SURF Preteen

Get to know Aaron Esquibel, our Preteen Resident Director, or for more info on Surf Preteen ministries contact him at or (559) 298-0688.

SURF students in 5th and 6th grade are at a very transitional point in their lives, neither wanting to be treated as kids, nor yet ready to be treated as teens. It is Surf’s desire to minister to preteens by teaching them about Identity (Who God is + Who Am I), Belonging (Who is the Church + Where Do I Fit In), and Mission (Who is Jesus + What is my Mission).

Surf meets in the Surf Shack on both Wednesdays and Sundays:

Wednesday Nights @ 6:30pm-8:00pm.

Wednesday night youth group including crazy games, authentic worship, strong Biblical teaching and gender/grade specific Life Groups.

Sunday Mornings @ 9:00am and 10:30am.

  • At 9:00, Bill and Jan Choate take 5th/6th graders through a two year walk through the Bible. Their creative and fun way of teaching the Bible gives students a great foundation of seeing the whole picture of God’s word.
  • At 10:30, Dan Bartel and his team take an apologetics approach for preteens, and teach them how to solidify a faith of their own and how to defend the many questions that they will come across in this world. Topics include science, world religions, preparing for adolescence, how to study the Bible, etc.
Incredibles: The VBX

VBX is an extreme version of our summer Vacation Bible Adventure — just for 5th and 6th graders! In addition to the morning programs at NewCov, VBX includes afternoon experiences just for preteens, like Boomers, bowling, or Skywalk. VBX is an awesome place for 5th and 6th graders just beginning to explore a relationship with Jesus Christ, as well as those who have grown up in the church and are seeking to strengthen their personal relationship with God.

2018 Dates: June 11th-15th

Summer Camp

Surf goes to Hume Lake’s Wagon Train for summer camp. Wagon Train is a fun, rustic summer camp for students in 5th and 6th grade. This Old West experience includes sleeping in a real covered wagon, learning Archery and BB guns, riding canoes and kayaks around the pond and exploring Fort Logan (our three story island fort). You’ll also sit around a campfire singing worship songs, memorize scripture, watch amazing skits about the Bible performed by the Wagon Train staff and hear each morning and evening the Good News of Jesus and his love for us.

2018 Dates: July 8-14
