Program Information:

All students in grades 6 and 7 are invited to join the Middle School Youth Group on Sunday evenings from 6-7:30pm in the Holy Family Center.

Our Middle School Youth Group is designed to bring youth into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ through a small group format. Using Edge from Life Teen, each week we will explore different aspects of our Roman Catholic Faith while following the current curriculum guidelines from the Diocese of Grand Rapids. Our weekly focus will cover a wide range of topics including the Eucharist, Scripture, the Sacraments, being a disciple of Jesus, the Saints, current social issues, and more. Each night youth group night will include prayer, interactive and engaging games and activities, a talk, small group discussion, and time to grow together in fellowship.

If your middle school youth is in 8th Grade and is planning Confirmation, please see the “Confirmation” section in the Sacramental page.
