Middle School Student IMPACT

Students in grades 6 - 8 have a variety of opportunities to get involved in Student IMPACT at Memorial Park Church. Our weekly programs that offer ways to build meaningful personal and spiritual relationships, as well as provide students with a platform to examine their faith and make the decision to follow Jesus. We strive for ongoing communication with parents and guardians to offer support in their role as the primary spiritual nurturer in the life of their student.

Students in grades 6-8 meet together on Sunday mornings from 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. during Memorial Park's Discipleship Hour. This dedicated time is an opportunity for students to learn and grow in their faith through Biblical teaching and small group discussion. This is a classroom format, but no homework is required and students can join the class at any time during the year. Our middle school Sunday morning program is led by our Middle School Coordinator, Jacob Soto. Click here for more information and Jacob will be in touch with you. 

 The Middle School Sunday school class will be meeting in Westminster hall for the start of the year. Because we might have limited capacity in our room we are asking you to please register your child if they plan to attend. You will be able to do this on the same form that you can register for worship services on. If you have any questions about how that may work, when to expect those emails, or anything else regarding the registration process do not hesitate to reach out!
Our regular Youth Group meetings for students in grades 6-8 happen on Sunday evenings at the Clayton Center from 4:30-6:00 p.m. during the school year. We begin with games and hangout time, followed by a time of worship, a speaker led teaching and small group discussion.  While we are going to spend as much time as possible outside while its nice, please send your child with a mask because we are requiring them for when we are indoors. I am looking forward to getting back together! If you have any questions about what the groups might look like, don’t hesitate to reach out by responding to this email. This program is led by our Middle School Coordinator, Jacob Soto.

Teen LIFE Groups are a great way to dive deeper into scripture as we meet for small group study. Teen LIFE Groups meet on Wednesday evenings at the Clayton Center from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Guys and girls meet separately for study and discussion and you can join at any time during the year. In order to comply with safety protocols we will be requiring masks to be worn while the groups meet. If you have any questions about what the groups might look like, don’t hesitate to reach out by responding to this email. There is no need to RSVP and students can jump in any time!
 
Once a year, students in grades 6-8 and Student IMPACT leaders head to Laurelville Camp and Conference Center for a weekend of building relationships, growing closer to Jesus, and having fun! Generally, the Laurelville Retreat happens in late fall and is scheduled for Friday-Sunday. Activities have an emphasis on fun, recreation, Bible lessons and traditional camp activities – hiking, swimming, crafts, mini golf, and Ga Ga ball. Learn more about Laurelville Retreat Center here.
Mission trips and service projects are great ways to grow in your faith while serving to further God's kingdom. Stretching and reaching beyond your comfort zone to help the needy and hurting in our community and our world can be a life-changing and everlasting experience. Each year, Middle School students have an opportunity to participate in a local Mission "Trip" that we call Serve City. Students in grades 6-8 stay overnight at the Clayton Center for the week while each day they travel to local organizations to serve the surrounding community. In past years, we have visited organizations such as World Vision, North Hills Community Outreach, and others.

Details on the trip are generally released in mid-January and the trip usually takes place in late July. For more information, contact Middle School Coordinator, Jacob Soto.
