Middle School Ministry

Middle School Website

The Middle School years are such a fast-changing and transformative time in the life of your middle schooler, and we want to partner with you to walk alongside them and help them as they grow. We see our Middle School Ministry as a time of beginning to establish Godly habits in the lives of our students. Habits like spending time daily in God’s Word, worshiping God weekly as well as week-long, and learning the importance of being part of a Christian community. Each of our programs are design to help using that effort.

We’ve got a full calendar of activities and programs to make this year one your student will not want to miss.

Sunday Mornings:

9:15am – Sunday School Join us as we go through the Bible chronologically over the course of three years. We’ll walk through the passage as a group and then break up into small groups, called Life Groups, to discuss how it applies to our life.

Wednesday Nights:

6:15pm – Life Groups   In the middle of your crazy week, we have Life Groups that meet to help check in on our students and encourage them in their walk with Christ.  This is a time of discipleship and encouragement and we take the lessons we are learning and apply them to our life.  Life Groups meet each Wednesday night during the school year.

6:45pm – BLAST   BLAST stands for Building Lives Around Scriptural Truth.  It’s a fun night of worship, games and engaging Bible study.  We finish at 8:00.  BLAST meets each Wednesday night during the school year.
