Middle School youth are some of the coolest people on the planet but they are also going through a time where they will face changes in almost every area of life. Because of this, it’s our priority to utilize youth sponsors that are willing to pour into them and invest in their success. We are all about having fun in a relaxed environment but we are also all about building relationships, talking about Jesus and building a strong foundation of faith. We want to encourage all of our youth to be the church by attending activities regularly and inviting friends too. From Sunday Morning Life Class, lock-ins, service projects, Wednesday Night activities, Youth SNL, and Small Groups to pick-up basketball games, concerts and special events we are thriving and have something for everyone! Please feel free to email our Student Minister, Eli Mathers with questions.
Regularly Scheduled Activities for Middle School Youth
Meets Sundays at 10:00 am in Building B

Description: SNL is a student worship service happening on the first Sunday of every month. We will have worship, teaching, games, etc. that will lead us into the small groups the rest of the month. On top of that, students will get to break into appropriate (age, gender and grade) groups led by adult leaders. We tackle questions that relate to our students’ world and also have opportunities for them to relate with one another. SNL is a great opportunity to challenge your students to bring their friends! All other Sunday nights of the month we’ll meet for small groups.
