Middle School Ministry

Jesus Christ invites all to “come and see” who He is and what He is about. Village middle school ministry is a place for students grades 6-8 to come and see. A place we gather to encounter, learn about and worship a truly remarkable God.

John 1:45-46 45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” 46 “Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?” Nathanael asked. “Come and see,” said Philip.

Camps and Conferences

CIY BELIEVE

November 9 & 10 at Rolling Hills Community Church (Tualatin)
Meet at North Village at 5:00 PM to carpool

Cost: $59 (for the weekend events)

Believe is a high-energy weekend event for middle school students only. It is structured specifically for middle school students and is packed with powerful worship and teaching from God’s Word. While at Believe, students not only worship together but also engage in life-challenging discussions with their peers and adult leaders. As they go through the weekend, they discover ways in which God is calling them to be Kingdom workers in their schools, communities and the world.

We will spend the night at Village and provide late night snacks and breakfast. Bring $$ for Saturday lunch, Bible, notebook, pen, sleeping gear, and a change of clothes.
