Pursuit Middle School Ministry
Hike - Discovering Truth. We believe that students can first engage in the hike of discovering God’s truth through the relevant and impacting worship and messages in Pursuit services.
Join us Sundays from 10:10-11:40am in the Pursuit Café!
Scale - Climbing in Faith. Pursuing new heights in a relationship with Jesus means doing it together in our group venues.
All middle schoolers are welcome for a time of board games, minute to win its, and food! May the best team win! Shindigs are the first Wednesday of every month from 6:30-8:00pm during the school year!
They can be a movie night, game night, workshop, craft night, service project, cooking project -- really anything that can serve as a good "just guy" or "just girl" time. A short sermon jam will always be shared that ties into the event that evening!
Summer Halftime: Pursuit Middle students (grades 6-8) are invited every Wednesday night from 6:30-8:00pm. Students who attend will experience a deepening of their faith through an intentional study of God’s Word in the presence of an encouraging community. They will learn to engage scriptural truths in their daily lives by intimately walking with Christ and loving His Word.
Run-Racing to Tell Others. Our young people can race toward others with the Good News of Jesus through projects, trips, and in a variety of serving and leadership opportunities like our Student Leader Team, Welcome and Café Team, Production Team or Worship Team.
Production Team: Students with a knack for tech and lighting can plug in and help our skilled Production Leaders with running sound, lighting, media and staging during Sunday service and retreats.
Most serving opportunities for Pursuit Middle students will take place through Shindigs.
