Middle School

Middle School Ministry

Middle School can be a confusing time in life. During these years students are searching for identity and it is our goal to help them grow their identity in Christ. We believe that through age-appropriate speakers, heartfelt life group discussions, engaging worship, and High-energy games—students explore their relationship with Jesus and how they can build their identity in Him. We want every student to:

  • Know that Jesus will never stop loving them.
  • Realize the church is a safe place to go with their questions.
  • Feel that we were made to live in community with other believers.
  • Live out God’s story so others can know who Jesus is.

Middle School Respond meets on Sunday mornings at 11:00am at both the Shiloh and O'Fallon Campuses. When God speaks, we respond. MS Respond is a next level opportunity for our students to dig into challenging issues of faith. Respond classes will provide opportunities to grow at different levels and wrestle their personal faith with their peers.


Middle School Reach is a venue where students can feel excited about connecting to Jesus. Students are given opportunities to be intentional about using their gifts to tell their friends about how Jesus has changed their lives. MS Reach helps students to reach their friends as they reach for Jesus.

During the School Year:
MS Reach
meets on Tuesdays at 6:15 pm at the O'Fallon Campus and on Wednesdays at 6:15 at the Shiloh Campus.


Middle School Relate helps students do life together. When we talk about MS Relate we are speaking of an inviting community. In Relate Groups, students will be connected with peers of their age and gender. They will explore the truths of God, share in personal victories, and have a ton of fun talking about life.
