jr. high ministries
Student ministries exist to create environments and develop relationships where students feel safe, are known by the church community and adopted by and discipled through intergenerational relationships so they can live into their calling as agents of his kingdom. In addition, we partner with parents to train and equip them to help their students discover how to live life as a disciple of Jesus Christ.

8th Grade Dinner
Wednesday, May 29 | 6:30 - 9:00 p.m.
We want to celebrate our 8th graders before they head off to high school. So mark your calendars for this special dinner! Formal invitations to follow.
We gather together for worship on Sunday mornings at the 11:11 a.m. modern worship service. At the beginning of the service, all staff, leaders, and students worship together with the rest of the congregation, then the students are dismissed to the Youth Center for worship, breakfast snacks, and Bible study.
We are looking for parents who are willing to make or purchase breakfast snacks for the morning groups. If you would be willing to bring snacks for the Jr. High students on Sunday mornings, email email@example.com to be placed on the rotation.
Every weekend, junior high students have the opportunity to participate in our Sanctuary worship by serving as an usher, greeter, or children's ministry leader. For more info, contact Kristin Latourelle at 949.574.2264 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
