New to Jr High

Welcome to…
Junior High Student Ministry

Sunday Mornings / 10:45 a.m.-Noon
Graduating 6th graders start attending Sunday morning student ministry on June 25th!
On Sunday mornings, students gather in the student café between services (10:15-10:45 a.m.) to connect, play games and buy snacks. Around 10:45 a.m., we move into Room 226 for a combined opening and then Junior High students go to room A212 for Bible teaching.


Sunday Nights | 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Our Sunday night Junior High program rotates through large group gatherings, LifeGroup nights and leader meetings every fifth week (no student program that night.)
Large Group Gathering > The night starts with open gym & café where students and leaders can connect. Then the rest of the night features group games, worship, teaching, and discussion.
LifeGroup Nights > Leaders plan these nights at various locations, including students’ homes, the church and off-site venues (like SkyZone, service projects, etc.)


LifeGroups
Our Sunday night Junior High program revolves around our LifeGroups because they play a vital role in helping students experience belonging and discipleship with consistent leaders each week. LifeGroups generally include 10-15 students and 2-3 leaders. Starting in September, all the incoming 7th-grade guys will meet as one LifeGroup and all the 7th-grade girls will meet as one LifeGroup. Then, based on group size and leader team input, we may divide them into smaller groups as the school year progresses. To join a LifeGroup, fill out this form.
