Middle school faith formation offers opportunities to foster personal relationships with Jesus Christ in ways that best relate to 5th-8th grade youth. This ministry is relational in nature, as teens are beginning to understand, question, and take ownership of their faith. There are a variety of activities available for participation, including: faith formation, retreats, social events, & First Priority at their school. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to Makenzie (7th & 8th Confirmation prep) or Sophie (5th & 6th).

Faith Formation Adult Volunteer

Adult volunteers attend faith formation on a regular basis and can help in various ways. The most common role is that of a small group leader. Small group leaders are assigned to a group of students and facilitate conversation about the topic of the night. Small group leaders are also asked to build meaningful, Christ centered relationships and invest in the lives of the middle schoolers. Other ways adult volunteers can help is by assisting with check-in, arranging and setting up snacks, and lending an extra hand during social activities and events.

Here are some highlights from our Faith Formation events this year.
