Middle School

What to Expect




Have some questions about Local Students for Middle Schoolers? These may help you!

Middle School services are held at two different times on Sundays, 9:00 & 11:00 a.m.

When students arrive, they should stop by our Student check-in desk in the lobby. This allows us to greet and get to know them.

Before the service starts, students can enjoy pre-service fun and hangout time. This includes outdoor games, video and card games, as well as the opportunity to socialize with friends and get to know others.

We recommend that parents and students have a plan for reconnection after the service. Parents can either come to the Student Room to pick up their students, or they may decide to meet inside the church lobby or at a courtyard for a convenient and seamless reunion.

Have some questions about Local Students for High Schoolers? These may help you!

High School services are held at 4:30 p.m., and doors open at 4:00 p.m.

Before the service starts, students can enjoy pre-service fun and hangout time. This includes outdoor games on the turf, shooting hoops on the outdoor basketball court, or being inside with video and card games. There are also plenty of couches and tables to hang out and socialize with friends and leaders.

Dismissal begins at 5:45 p.m., but leaders and students are also welcome to hang out after service. We encourage parents and students to have a pick-up plan and ask that all students be picked up by 6:15 p.m.. You could text your student when you arrive, or they could meet you at our drop-off zone in the parking lot.
