Anchored in Faith (6th - 8th Grade)


Anchored in Faith (Grades 6th-8th) is a middle school youth ministry that leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and his Church.  Our goal is to strengthen the faith of middle schoolers so that in high school that can put their faith into action and give their yes (their FIAT) to the Lord.

Sessions offer middle school teens an enriching experience with their faith while growing in fellowship. We meet Wednesday evenings in the Hall from 6:00PM-7:30PM.
