There are more changes that take place during a student's time in Middle School then any other season of life it seems. One week they are playing video games and eating Cheetos and the next they are asking complicated questions about something they heard in school. They grow like weeds, their voices change, their interests shift, and they begin to ask the important question "Who am I?" Because there are so many changes taking place we belive at New Hope Students that Middle School Ministry is a VITAL time to present the gospel and help students begin to answer those tough questions. As your Middle-Schooler begins to ask these questions there will be a plethora of places that they explore to find answers and our mission is that as a Student Ministry we would help lead them into a growing relationship God through that process. Here at New Hope we believe that the best way to make this happen is through relationships with friends and most importantly, other Christian adults. Which is exactly why once your student steps foot into our building they join a small group that will stick together all throughout their Middle and High School life!


Thursdays 6:00-7:30

We are so excited to announce that our Student Ministry is meeting in-person and inside our building! With this transition back into our building we have made a few changes on how our weekly gatherings will look. Students will be required to wear a mask while they are inside during group (with the exception of when they are eating or drinking at their tables). We have utilized our space by distancing our “small group tables” which students will sit at during a majority of the night to limit contact with one another.
Finally, we taking extra precautions by sanitizing all areas of use and taking out any games or activities that may involve contact with others.

With these changes we hope to create both a safe and fun environment that gives students a chance to grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus and one another. If you have other questions about what group will look like inside our building we recommend you take a look at our “Covid-19 Guidelines below or contact Justin our Student Ministries Pastor.

                                CURRENT SERIES

This or That

This or That is a three-week series designed to help your kid break the cycle of comparison in their lives. In this phase, your middle schooler cares a lot about the way they’re perceived by others. Though they may not verbalize it, they’re comparing themselves to their peers, their siblings, the people they see on social media, and more. As a parent, the best thing you can do to respond to the mental comparison game they’re playing is affirm who they are and how God made them, reminding them that they don’t need to be anyone other than themselves.
