Youth Ministry at MBIC

A safe community to engage, learn and grow.

        

5th-6th Grade Youth

Wednesday 6:30p | Sunday 9:00a | Warehouse

The bridge from elementary to middle school or kid min to youth min can be a challenge. One of our goals in the 56er's ministry at MBIC is to make this major transition in life easy. We desire to create a safe place for students to come and deepen their relationship with Jesus as the move through this stage in life. We want students to make their faith their own. We exist to disciple students into a sustainable, life-long faith. Learn more about 56ers at MBIC >

        

7th-8th Grade Youth

Wednesday 6:30p | Sunday 9:00a | Warehouse

At REMIX, we strive to share Christ's love with one another and encourage each other to live for Him. Whether a student knows little or much about Jesus Christ, we are here to help initiate and nurture that vital relationship. We hope 7th and 8th graders will find REMIX to be a welcoming place where they experience meaningful friendships, fun and a growing faith.  Learn more about REMIX at MBIC >
