Middle School Ministry

Middle school is a formative time as a student. You're really beginning to ask questions of identity as you seek to find your place at school, with friends, and in your family. Our team believes middle school is a crucial time to begin following Jesus faithfully and learning how to commit to Him in culture. You can find more information on how we serve middle schoolers below, but if you'd like to connect with us, contact Michael Miller, our Associate Minister to Middle School!

Sunday School

Middle School students meet in the Student Building Worship Room at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. for Sunday School.

For more information on Sunday School, contact Mindy Barton, Student Ministry Assistant.


Sunday School is a great way to make the big of our worship gatherings small, but DGroups are how we really develop intentional relationships and live life one-on-one. You'll link up with a small group of peers of your same grade and gender and meet weekly with a leader. You may study a book of Scripture, have a topical discussion, or do a reading plan.

If you would like more information on DGroups, please contact Kelly McCollum!

Wednesday Nights

Wednesday night gatherings at Shades are a great midweek time to hang out with your friends, but it's also a way to have your eyes fixed toward Jesus no matter what your week is like. 

Join us in the Student Building every Wednesday from 6-7:30 PM!  We will have $5 pizza starting at 5:30PM. Come early to hangout, play Xbox One, Pop-Shot Basketball, Air Hockey and more! See our Fall Schedule for what's coming this fall!
