Middle School Youth
At IMPACT Christ wins over the hearts of the youth, builds them in faith and sends them into the world to move forward on the pathway towards becoming missionary disciples. To that end, IMPACT has “4” components:
Belong | The first night of each traditional 6-night IMPACT session will offer an opportunity for fellowship, fun and a real sense of belonging. Seasonal events will also be offered to grow genuine friendships and adventures in Christ, like summer Guppy Gulch, fall Flannel Fest, winter snow tubing, and a spring bonfire.
Believe | Each middle schooler will participate in one half-day retreat, hosted here at OLPH and facilitated by NET Ministries, to give them an extended opportunity to encounter Jesus, experience his love in a personal way, and respond in their heart.
Become | Through our traditional IMPACT sessions each middle schooler takes 2, 6-night topic sessions, offered on Sundays throughout the school year. Our topics this coming year are Discipleship and Morality. Each participant will take one full session (6 nights) of each topic.
Beyond | The middle school youth will go beyond and take their love of Christ out into the world around them by completing two service projects. The first project will be completed together at the end of the Discipleship IMPACT session. The other will be completed with their families.
