MIDDLE SCHOOL MINISTRY

Thank you for checking out our page!

If you are a middle school student or know one, we hope that our ministry will feel like home. Our staff (leaders) welcome you and invite you or any middle school student to our group. Please scroll down to look at our ministry times below. We provide a mid-week program and Sunday morning gathering as well as an annual summer camp experience, 


Our Middle School Ministry focuses on the opportunity for students to know and grow into their relationship with Jesus. We do this through what we call "legendary moments" and "legacy relationships". We hope to create memorable moments or "legends" that students will hold on to the rest of their lives whether it be the moment they came to know Jesus, when they surrendered their hearts in worship,  were convicted by a Biblical truth during our teaching time, or when they lost an epic food fight. Our leaders' goal is to leave a "legacy" in the student's life. Leaders pour into the lives of students inside and outside of group times. They form relationships with students that lead students closer to God and deeper into what His word says as they, too, grow deeper with the Lord. We often don't remember the words, but we remember the moments and the people, and that's what our ministry hopes to capitalize on and maybe have a little fun along the way.


SUNDAY MORNING

10:45 AM - 12:00 PM

Our Sunday Morning Gathering is designed to support the spiritual growth of Middle School students. We provide a fun, chill environment with a mini-coffee shop, table games, and video games. Our gathering consists of a game, passionate worship, and Bible-centered teaching. 


FRIDAY NIGHTS

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM


The Middle School Ministry also meets on Friday nights from 7-9 PM in the Activity Center. We have exciting games and activities, authentic worship, and family (small) groups that challenge students to love Jesus more and live it out every day.

SUMMER CAMP

Early August

Every August, the Middle School Ministry retreats to an amazing summer camp experience. For four days, students will get away and experience God in new ways in beautiful locations. Nightly worship and messages round out long fun days with friends and leaders. Camp memories are always life long memories!
