Who Are We?

Life 56 (fifty-six) is the preteen ministry for 5th-6th graders at First Baptist Church O’Fallon.

At Life 56 it is our desire to intentionally create an environment that ministers to 5th and 6th grade students in their transitional years from childhood to adolescence.  We believe preteen students are able to develop a passion for Christ in order to grow as a spiritual leader.

About Life 56

Life 56 is a preteen ministry where the I’m-not-a-kid-but-I’m-not-a-teen can belong. Life 56  means preteen students don’t have to sing songs with hand motions like children, nor do they have to talk about subjects for a teenagers.  At Life 56 students will be able to have relevant and relational conversations about things going on in their world.
