We love middle schoolers and we hope that you’ll check out one of our ministries designed just for you! 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students are invited to join us as we study the Bible, talk about life, serve others, and get connected through games and small group time.
Parents of Middle Schoolers
We want to partner with you! Here are a few great ways to stay connected.
Email Us: ( / / ) any important info about your young person that will help us care for him/her! (Things we like to know include: any special needs, life changes/concerns, exciting stuff, and the hard stuff.)
Parent Blog: There are book reviews, announcements, and family faith ideas.
Text Updates: If you'd like to receive follow up questions via text after weekly ministries, join the text lists by texting 81010.

Small Group Leaders: Get to know your young person's small group leader, invite them to games/plays/competitions. Invite them out for coffee/dinner. They are a cheerleader for you as well as your young person!
