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.
