Seasons come and seasons go! The season for the 5th graders to join the junior high ministry (a.k.a., "the middle") is around the corner, and we've prepared some special events to make the transition smooth.So, check out the information below.
The transition to the junior high ministry begins in March with SuperStart. This conference is a great opportunity for fifth graders to learn from some of the most influential Christian teachers, to connect with each other and their leaders, and to meet the Jr. High minister and some of the jr. high leaders.
