Middle School Youth Group is for students in 6th-8th grades.
Our goal is for students to discover they are known and loved by God. We look to create safe, fun environments where students can deepen their understanding of God, explore who God created them to be, connect with their peers, and learn about the church and their role in it.
The middle school years are full of excitement and change as students transition to adolescence. Our ministry partners with parents in navigating the twists and turns of preteen development by providing helpful resources throughout the year.
Every Friday night, we get together to hang out, play games, and enjoy some snacks. We close out the night with a brief message, worship, and small groups that are organized by grade and gender. We also have special events like gym nights, a winter retreat, and a summer service trip!
Come check us out on Fridays during the academic year from 6:30pm - 9:00pm in the Highrock Commons (main church building basement).
Fall: September 13 - December 13, 2019
Winter: January 24 - May 1, 2020
Twice a semester we diverge from the normal rhythm of youth group and rent out gym space at Pierce Elementary School (85 Park Avenue Extension, Arlington MA). It's a fun night for students to decompress in the midst of a busy semester and connect to one another through games, crafts, and pizza.
This year's Deep Freeze will be Friday, February 7th to Sunday, February 9th, 2020. Deep Freeze is our annual winter retreat where we take our Middle School Students (6th - 8th grade) for a weekend to Camp Berea. It's a weekend filled with tubing, games, cabin time, good food, high-energy worship, and tons of space to build connections. Deep Freeze is the highlight of the year for many of our students and continues to be a catalyst for deeper connections for our Youth Group.
We have several classes for middle schoolers on Sundays during the 10:45am service.
