Middle School services are designed to be really fun but also serious at the same time! We like to have a fun game at the beginning of every service, then have a time of worship with a full band; then we study the bible together!
High School services are amazing times of fellowship, worship, study and small groups! We always have a time of worship and teaching then break into small groups where we discuss the message that was taught and have time to ask questions or talk about what God is teaching us.
