Middle School

“I have called you by name, you are mine.”

Isaiah 43:1

Many adults claim that middle school was their favorite time at church. Judging by the laughter heard throughout the building from this group, we can see why that would be true. It’s an exciting time as middle schoolers begin to lean into their own identities. 

It’s also an important time of spiritual formation, which is why we encourage all youth and their families to commit to beginning the confirmation process at the end of their fifth grade year. This process of connecting faith with everyday life continues into the fall of ninth grade. 

Middle schoolers also gather for outings, summer camps, and other fellowship opportunities.
