middle school

Can you imagine controlled chaos? Neither can we—so we just jump in, embrace the mess, and talk about Jesus as we go. 
Sundays at 9:00 a.m. in the Student Ministries Room
Illuminate is our Sunday morning class for middle school students (grades 6–8). Sunday mornings aren't usually considered to be the highlight of a middle schooler's schedule but we believe we have found the secret sauce that makes class enjoyable and engaging(most of the time).

We focus on teaching truths from God’s Word in a way students can understand and relate to. And though we take Scripture seriously, we try not to take ourselves too seriously so we work to bring God’s truth to our lives in a fun, energetic, and relevant way.
Wednesdays from 6:00–8:00 p.m. in the Student Ministries Room
Edge is our middle school youth group. This group has been—and continues to be—a top highlight of the students' (and adult leaders') week! We LOVE Edge, not because we do anything super entertaining (although we try), but because we love being together. We have found that most middle school students desire to be cared about and belong somewhere they enjoy being, so, we just work hard at those things.

We have tons of crazy fun traditions, games, food, music, and small group connections with a discussion-oriented Bible lesson. If you’re a middle school student, check it out because it’s a blast—but don’t be surprised when you end up growing in faith as well. If you’re a parent of a middle school student, please send your student to Edge because they are going to build a solid, Biblical foundation all while developing friendships with other students.
