MIDDLE SCHOOL MEETS SUNDAY MORNINGS AT 11AM.

August - Caught Up

In our "Caught Up" series, we're talking about comparison. That tendency we all have to get caught up in the cycle of comparing something about ourselves against something about someone else. You know your middle schoolers are dealing with this on a daily basis! But, as we’ll help your students see in this series, when they take a step back and start seeing themselves, their lives, and others the way God does, they’ll realize that there’s no need to compare!
WEEK 1: God doesn’t compare you to others. 
WEEK 2: Celebrating is better than comparing. 
WEEK 3: Choose to see yourself the way God does.

September - Stuck Together

Our next  called Stuck Together, and it’s all about navigating the good, the bad, and the complicated parts of the one thing we all have in common: family! And as we all know, the complex dynamics that come with being a part of a fam can be anything from amazing and peaceful to stressful and unpredictable. Our prayer is that students will leave this series with a new understanding of the way God can love them, help them, comfort them, and provide for them when it comes to their family!
WEEK 1: Loving your family can make an impact.
WEEK 2: Your family doesn’t have to be perfect for God to use it.

WEEK 3: When your family changes, God is with you.
WEEK 4: Sometimes friends are more like family.

October - Compass

If you're not aware, the stats that say something like 37% of teenagers have never read the Bible. That is a problem! Not just because the Bible is one of the ways we hear from God, but because the Bible is where we discover Jesus. Our students can't afford to miss out on a chance to find the God who loves them on those pages. The goal of this "Compass" series? To equip your students with the tools they need to navigate the Bible themselves and put its wisdom to work in their lives
WEEK 1: We read the Bible because God is in it.
WEEK 2: Context helps us understand the Bible.
WEEK 3: The Bible points us to Jesus.
WEEK 4: The Bible gives us wisdom.

GAINZ is a three-week sermon series that aims to help students develop spiritual muscle. This series investigates the temptation of Jesus found in Matthew 4:1-11. Through the three different temptations Jesus faced, we explore the three spiritual muscles that Jesus used to fight and win against temptation. This series will help students understand why growing their spiritual lives is important and also learn three practical ways to do it.
WEEK 1: You can’t always hide from temptation, but you can be ready for it.
WEEK 2: Trusting God is better than testing God.
WEEK 3: Feed what you want to grow, starve what you want to die.
For better or worse, social media is a major player in most of your students’ lives—in how they think, what they believe, and how they interact with the world around them. This two-lesson curriculum uses discussion, videos, Scripture, and games to help them think biblically about ways they might use social media to share Jesus’s love and truth with others.

In the 1970s, young Greg Laurie is searching for all the right things in all the wrong places: until he meets Lonnie Frisbee, a charismatic hippie street preacher. Together with Pastor Chuck Smith, they open the doors of Smith’s languishing church to an unexpected revival of radical and newfound love, leading to what TIME Magazine dubbed a JESUS REVOLUTION. The Jesus Revolution is a great movie and an even better opportunity for you to talk with students about how the Love of Jesus is bigger than any of our differences.
Jesus Revolution is rated PG-13.    IMDB Parent Guide
