PowerLife

PowerLife is a fun, safe and welcoming environment where junior high students (grades 6-8) can explore the Bible, ask challenging questions about life, meet new friends and confirm their faith in Jesus Christ.

Our time together on Wednesday nights includes worship with a live band; a relevant message – rooted in Scripture – addressing the challenges students are facing; heartfelt small group discussions led by faithful volunteers; prayer time; and, of course, lots of fun games! We also encourage students to apply their faith to every aspect of their life by learning the value of praying together, reading Scripture and serving those in need.

Each student is placed into a small group which is led by at least one adult and is formed according to their gender, grade level, school district and friend requests.

PowerLife meets Wednesdays during the school year (September - April): 
Grade 6: 6:00-7:15 pm
Grade 7: 6:45-8:00 pm
Grade 8: 7:30-9:00 pm
