Middle School Ministries
Our goal in Middle school Ministry is to create a community where all are welcome and included. A Place where students can come grow in their faith, and where students can build, grow, and develop relationships.
We invite YOU to come and join us and grow with us!
Every summer students come together for a week dedicated to service. We assist at various non-profit and community organizations in the Woodbury and metro area including food banks, food shelves, packing medical supplies destined for developing nations, as well as a variety of other service organizations. We end our time together with a trip together to Valley Fair to celebrate our week of service.
DATE: August 12-16, 2019
Can friends come to events? Always! We just ask that a current medical form be on file in the office. If you have questions, just ask Michael!
Are scholarships available? YES! We NEVER want the cost of an event to be a prohibitive factor to students coming to events! If there is a need, please reach out to Michael.
Do you ever need help from parents for events? ALWAYS! There is always a need for more parents to come around and be a part of events! ALL parent’s and adults need to complete a background check prior to the event. If you would like to help out with the life of Middle School Ministry, please contact Michael.
Includes everything but spending money– 6th-8th Graders can come out for a lock-out! We will start our time together with a youth rally and concert, head over to a community center for swimming, playing in the gym and ice skating, head to a theater to watch a movie—there will be 5-6 choices and we will wrap our time up together with some bowling and arcade! We will meet at church at 9:30 and drive together for a night of fun!! Friends are welcome—just register them along with your child. If parents are interested in joining us, please email Michael at firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here to register!

Jesus Calling For Kids This is the book Pastor Liz referenced at REV/Fusion combined worship on January 6th. It’s a wonderful family devotion. It’s short, sweet, easy to understand, and creates space for great dialogue about God, faith, and life. It can be purchased on Amazon or at LifeWay.
We hope these resources will be helpful!
