Middle school is a pivotal intersection of life, as students are still in childhood wonderment but quickly stepping into mature interpretation of how they see the world. This unique phase of life allows for enthusiastic energy and playfulness to meet philosophical and sophisticated faith development.
We will meet consistently on Wednesday nights as part of our big programming session and in small groups, as well as having the opportunity for in depth discussion and Bible study on Sunday mornings.
While the approach to Wednesdays and Sundays will be different, the intended results will be the same as our High School ministry: Educating without assumption, encouraging questions, and seeking understanding together in a community as we all benefit from the richness of different perspectives, experiences, and diverse questions.
Steven Olan, Director of Middle School Ministry

MIDDLE SCHOOL SUNDAYS
9:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m.
In The Corner (1st Floor)
Join us in The Corner for hot chocolate, breakfast treats, games and discussion about Jesus. We are calling our Sunday morning theme “A Year With Jesus,” as we navigate the gospels and explore His earthly ministry. We want to look beyond the pages and understand the heart of who Jesus was to those around Him and how we can learn to love as He loves!
