Faith is an awe-inspiring adventure! High-energy, impactful and hands-on, our programs engage youth in God’s world guided by God’s word. Teens come to know the Bible as a relevant, dynamic guide for navigating life’s ups and downs. They discover what it means to be a child of God—and why it matters. Working side-by-side, they forge friendships, learn to value one another, and change lives one plate of meatloaf, one adobe clay brick, one kind word at a time. 

 

Middle School Programs

Sunday School – Every Sunday during 10:00 AM Service – Together, teens delve into the Bible and examine their Christian faith and its relevancy in today’s world. Probing questions such as, “What exactly does it mean to be a servant of Christ?” and “Why does God allow bad things to happen to good people” are explored, helping students deepen their relationship with God. Amidst the dialogue and laughter, strong friendships built on respect, honesty and acceptance develop, the kind that last.

Middle School Youth Group – Every Sunday 2:30 – 4:00 PM – Middle schoolers enjoy snacks and group bonding activities that teach trust, acceptance, honesty and love. Biblical lessons and meaningful discussions explore issues that teens face—school and home life, friends and bullies, insecurity and confidence, and life’s daily stresses—from a Christian perspective. The group also shares its spiritual gifts outside of the church by collaborating on community service projects, as well as going on group adventures to places like Lake Compounce, high ropes and outdoor adventure courses, and retreats.

 

All Middle School Programs are lead by Lydia Gajdel lydia@wiltoncongregational.org, our Director of Youth Ministries and adult supervisors in a fun, safe and respectful environment. Friends are always welcome, so bring yours along!
