Common Grounds Cafe is offered at the 9:00 am hour only in the Game Room (Room 200) for X-treeme students. Enjoy catching up with friends, delicious refreshments, and some helpful teaching on being a leader. Come each week, or come when you are in town! You will be warmly welcomed!
J.A.M. (6-8th graders)
J.A.M. students will meet together at 9:00 am only in Room 204 for the summer.
J.A.M. for 6-8th graders
J.A.M. is a ministry for middle school students in 6-8th grades. J.A.M. stands for Jesus and Me because students learn to develop a close, personal relationship with Jesus through our J.A.M. programs. Meets September through May. Watch for special events through the summer.
X-treeme stands for Christ died on a Tree for Me. This comes from 1 Peter 2:24.
Jesus is what X-treeme is about! X-treeme meets throughout the school year on Sunday nights. The "FIRST" Sunday of the month is a high energy, fun event designed for you and your friends to come and see who Jesus is. "FIRST" Sunday events include Dodgeball Tournament, a live Turkey Hunt (Road Rally), Christmas Party, Concert, Broomball night and much more.
The other Sunday nights are for students to come and worship Jesus through singing, prayer and teaching called X-treeme Sunday Specials. Following our time at church we go to a local restaurant to enjoy a meal together. Come once, come each week! We love to point teenagers to Jesus!
What is a discipleship group?
A group of available, faithful, teachable, and responsive 7th-12th grade students determined to grow in Christ-likeness and practically live out their faith. Discipleship Groups consist of 6-8 female or male students and one or two adult and/or student leaders. Groups meet weekly throughout the school year for Bible study, prayer, sharing, training, and fellowship.
Who should join a discipleship group?
- Only those students who seriously want to grow deeper in their faith.
- Only those who really want to serve Jesus.
- Only those who are willing to be held accountable and to hold others accountable in love.
- Only those who can really commit themselves to the group.
What commitments would I have to make?
- Regularly attend weekly meetings (lasting approximately 1 1/2 hours). Meeting dates and times are determined by consensus of each group.
- Willingness to support peers within the group through prayer,encouragement, reproof in love, etc.
- A diligent study of Christian growth disciplines and discipleship (including occasional homework assignments).
- Serving Midland Free and other organizations through service
projects (as a group).
Why do we have to have commitments?
- To have people of like mind together, committed to the same strategy and carrying it out the same way. And as a tool to help you discern whether or not God wants you to be involved.
- Please pray about your decision to commit to a Discipleship Group. It can be loads of fun as your group grows together, but it can also be very challenging.
