Elevate (6-8 grade)
Elevate is the jr. high ministry of Willow Creek Dupage.
What is Elevate?
Elevate is church for jr. high students. Everything we do is designed to help jr. high guys and girls connect with God and strengthen friendships. Jr. high is a time of significant change in a kid's life and we want to be a consistent source of encouragement in every way we can.
What happens at Elevate?
Elevate's doors open at 8:45 a.m. every Sunday in the Student Center at Wheaton Academy.
You'll have the chance to do all of the following:
- Hang out with friends in the lobby or the gym.
- Connect with a volunteer who cares about you.
- Experience the program with worship, games, videos, stories and a message designed for 6th, 7th and 8th graders.
- Be in a "small group" after the program.
What are Elevate Small Groups?
A small group consists of about 8-10 same-grade, same-gender friends and an adult leader. The goals are to help students build solid friendships, have a safe place to discuss the message from the program and grow in their relationship with God.
