When we enter relationships with the illusion that people are normal, we resist the truth that they are not.  We enter an endless attempt to fix them, control them, or pretend that they are what they're not.  One of the great marks of maturity is to accept the fact that everybody comes "as is."

-John Ortberg

Middle School


Middle school is a time when kids make important decisions about who they are and what they believe. Middle School ministry is a place where every middle school kid can connect to great friends in a community, connect to fun and energetic leaders, and connect to Jesus.

High School


These are busy years, full of changes and transitions. We want every student to have a place to feel completely accepted and yet challenged, to experience fellowship and community, to develop a personal relationship with Jesus, and to be empowered to use their gifts.
