Middle School (6th-8th)


Middle School Large Group: Middle school students gather every Sunday morning from 9:45-10:45am in the Xplex. Our Large Group offers students a place to interact with other students, be involved in games, worship through music, and to learn life applicable teachings from God’s Word. All students 6th-8th grade are welcome!


Middle School Life Groups: These are small groups of students that meet in the Xplex during our Large Group time on Sunday morning. They allow students the opportunity to discuss and work through what was just taught, build meaningful relationships, and to do life together. There is no need to sign up! We divide students by grade and gender during our large group time, and they meet at tables in the Xplex with the same leaders every week.

High School Life Groups: These are small groups of students that typically meet in homes with the purpose of bringing people together. They allow students the opportunity to study the Bible, build meaningful relationships, and to do life together.
