Youth Ministry- 7th to 12th Grade

Our youth ministry continues to grow and transform as we grow in our understanding and knowledge of who God is and who He calls each one of us to be. We hope that you will join us and be part of discovering the God-sized opportunities that lay ahead.

Sunday Morning

Our youth play an active role in Sunday morning worship services, and the style of our services make them relevant to all age groups. Following the 9:00 service, we have a Connection Group for students 7th/8th grade and 9th-12th where we are challenged with what God has to say to us through scripture, prayer and each other! 

 

Dover Fusion

Join over 100 youth from our community for Dover FUSION, Sundays from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. at Dover-Foxcroft Farm for sports, music, food, inspiration and fun! Bring your friends and connect.

Elevate – Youth Ministry Program for Preteens

You will seek and find me when you seek with all your heart. ~Jeremiah 29:13
5th and 6th graders are in transition…they feel too old to be grouped with elementary aged children, yet they are too young to be in the 7th – 12th grade youth.  They are Tweens.

 

Focusing on a theme of Up, In and Out, Elevate will offer:

Following Sunday worship service (UP), 5th and 6th grade tweens will meet IN the H.U.B., (Headquarters for the Ultimate Believer).  Here, the hope is that tweens will hook into God as they mature in their faith to a personal commitment to trust Jesus and to walk with him as Lord. Growing in their understanding of friendship and discipleship, they can become ambassadors of Christ in their schools and communities.

 

Every 6-8 weeks, Elevate will meet OUT of the H.U.B. for an effective, non-threatening environment for a game of kickball, bowling, special events planned by Fusion, and volunteering out in the community, in which, tweens may invite other friends, Christian and non-Christian.
 
Through these activites, the group will discover more about themselves as they build special relationships, practice some of the ways we are called to live together in  Christian Community and explore their faith. And, of course, have FUN!
