Elevate is a space for our middle school students to worship, have fun, connect with one another and become fully devoted followers of Christ. Each week our students participate in worship and teaching designed for specifically for them.



Elevate strives to be a community of students passionately following Jesus in a way that compels others to follow Him.

Middle School students meet in the Student Ministry Room at 11am for service. (North Entrance of Building) We start out with some food and hangout time, then go right into worship and a short message. After that, we go into small groups with our student ministry leaders. Our Sunday service ends at the same time as the main worship service.


What We Believe

Our curriculum is designed to give our middle schoolers a fun and transformative experience. Our students are a big part of the church, we believe it is important to teach our students the skills needed to remain, or become followers of God throughout middle school into high school and beyond.
