Middle School Ministry
All 5th-8th Graders
For Children, Youth and Family programming, including indoor Sunday School, Youth Group, Confirmation, and 10:30 Family Worship, we value being able to connect in–person. For the fall, we strongly recommend and encourage all to be masked during programming, young children masked as able.
5th & 6th Graders
5th & 6th Graders meet twice monthly on Sunday evenings from 4:30-6:00 p.m. (alternating with the 7th and 8th graders). We will start with a light meal and then move into class time. In these years, students are engaged in a Bible overview led by volunteer leaders. The 5th and 6th graders are also invited to participate in monthly social events, can participate in Kids of the Kingdom, and are invited to participate in worship as musicians, readers, acolytes, and ushers.
7th and 8th Graders/Confirmation
The 7th and 8th grade confirmation classes will meet twice monthly on Sunday evenings from 4:30-6:00 p.m. (alternating with 5th and 6th graders). In these two years, students will learn about Martin Luther, the Ten Commandments, the Apostle’s Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Sacraments. Each session will start with a light meal and then lead into class time.
For the Fall, we are offering drop-in small group time for our 5th and 6th graders and our 7th and 8th graders. Meet us in Large Group Sunday School at 9:30 and then break into your Small Group for service, fellowship and great discussion.
Monthly Social & Service Events
5th-8th Graders will be invited to monthly scheduled events where they can build community with each other, St. John’s, and the greater church through play, serving, and retreats.
