The Ring (Middle High)

The Ring (middle high students) continues the journey down the path of discipleship by learning about the Bible and church history. These youth participate in monthly service and fellowship events.

Middle High youth group meets weekly on Thursday evenings:
4:30 to 5:00 Gym Activities
5:00 to 5:30 Dinner/Fellowship
5:30 to 6:15 Confirmation Classes

The confirmation class study hour, includes sixth through eighth grade students.  Youth are also involved in extracurricular activities throughout the school year. There are student advisors who help teach the classes and are involved in every aspect of the program.

Youth Retreats:  Each year both our middle and senior high youth participate in winter retreats.  These are great opportunities to grow together as a group and fellowship with one another.  It gives the youth director and youth mentors a chance to connect with the group as a whole as well as one-on-one with the kids, building relationships and growing unity.  The groups participate in a themed study throughout the weekend and share in small group discussions.  Retreats have a tremendous impact on the whole group and truly bring them together as friends, building solid relationships and connections with one another to grow as Disciples of Christ.

Events outside of the church setting help these young people learn to share their faith with each other and gain a level of trust and security; these things are imperative for our youth to gain the confidence to share their faith with others outside the comforts of the church setting.
