DISCIPLING OUR MIDDLE SCHOOLERS
The middle school years are pivotal. Throughout this time, just below the surface lie the big questions: Who am I, and who do I want to be? What really matters? Is there more to Christ than the story book Jesus? What does faith in Christ have to do with my real life, anyway? Through our Middle School Ministry, we want to help our students know, trust, and delight in Christ. Jesus isn’t only the theoretical answer to the big life questions. He’s a real Savior for real sinners and sufferers, worthy of our deepest trust and our highest joy.
God's Word is food for our souls (Matthew 4:4), the light by which we see (Psalm 119:105), a sword that pierces our hearts (Hebrews 4:12). It is our very life (Deuteronomy 32:47). That's why we study the Bible. During the school year, we gather to eat dinner and study together on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 pm. Students who have siblings in high school can come at 6 pm and hang out with Joel in the lobby.
At youth group we find community, growth in Christ, and fun are usually the same thing! We enjoy crazy games, exciting worship, engaging Bible talks, and relevant small groups. All 6th-8th graders are welcome anytime. We meet on Sunday evenings from 6:00–8:00 pm during the school year.
Sunday morning worship is the beating heart of the Christian life. That's why our students join in our corporate worship.
While discipleship classes are in session, middle schoolers are invited to come to the middle school room between the first and second services for a time of teaching and fellowship.
