JAM (Jr. High)

JAM (JESUS AND ME) – Youth Ministry Fellowship for 7th & 8th Grade Students

Leader: Kelly Sheckell

Meets Sunday evenings (September- May) from 6 – 8:00 p.m. – gather in the Youth Lounge

Students in 7th and 8th grades gather for food, fun, and fellowship each Sunday night. These students are just beginning the process of forming a faith of their own. JAM is about forming strong supporting relationships with other students who are also going through the same discernment process. JAM time is full of laughter and fun, as well as some meaningful discussion topics about challenges facing middle school-aged students.

For more information, or if you’re thinking about joining us, please contact Kelly Sheckell She'll love to help you get connected!

Calling all incoming 7th-9th graders: F.R.O.G. Week – Friends Reaching Out for God - is August 8-12, 2016

Leader: Kelly Sheckell

Youth will perform local service projects and participate in exciting activities. Our goal is to embrace God’s grace, come together in fellowship, and have FUN!

Each day, we begin at the church learning about the people we will be serving, exploring God’s word, and discussing the importance of helping. We will then be going into the community to extend God’s love to the people in need. In order to meet the needs of the local charities we will be helping, our hours will vary from day to day.

Here's this year's schedule! (Local charities we are assisting are in parenthesis.)

  • Monday, August 8th - We will meet from 11:30-3:00 (N.O.A.H. Project at church) Lunch included.
