Middle School


And he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.
— 2 Corinthians 5:15

The middle school key verse invites students into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, turning their focus off themselves and onto living for Him.

LIFE Group

First Wednesday of the month, 7-9 p.m.
LIFE Groups typically meet in the home of screened church families. Groups are led by dedicated adult volunteers who walk students through a review of lesson material completed at home during the month. Students are asked to complete a Commitment Form to participate and be assigned to a group.
Commitment Form


Sundays, 10:30 a.m., Douglas Room
Students meet around discussion tables by gender and grade. Discussions are led by adult volunteers based on Bible teaching presented to the large group by the Student Ministries Pastor or Pastoral Intern. On the first Sunday of each month, the discussion is sermon-based so students are encouraged to worship together with their family during the first service; then, come to Connections ready to discuss the sermon.
