Middle School Ministry


Welcome to our Middle School Ministry page. You will find information for students from 5th grade through 8th grade here. We offer Sunday Morning Education and Wednesday evening Confirmation classes during the school year. There is a milestone or special event for each grade level. Activities and service opportunities are offered to our students and families throughout the year. Our CYF mission statement and goals (found on CYF page) help focus and guide our ministry. See below for an overview of our ministry.

Mission Statement

To empower families as partners to nurture children in a Christ-centered faith.

Middle School Ministry Highlights

Sunday Morning Education

Forum 56: Weekly education for grades 5th & 6th Grade. We use a large group, small group rotation to explore our lessons in creative ways. We learn about ways to serve, lead and to follow through peer ministry and youth leadership.

 Anchored: Weekly education for grades 7th & 8th. Students meet in a more informal Bible study format building more faith practices from what we’ve started in Forum 56.

Confirmation Weekly Classes

Confirmation starts in the spring of 6th grade. 7th & 8th Grade Students attend weekly classes in small groups learning more about the Lutheran Catechism and ways to live out their faith in their community and at home.

Student and Family Events

Bi-monthly activities are offered for students and families. Examples include social faith focused gatherings for students and friends, group day trips, service opportunities, etc.

Milestones, Trips and Special Events

Each year (grade specific) our students will have a special event, trip or milestone to celebrate. Examples include 1st Communion, Confirmation Camp, Mission Trips, etc.
