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.

Planet 56 Music

Planet 56 Music activities begin in August of 2019.    Our Planet 56ers get to experience music and Orff instruments under the direction of Tim Peck and Laurie Gunter.  This group will meet on Sundays.  More information will be available later in the summer.

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

Confirmation for 6th Graders

Confirmation Classes for 6th graders began in January.  Salli and Tim Lehman are teaching this year’s class, along with Jacob Hinckley, Floyd White and Pastor James.  Confirmation will take place on Sunday, April 28 at the 11:00 service.  This will be followed by a lunch for the confirmands and their families.  Weather permitting, we will have lunch at Cherokee Lake, catered by Barberitos.
