Middle School (6-8th Grade)

For a lot of middle school kids, it’s all about “me.” And here at Bay Life, we build on thatin a good way.

Our aim is to get our middle school students to own their faith. To realize their relationship with Christ is no longer about what mom and dad believe, but instead it’s about what their own personal faith.

We want to motivate our middle school students to take personal responsibility for their spiritual health and growth, and to take seriously the Great Commission. Once they start catching on to these simple truths, they’ll naturally realize that it’s not all about “me” … and that will be a beautiful thing to watch.

Each week, students experience a combination of worship, games, a challenging message, and most importantly, interaction with a small group.

The Middle School Ministry (6-8th Grade) meets in The Loft (in the Student Center) on Sundays during the 9:00am worship service, and Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30pm.
