What can you expect in CF Middle School Ministry?
Meet Your Middle School Pastor
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.

Let's Talk About... Small Groups: In this series, we want students to recognize the value of walking alongside community in their faith and the potential they have to make their community—their small group—better by what they put into it!
September 9: You can help make small group a great experience for everyone.
Caught Up: A series on comparison is unique in that it can cross all ages, phases, and stages of life. This isn’t just a middle school experience; it’s a human experience! No matter who we are, we’re all likely to find ourselves caught up in comparison.
September 13: God doesn’t compare you to others.
September 20: Celebrating is better than comparing.
September 27: Choose to see yourself the way God does.
Stuck Together: A series on family can be tricky because every student in the room comes with a different experience and family dynamic. The goal here isn’t to set one kind of family above the rest. Rather, it’s to remind students that, when dealing with the good, the hard, and the everything in between with family, they have the Spirit of God to lead them toward what’s best, for them, for the family they’re born with, and for the family they choose.
October 4: Your family doesn’t have to be perfect for God to use it.
October 11: Your family doesn’t have to be perfect for God to use it.
October 18: When your family changes, God is with you.
October 25: Sometimes friends are more like family.
