty by giving them their own ministry! We will use this page to keep parents in the loop of everything going on in Planet 56.


SAVE THE DATE, ALL YOU PLANET 56ERS!  

We will go Christmas caroling on Sunday, December 16!  Dress for the weather, meet at the church at 5:00pm and we will go out to dinner when we’re finished singing.  Friends are always welcome!  Please call the church office and let us know how many are coming.  Please bring $5 to help pay for dinner–the church will cover the rest.  See you soon!



Planet 56 Music

Planet 56 Music activities begin in August. Our Planet 56ers get to experience music and Orff instruments under the direction of Heidi Pelkey and Laurie Gunter.  This group meets in Wednesdays at 5:00pm.

These are Orff Instruments, in case you were wondering…………
