Wednesday Opening Series: How To Be Awesome
Crossroads, 6:30-8:00pm, The Corner
Our opening series for youth group is “How to be Awesome,” a study of the book of James. Not long after Jesus left Earth, James wrote this practical letter to the believers who were working out what their new lives as Christ-followers should look like, making James an excellent book for those new to faith or for mature believers to get back to basics. The music and messages of the first 5 weeks of youth group will be centered on this beautiful book verse by verse in a way that is fun and engaging for Middle Schoolers!
Beginning September 18
9:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. in the Corner (1st Floor)
Led by Steven Olan
Join us in the Middle School Corner every Sunday for a light breakfast and some gathering games before we dive into the Bible through games, discussion, crafts, and more! All 6th, 7th & 8th graders gather together for this more relaxed time to get to know one another! Throughout the year, when something special is happening in worship, we will attend church with our families.

But the comical ghost of Ole Melonmasher won’t let his treasure be discovered so easily! Oh no, he’ll haunt the teams the entire way… Registration is required. Cost is $25 and includes a t-shirt and snack. Middle schoolers are encouraged to invite friends!
