What can you expect in CF Middle School Ministry?
Sundays: Middle School Ministry gathers on Sundays at 9 am. This is a great space for middle schoolers to be welcomed by leaders who love Jesus and desire to build community with our students. Throughout 2023, students will learn how to live out their faith, how to read the Bible, and participate in large group discussions. For our kinesthetic learners, students will be invited to join us in hands-on activities that will develop their understanding of who Jesus is and how to live for Him.
Wednesdays: On Wednesdays, we offer small groups during 3 different sessions throughout the year. Your student can anticipate meeting their leader, sharing a meal or snack with their community, group games and activities, weekly biblical teaching, small group discussion, and the opportunity to develop mission-mindedness.
Volunteering: A key aspect of being a part of our middle school community is volunteering. We serve others to show love and to practice having a servant’s heart. In 1 John 4:19, we read “we love because he first loved us.” In Matthew 20:26-28, we learn “...instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave—just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” It is the hope of the middle school leaders and pastor that students would first desire to serve others simply because Christ served us.

Camps: Students can anticipate 3 different camp experiences; Fall (Oct), Winter (Feb), and Summer (June). These can range from day trips to over night experiences. We often will have moments in our lives where we need to get away from the distractions and monotony of our day to be with Jesus, to remove distractions, and to be with our community for extended periods of time. This is where our retreats come into our ministry. Jesus often “...went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.” (Luke 6:12) As we seek to be more like Him, we too will retreat to a place with our students to draw nearer to Him.

Middle School Winter Day Camp: February 25th
Our group of 80 headed out into our local community for 4 hands on serving opportunities. Our group split up and served at Quail Gardens, a 55+ retirement community. Our team played games with the seniors and started to build relationships so we can return. 1 group went to Walnut Grove Elementary school to help with their landscaping. A 3rd group helped deliver groceries with Tri-Valley Seek N Save. Our final group served a couple in our church who was moving from Dublin to Livermore. After our morning service projects we gathered at Cornerstone Livermore for pizza, a time of worship, messages, and reflection. Then, we'll began our 2nd service project. Our team built 300 blessing bags for our unsheltered neighbors. We played exciting games and finished with a BIG night game!
