Middle School


Middle School Ministry

Available at:
Lakewood Ranch
Our Goal
Our goal is to foster a vibrant and joyful community among Middle School students, igniting a deep love for Jesus through engaging and interactive Biblical literacy experiences.

Dynamic Worship

Check in next to the Lighthouse Room in the lobby, and then join the rest of the Middle School students and leaders in the Lighthouse Room to worship!

The Ride Over

After worship, hop onto the bus with your friends and take the trip to Centauri where games are waiting for you.

Our Vision

Our vision is to see Middle School students passionately living out their faith, empowered by a deep love for Jesus and a strong foundation in Biblical literacy. We envision a community where each individual feels connected, supported, and inspired to make a positive impact in their world, guided by the teachings of Christ and the principles of the Bible.

Fun+ Relevant Message

Each week, students kick off the service with intentional fun and game time, followed by an engaging message relevant to their lives as they gather with friends.

Return to Church

Hop back on the party bus so we can get you back to your family in the lobby right as service finishes.
