"Thieves will come to steal, kill and destroy; but I have come that you may have real and eternal life, and a better life than they could ever dream of." John 10:10 MSG
Glen Lake Middle School Ministry is about building community through meaningful relationships. Our middle school students are in a season of discovery, questioning, developing, and learning about who they are. We know this is an important season in their life and we want to meet them where they are at to build meaningful relationships, share God's word, and grow into a spiritual community. Our mission is that students' lives will be transformed as we learn what it means to UNPLUG from the world and PLUG INTO Christ in these three areas community, ministry, and Jesus Christ by being established in the Father's unconditional love for us. We will practically do this through small groups, large group gatherings, shared meals, and trips.
Abby Nowicki, Director of Student Ministries
Trips & Events
Trips and events are an important part of building community with one another as well as with the surrounding community. They are a way for our students to dig deeper into the word and experience God in a new way.
Large Group Gatherings
Large group gatherings provide a space where every student, 6th-8th Grade student, is invited to experience the gospel through goofy games, singing songs, and sharing in conversation.
Serving One Another
Serving one another is an important part of who we are as Christians, and is a way for our students to engage in the gospel differently. We will do this through various opportunities in our local church, community, state, and country.
