FISH

Pre-Teen Ministry

Just for "tweens" - the F.I.S.H. group (Fourths/Fifths in Service to Him) meets on the 2nd Wednesday of the month (September - May) from 6:30-7:30 PM for an evening of fun, fellowship and learning.  FISH are also invited to participate in a service projects throughout the year.  Several Methodist churches in the Austin area have FISH groups and occasionally we gather with them for retreats or mission projects. FISH Gatherings and events are open to all fourth and fifth graders. Church membership is not required, and participation is FREE!
