Middle School at North tailors our experience to meet the specific needs of your 6th, 7th and 8th graders—whether you’ve grown up in the church or it’s your first time.

Our passion is to help you have Christ-centered homes and to equip parents to be your student’s primary spiritual leader.

We hope to see you and your students at our weekly worship environments and special events.

Sunday Service

In our Sunday worship experience, we employ creative ways to help your child engage in worship and discipleship. Live bands, games and activities, and creative Bible lessons are just some of the ways we help your child experience the Christ-centered life on Sunday mornings.

First-time guests?
We have delicious free food available in the Café before and after service. Students can also enjoy a game room to play pool, foosball, air hockey, Ping-Pong, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii and old school arcade games.

Wednesday Service

Students have fun playing zany games, have passionate worship, celebrate each other’s life accomplishments, and meet in small groups by grade and gender.

In this environment, students will not only learn God’s Word with their peers, but will also find ways to apply it in their lives, and then positively influence one another to live out the truths they discuss.

Daily Discipleship

Developing a Christ-centered life requires more than just attending a church service. We encourage you and your student to spend time getting to know God personally by reading His Word (The Bible) and having a conversation with Him (prayer) at least once each and every day.

Receive extra encouragement during the weekday. Pastor Joiner sends out an inspiring Bible verse. Think about it throughout the day and be strengthened.

Believer’s baptism is an outward sign of an inward change which happens when we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. Ready to share your story and celebrate with others?

Ways to Serve
