Welcome to Middle School Ministries, programs for students 6th-8th grade!

We believe middle school is one of the most incredible and important times of a student’s life. It’s a unique privilege to be able to walk alongside them, and see the incredible growth that happens during this time. Our desire for your student is to learn about God, his love for them, his heart, and his passion for their lives. We also crave that they will learn about the community Christ calls us to: a community of fun and family that lasts them through high school and hopefully a lifetime. We hope that they will grow with those friendships, learn alongside each other, and deepen their spiritual walks together. Overall we pray our middle school ministry is a home for our families to know their kids are being loved, cared for and filled with a passion for Jesus.

Community Center

Come work with hundreds of BelPres friends to pack nutritious meals for our brothers and sisters in Mokpangumba, Sierra Leone.  Ages 3 to 103 are welcome to join teams filling bags with meal ingredients, sealing bags, packing boxes, and making new friends.  Preschoolers serve their teams as runners and decorate shipping boxes!  People with special needs are welcome and needed as part of our teams! Click here to see the fun we had last year!

The Meal Packing Marathon is made possible through our partnership with Children of the Nations.  This organization ships and distributes our meals through their programs for children in Sierra Leone.

Sundays

Middle 2

Worship | 10:45am-12:15pm | Community Center

Worship together during our 11am modern worship service. Come early, visit with friends, play games as a family, or chill with our leaders.

Wednesdays

Wednesdays, 7-8:30pm in UC-105/6

Meets every Wednesday. Have crazy fun, encounter God, and build friendships with others.

Service Weekends

Student Ministries will begin service weekends this fall, on both Saturday and Sunday of the second weekend of the month. We believe that service within BelPres and in our local community can help us get to know our church family, gain insight into the community beyond ourselves, and see how God is working in the lives of all of us. Serving is worshipping God and can be fun! On Saturdays we will be going outside of the church and into our community and serving at different organizations, with families invited to come along with us as well! Sundays are about serving our own church family in partnership with the Host team for the morning church services.
