Our 12:13 Middle School ministry for students in Grades 6-8 is undergoing reconstruction!
This fall we’ll be welcoming Will Laing and family to Covenant Life and we will be increasing our ministry to middle school students. We will begin by concentrating our energies on making Wednesday nights a great experience for middle schoolers. For this reason, and a few others, we are discontinuing our Sunday morning 12:13 program.
We’re excited about building our Middle School Ministry with you. Come out and be part of the “process”!
We’ve received positive feedback on our trial run of Wednesday night meetings this winter and spring. One parent wrote in:
“… a quick note to let you know how thankful I am for the Wednesday night Middle School Bible study. My son and his friend have been attending regularly since the ministry started, and I have seen great growth in the group. I attend with my son and have gotten a chance to see how the study has progressed. Last night I enjoyed watching Chris Maresco teach the kids to study Colossians 1. He engaged them with a video and had them asking great questions… I just wanted to let you know that having this once-a-week study for both the middle schoolers and the high schoolers has been very fruitful.”
The Sunday 12:13 class has been a highlight for many young teens since 2008. Gregory and our wonderful volunteers have made these times very effective and fruitful! The students have been enthusiastically involved in class-sponsored service projects, compiling hundreds of shoeboxes of gifts for needy children via Operation Christmas Child and “adopting” three American soldiers as part of Soldiers' Angels.

See you on Wednesday, Sept 9!
