Middle School

In Calvary Middle School Ministry, we’re focused on helping students in grades 6–8 "live on mission." This means equipping students to live as authentic followers of Jesus Christ and impact the world by making Christ known – in their neighborhoods, school, community, and beyond.

Come grow with us! Invite friends to any of our programs or events. Connect and check out our latest pics on Facebook.

    Middle School Bible Study Series

    In this letter to the church in Ephesus, the Apostle Paul's aim was for believers to GROW in their knowledge of God and come to understand and live out His plan for their lives.

    Our theme passage for this study will be Ephesians 4:14–15: "So that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ."

    Parents and students, don’t miss the opportunity to review and discuss our weekly study questions together!

    For Week 1— Introduction to Ephesians 1:1-2

    1. Where can you find the book of Ephesians?
    2. Who wrote Ephesians?
    3. Where was Paul when he wrote the letter?
    4. What year did Paul write it?
    5. What does God’s grace mean? Can you give an example in your own life?
    6. How does God's grace impact the way you live?
    7. How can you have peace with God?
