Welcome to our Shift Middle School Community! Shift is a ministry specifically designed for 7th and 8th graders. It is a place where we come to laugh, play, make new friends, worship and learn about God’s amazing love for us and the world. We do this on Tuesday nights as well as annual events and retreats. Our dream is for every middle schooler to recognize their potential and use their unique gifts and talents to further the Kingdom of God in their communities. Take a look below for the current series and upcoming events.
Shift meets every Tuesday night of the school calendar year from 7-9pm. We start in the Lobby/Gym for some mingle time and a super fun game opener and head downstairs to our youth room for worship, a message and small group time. Every student who comes on Tuesdays is placed in a small group with one or two adult leaders where they have a chance to respond to what we’ve been learning through activities and discussions. The majority of our community is built through our Tuesday night gatherings and small group time, so you won’t want to miss it!
We all have expectations about how things are supposed to be. When it comes to dating and sexuality, sometimes our expectations can get a little out of whack. Join us in this series as we unpack the ways media, cultural messages and our peers impact how we view sexuality and the important things God has to say about it.
The Urban Plunge experience is our middle school mission trip experience. This year we will be partnering with an organization called KALEO Missions in Portland, Oregon from July 15-20th.
