We welcome all middle school students to be part of our weekly worship and small groups to explore who Jesus Christ is to them. Our goal is to help our 6th-8th graders lead others into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

The Ridge

Sundays @ 5 - 7:30 pm

Sunday evening is open to all youth in middle school and high school. Join us every Sunday evening for dinner and small groups in the Family Life Center starting at 5 pm. Worship will be held in the Ministry Center from 5:45 to 6:15 pm.

The youth will then move back to the FLC and break into small groups. This is a chance for students to get to know each other in a comfortable environment as we discover a deeper relationship with Jesus together.

Life Groups

Wednesdays @ 6 pm

Middle School youth have the opportunity to participate in their own version of Life Groups in the Family Life Center on Wednesday nights. They will learn how to look for God in their daily experiences and in each other.

Sundays @ 10:45 am

Confirmation is specifically created for 6th graders (and 7/8th graders who have not participated). They attend weekly classes to prepare them for the choice of whether to confirm their baptism and turn their life over to Christ.

Safety Information

Background Checks

There is nothing more important to us than protecting your sweet kids and creating a safe space for spiritual growth. We require that all adults involved in Children or Youth Ministries, including staff, childcare workers, and volunteers, submit themselves for a background check as a safety precaution.


MinistrySafe is a safety training program that all volunteers (including teenagers), staff, and childcare workers are required to complete and renew every 2 years. MinistrySafe was created to help ministries meet legal standards of care and reduce the risk of sexual abuse using tools and technology tailored to fit the needs of churches, camps and ministry programs.


We are always looking for servants to help our youth grow. It is so important for our pre-teens and teens to know that they are radically loved by the church. Don't worry about your abilities or experience. Join our team of servants to help provide a fun, safe and spiritual environment for our students to grow in relationship with Jesus Christ. Fill out the form to tell us where you'd like to serve.
