• Who We Are

    We are the Middle School Ministry for 5th through 8th grade students at Living Word Community Church. We LOVE middle school students and work hard to create environments just for them.

  • Why We Exist

    Our mission is to create grace-filled environments where the messiness of life, the message of hope, and the beauty of Jesus converge.

  • When Does It Happen?

    We meet every Sunday morning at 9:30 and 11:00 am.

    Throughout the year we plan fun activities, retreats, and other events.




  • We want every student in Middle School to “Encounter Jesus.”

    From the moment students enter the door to the time they leave we are intentionally creating a grace-filled environment that is Jesus centered. These environments are filled with fun games, engaging worship, relevant teaching, and small groups.

  • Every student in Middle School will have an opportunity to build relationships and do “Life Together” through a small group.

    We believe life is not designed to be lived alone. It’s crucial that students become relationally connected in a small group. This group helps students feel safe to ask questions, experience accountability, receive support, develop lasting friendships, and be empowered to follow Jesus.

  • Church is so much more than Sunday morning services.

    We emphasize serving others by challenging our students to take what they experience “Beyond Sunday.” We want the students to own their faith and live it out daily.
