Our middle school ministry is for all students in 6th-8th grade. This group is growing fast! Both high school and middle school students meet on Sunday mornings for Sunday School @9:45am and Sunday nights @6pm for small groups. Middle School will meet in the youth room upstairs for Sunday nights. On Wednesday nights, which is our largest student gathering, our middle school worship service begins @6pm and is over @730pm. In Sunday school our students are going on a 3 year in-depth journey through the entire Bible, Sunday nights our guys and girls are separated in small groups for discipleship training, and on Wednesday nights our middle schoolers are all together for an age appropriate, interactive worship service that will make them want to come back the next week.
This ministry is very active! Apart from our monthly Wednesday night KnockerBall tournaments, we go on several trips a year, some locally and some further away. We go to christian concerts, the beach, rallies, D-Now’s, summer camp, and more. We feel that these trips are beneficial to the spiritual growth and unity of our group. They allow our students to take a break from the routine of life and focus on Jesus. Everyone needs to refresh and refill occasionally. Not only do these trips have spiritual benefits but they are also a BLAST!!! There is never a dull moment in our middle school ministry.
More importantly than all the fun and trips, is the way our students are discipled. We take advantage of every opportunity we have with our students. We have a short amount of time with these students, so every study is important. We are building a foundation in these student’s lives that is preparing them to live their faith out loud and to be bold for Jesus. These students are the future leaders in our church’s and communities. Now, more than ever, we need strong Christian leaders who will imitate Jesus!
