What to expect on Sundays...
As a junior high student, we are excited that you are considering attending our Junior High Ministry. On Sunday morning, we have a Journey Class (Sunday School Class) during our 11:00 service. This class meets in the Junior High Room #5 near the coffee house, Restoration Cafe.
Our classes are very practical and biblical. The class includes students from 7th to 8th grade. We have several middle schools represented from our area (Dekalb, Garrett, Leo, Eastside, Lakewood Park, Homeschoolers, and several others). The purpose of this class is to help students meet other students and discover Gods truth for their lives.
We encourage students to attend at least one of the Worship Services with their parents. We believe it is vital for students to feel a part of the larger church family, not just an attender of the Junior High Ministry. We know that it can be intimidating walking into a place where you may not know anyone, so our goal is that each student will feel welcomed and get connected.
What to Expect on Wednesday Nights...
On Wednesday nights our Student Ministry focuses on worship and small groups (H.O.T Groups). The Jr. High Ministry provides an opportunity for students to grow in their faith, while providing time for hanging out with friends. We meet from 6:15 – 8:15 p.m. The youth are split up into girls and guys groups of 6-8 students, and are led by a caring adult leader. It is a great time to discuss the topic of the night, and reflect on it from Gods perspective. Our hope is that students will build good relationships within the group, receive good spiritual mentoring, and draw closer to Jesus. Come and check us out on Wednesdays! It's also a great time to bring a friend.
