• Why is he smiling?

    It could be the food... the games... the friends...

    or it could just be he likes being in front of a camera

  • He doesn't know it...

    But he is about to get hit!

    He should be watching the game, not the camera.

  • Steiner Frog?

    Is it a man? Or is it a frog?

    Well, we really aren't sure, but we like having him around!

  • Kerplunk

    Yes. You are seeing that correctly...

    This is what happens when you put Miracle-Grow on your game shelf.

Jr High Stuff


During our junior high years we are forming: our identities, relationships, world views. We do this with school and friends, but even more important is to form strong identity, relationship and world view with the God who made us. He loves us... zits and all. J-Group is our space for enjoying these crazy years of formation.

We meet every-other Friday night, from 6:30-8:30pm. Each family takes turns sharing snacks. Each young person should bring a bible, a friend and a positive attitude. There is no need to bring cell phones as we don't allow them during group time, not that you would want to.

CHECK THE CALENDAR for exact dates. 

Each group includes activities, snacks, lots of laughs, time to hang out and most importantly, time to study the Bible together. Each person is given a bible study workbook with things for them to read and write during the weeks between group so that we can talk about it when we meet the next time. We really enjoy studying together!

If you have questions, please contact us!
