MIDDLE SCHOOL YOUTH MINISTRY ​
Sundays, 4-5:15 at Christ King

WE STRIVE TO BE:

  • Christ-Centered & Holy Spirit Directed: As children of the Father, Jesus Christ is the savior of us all and the hero of our story. Everything we do is in love of Him, through the discernment and power of the Holy Spirit, and is in the hopes of helping others “live life to the full,” (John 10:10). ​​ 
  • Unapologetically Catholic: We love the Church that Christ established and the treasury of wisdom, witness, and worship she offers us. As fellow members of the Communion of Saints and the Body of Christ, we invite teens and families to share in the sacramental life of the Church. ​​ 
  • A Community of Belonging: Our sessions are open to all 6-8th graders. We strive to offer an environment where students can find authentic friendships, be genuine in their questions and doubts, and be loved and challenged by adults and one another. ​​ 
  • Dynamic & Engaging: We strive to preach the Gospel in a dynamic way and give students the opportunity to respond to it in discussion and prayer. We want every student to know that they matter, they have a role to play in the Kingdom, and to participate in the life of the Church, both inside and outside of the parish walls. ​​ 
  • Structured Environment: We offer all of this in a structured 75 min. program that encompasses fun and games, a message, discussion, Scripture, and prayer. In an effort to keep our kids engaged and moving, we will divide students into small groups and then each group will rotate through 4 stations each class: lesson/video, scripture, discussion/saint, and prayer.  

6-7th GRADE TOPIC:  Encounter: The Bible Timeline for Middle School
Encounter is a Catholic Bible study designed specifically for grades 6 to 8. Using the color-coded Bible Timeline Learning System, each session of Encounter reveals the story of our faith and God’s plan for our lives. This captivating program guides students toward a powerful encounter with God. Encounter is much more than your average Bible study program. It is a life-changing experience that speaks directly to the hearts and minds of middle school-aged kids. As your students are drawn into this story, they will come to a new and profound understanding of who God is. Most importantly, they will come to know God not as a distant doctrinal concept, but as a loving Father who desires a meaningful and lasting encounter with them. Preview it here!

8th GRADE TOPIC: Envision: Theology of the Body for Middle School
All hearts, especially the hearts of young people, are hungry for God’s truth about love, identity, and dignity. Middle schoolers today are constantly asking questions about who they are, who they should be, and where true success and happiness can be found. Countless sources—including pop culture, social media, and their peers—are ready to provide them answers. Amidst all the confusion, St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body offers clear answers about our identity, relationships, and sexuality—and Ascension’s newest program makes this timeless wisdom accessible and relatable to middle school students.
