Our desire to make fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ by encouraging 6th-12th students in their faith step by step. We want students to OWN their faith by providing leadership opportunities, a safe place to fail, biblical knowledge, and relational discipleship.

Middle School

6th – 8th grade

Our Middle School Students meet at the Coffee Shop every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. before going into the Auditorium together for worship and then split up into Community Groups by grade and gender that meet for the remainder of the service.  Also on Sunday Mornings, our students all sit together in the Student Section (first rows of the middle section) of the Auditorium during the 11 a.m. service. Wednesday nights we have The Gathering from 7:00-8:45 p.m. in The Venue. This is a time of corporate worship, teaching, and community building.

sent together

We all want to be part of something significant. We want to make a difference! We dream of making an impact and leaving the world better than we found it. Some people try to change the world all alone, but the people who’ve made the biggest and most positive differences in the world know you can’t do anything truly significant on your own. Jesus told us this on his last day on earth. He gave his followers a mission that would change the world — but he made it clear we couldn’t do it alone. He was sending us on a mission together. In this four-week series from the New Testament, we’ll learn from Jesus and some of his earliest followers that Jesus sends us on a mission — a mission that can bring healing, that can only be accomplished together, and that we can boldly choose to be a part of.

FOCUS

It's not easy to stay focused. Especially these days, when we're connected to a never-ending stream of new notifications, ads, messages, videos, posts, and entertainment, it makes sense if we feel a little distracted sometimes. Maybe you've struggled recently to stay focused on your homework, or on the story your friend was telling you, or on the movie you were watching - but have you ever struggled to stay focused when you were spending time with God? In this four-week series, we're going to get honest about how difficult it can be to stay focused when we're trying to pray, read the Bible, or grow in our faith. Each week, we'll explore passages from Psalms and the Gospels as we challenge ourselves to focus on practicing four spiritual disciplines that can help us grow. Together, we'll try focusing on what God has said, on giving something up, on talking to God, and on rest.
