Higher Ground Classes
Higher Ground (grades 6, 7/8) is a time for middle school youth to dig into the Bible; to learn and study God’s Truth. It is an opportunity for students to discuss what it means to have your life anchored in a Biblical worldview. Higher Ground classes take place during the weekend services. Kids worship with their parents in the service and head to the classroom when the sermon begins. Higher Ground meets in the basement classrooms, B02 & B04.
The students receive a weekly take-home handout which will be available in a PDF format at: Higher Ground: Weekend Discipleship Class
Middle School Parents:
Partnering with your church’s youth ministry is a tremendous asset in helping your teenager mature in the Christian faith.
Many adolescents have great difficulty in relating their spiritual life with the other important areas of their life, such as home, school, work, relationships and dating. It seems as if their spiritual life has no bearing on how they live their lives.
A compartmentalization takes place: this is my life at home, this is my life at school, this is my life at church. One of our main tasks as parents should be to help our kids to see that their faith is their life, in its entirety. To follow Christ is to follow Him with every part of our lives.
Your teenager is watching your life! They are looking for how you integrate your faith with real life. What a tremendous opportunity (and responsibility!) we have as parents to help our kids develop a genuine and enduring faith!
