AWAKEN Middle School Ministry is open to students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. AWAKEN meets on Sunday mornings in the Student Center; doors open at 10:00am and the service ends at noon. During an AWAKEN service, middle school students can expect to engage in worship, participate in a message, and interact with and play games with their peers.
Throughout the year, AWAKEN attends a ONE DAY conference in the fall, an annual trip to Six Flags in NJ, Ignite Camp in July, the Beach Tour in August, and many other events held in the Student Center, at the church, and locally. AWAKEN also hosts small groups for Middle School students on the weekend and twice a month during the week.
Our goal is to see the lives of High School Students changed by Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit through worship, word, and relationships. In this critical stage of life, we desire to build strong foundations in Christ through word and prayer. We aspire to see them experience Jesus one on one so they may go and be disciples to their circle of influence. Shift meets each Wednesday at 6:45pm-8:00pm.
Mathew 6:6 (MSG)
“Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will SHIFT from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace."
