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.
