7th-8th Grade Ministry

Elevate 78

SUNDAYS | 8:45 AM | 10:45 AM | WEDNESDAYS | 6:30 PM - 8 PM

ELEVATE exists to help 7th & 8th graders Take the Next Step in their relationship with God.

 

We meet for weekend services at 9 am and 11am on Sunday morning. Midweek gathering happens Wednesday nights from 6:30-8 pm. In addition, we schedule camps, trips, outreach projects, and other special events throughout the year.

Our ministry is shaped by some core convictions:

  • God has given everyone the capacity to know him and respond to him in faith, regardless of their age.
  • We need to be innovative. Studies have shown that most kids who go to church will walk away from their faith as young adults. We can’t just do the same old thing and expect different results.
  • Parenting an early adolescent is a different beast. We want to support parents in meeting this challenge, through classes, seminars, and parent networking.
  • One of the biggest needs of early adolescents is the presence of caring adults in their lives.
  • 7th & 8th grade kids need chances to discover and develop their gifts, and opportunities to do ministry out in the world.

Discipleship

DX – Discipleship Experience

DX-1 is a self-paced, partner-based discipleship plan, meant to train you at getting REALLY good at spending time with God. In the first stage, you and a partner work your way through some introductory units: Heart, Influences, Relationships, God, the Cross, Time, and Will. In the second stage, you and your partner will work through the challenge of spending time with God for 40 days, using readings from a resource called Awesome God. Once a week you will meet together with a discipleship coach (you can pick this person when you sign up, or we can assign someone to you) to talk about how it’s going.
