Owning Faith

Middle School Ministry, Grades 7 and 8

Middle school can be a challenging time for students as they begin adolescence or are already in the throes of it. While this is a time of great change, it is also a time of great opportunity for students to make their faith their own. Adolescence is a time of moving from dependence on parents to independence in all areas of life, including faith. 

... that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Philippians 1:6
