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.

Guys & Girls Night Out

Date: June 14th, 5-8pm
Cost: $5

Every summer we have a Guys and Girls Night at the end of the school year to welcome our new 6th graders and say goodbye to the 8th graders as they graduate from Middle School. Guys will meet in the Village gym for food, basketball, and video games. Girls will meet at Beth’s house at Cedar Hills Apartments for a potluck, swimming, and water games. This will give them a chance to meet other students, leaders, and have some fun before they officially move up to High School on June 16.

Guys: Meet at Village gym
Girls: Meet at Beth’s apartment at 905 SW Cedar Hills Blvd Portland, OR 97225
