6th – 8th Graders

Be you. Belong. Be Loved. Believe.

While middle schoolers might be notorious for being a bit quirky, we believe that they are simply AWESOME! They are at a very key time in their development where they can begin to go a bit deeper and make faith decisions of their own. We count it a privilege to walk alongside them during these years of questions and change.
We’ve got an incredible team of leaders who genuinely love middle schoolers and deeply love Jesus. We place a high emphasis on relationships built through weekly gatherings, worship, bible study, fun activities, small groups, and special events. We desire to create an atmosphere where students can belong, be themselves, and encounter the transforming love of Jesus.

Oh… And we love to play dodgeball.
