Partnering With Parents
It's during the middle school years that the gap between parents and students appears to widen. This shift is natural because the students are growing in their independence. But we know that during this phase, parents are still the most influential people in a middle schooler's life. So we want to partner with you to help you succeed during this crucial phase.
MIDDLE SCHOOL EVENTS
MIDDLE SCHOOL MANIA - July
Middle School Mania is our big summer event for middle schoolers. We will have games, prizes, pizza, and a giant nerf war!

THE YOUTH PARTY is an event for both middle schoolers and high schoolers that kicks off our school year the right way! There is a ton of fun, food, and a lot of great memories with friends.

THE YOUTH RETREAT - Mar.
THE YOUTH RETREAT is the best weekend of the year. We take over 200 middle schoolers, high schoolers, and adult volunteers to Timber Wolf Lake Camp in Lake City, Mi. for a weekend of fun, worship, teaching, growing in faith, and making great memories with friends.

We invite middle school students to follow Jesus passionately. One of the first steps we challenge students to make after they make a decision for Jesus is to get baptized. This year, we have a baptism class for students and parents on March 3 after Youth. If your student is interested in getting baptized, here is the process:
1. Watch this teaching from Pastor Sam on Baptism:
