We combine worship and teaching on the weekends with fun and enriching fellowship during the week to help mold young teens into strong faith-filled followers of Jesus.
Middle School Quest
10am | 11:30am
Quest is a time to get together, worship with peers, and hear the Word. Student-led worship bands lead us in worship, prayer, and music as a large group each service. Then we break into Sunday school classes lead by an adult leader. (At 10am, the entire service is for middle school students only. At 11:30am, we worship together with high school students, then break off into our middle school classes after singing.)
Middle School Growth Groups

The Fall 2019 dates are September 22, October 6, October 20, November 3, November 17, December 1 and December 15.
