Route 78 is our ministry for our 7th and 8th graders that meets during our Sunday AM service.
Seventh and eighth graders are a unique bunch and they need to be reached using unique strategies. Many educational experts call this demographic “tweeners” because they are “in-between” 2 important and distinctively different stages of life and adolescent development. They are too young to drive a car or have a job yet they are exposed to the real life pressures of school, peer pressure and the struggle to fit in. For these reasons we have created a space specifically for 7th and 8th grade students called “Route 78”. We want to help students in this age group find their way and connect them to a real life-giving relationship with God.
We want middle school students to LOVE coming to church where they feel safe, secure and included. We have designed our messages to be up-beat, fun and relatable to middle school students. In a world lacking in quality role models, our teachers understand the value in developing trusting, long term relationships and are enthusiastic about reaching middle school students!
The temptation to compare is as near as your next chat with a friend, trip to the store, or check-in on social media. And whether you come out on top or come up lacking, there is simply no win in comparison. It s a trap. The Comparison Trap Devotional provides easy access to watch, read, and draw your way through this topic.
