WHO: 7th and 8th Grade
WHEN: 5:30–7:00 PM, Sundays from September–May
WHERE: Jr. High Ministry Center (Room 109)
Our Jr. High Ministry loves to have a lot of fun and help teens build positive relationships with each other; however, our main purpose is to help teens form and foster a relationship with Jesus Christ as their Savior, Lord, and highest treasure.
A normal flow of youth group would include a snack and hangout time, a game, a short lesson or teaching, and a follow-up group time. We believe that building personal relationships and trust among the students is the best way to foster spiritual growth, so groups are a key part of our ministry.
We also have several big events throughout the school year, including an overnighter in the fall and a weekend trip in the winter. Keep an eye out for updates as those trips approach!

Jr. High Bible Study
Join our Jr. High Bible Study on alternating Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 PM. This is the portion of our ministry that allows us to begin to develop a heart for the Word in Jr. Highers, giving them the tools to study the Bible on their own and introducing them to overarching themes of God’s story throughout history.
Remember, our schedule follows the rest of Peace Church’s children’s ministry of Bold Boys and Brave Girls on Wednesday nights, taking place on the first, third, and fifth (if applicable) Wednesday of every month (September–March). Our last evening for the 2017-2018 school year will be on Wednesday, March 21.
