Large Group: Worship & Bible Teaching

Sundays, 10:40am | Middle School Room (near Door D) 

Sunday is our entry point into students’ lives from all over the community, and is where essential relationships with other students and our adult leaders are built and cultivated. At the core of our large-group atmosphere is a desire to reach students with the gospel message. Through student-focused worship, teaching, and other activities, we hope that every student comes to believe in Jesus and feel that they belong here regardless of their background.

Small Groups: Discipleship & Community

Wednesdays, 6:30-8:00pm | Middle School Room (near Door D)
Sundays, 6:30-8:00pm | Off-campus in leaders’ homes

Our small groups are where we create a safe place for students to further belong to community, as well as seize opportunities to become more committed followers of Jesus. Students are separated into age- and gender-specific groups where they are led by trained adult leaders to discuss life, school, family, friends, and how we see Jesus in the midst of it all. This is discipleship at a basic level, through which leaders develop deeper relationships with students, moving to discipleship and continued influence outside of the church walls.

Middle school small groups run from September through November, break for the holidays, and then resume in January until the end of April. Students must sign-up in advance to participate. Small group registration is open in late August and again in early January. We ask our middle school students to commit to a 90% attendance rate prior to signing up for a small group.

Small group registration is currently closed. Re-enrollment for the Spring 2019 semester will begin in mid-December!

Trips, Conferences, & Retreats: Intentionality & Growth

Our trips and retreats are put in place to further push students to take steps toward Jesus in all areas of their lives. We want to give middle school students the opportunity to get outside of their typical routine and make time and space to stop and listen to what God is saying to them, and how he wants to use them to build the kingdom. Whether it’s a time to refocus their own relationship with Jesus, their relationship with peers and leaders, or with the community around them, we want students to walk away from Middle School ready to impact their friends and communities for Christ in High School, College, and beyond.
