Middle School Opportunities (Grades 6th-8th)

Wednesday Night Bible Study – Journey through the Old Testament

This year our MS faith formation program is being revamped. Any middle schooler who is interested in a dynamic and engaging journey through the Old Testament is invited to the Youth Room on Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30 pm. Your child will grow in their relationship with God, their familiarity with the scriptures, and their relationship with other faith-filled middle schoolers. The program features a weekly scripture study, prayer, and a competition for the kingdom cup. Students will work together to create a timeline of the Old Testament based on the stories they read. The scripture study we will be following will be the Great Adventure Bible Timeline (modified by Sarah for middle schoolers). Not sure if you want to register? Come check it out first. Scholarships are available for students.

Once per month, whole families are invited to come for family discipleship. Part of the evening will include programming for families before splitting into the different age groups. Parents will attend a presentation in St. Joseph’s Hall while middle school students head to the Youth Room. Make sure to mark these dates on your calendar. I will also send out email reminders!

Our registration window is now closed.  If you would like to sign up your child(ren), please contact Sarah with questions at
