We exist as a student ministry to partner with families in the proper discipleship of their children who will, in turn, make disciples wherever God may lead them.

Middle School Ministry at The Glade Church enjoys some of the most fantastic volunteer leadership around. Our staff and volunteers work hard to make sure each student finds themselves at home and has an opportunity to encounter Jesus. 

Middle Schoolers meet in "The District" on Sunday mornings at 9 AM and Wednesday evenings at 6 pm. This is a fun and engaging space for students to hang with friends and leaders. 


On Sunday morning, Middle Schoolers meet from 9-10:15 AM on Sunday mornings.  Students hang out in The District and connect with other students and leaders.  While in The District, there is a brief welcome and announcement time.  Students are then released to their Sunday School classes for the remainder of the time.  The Sunday School classes are broken up by age/gender.  While in their Sunday School classes, students are walked through The Gospel Project and exploring the overarching story of scripture and how all of the Bible points to Jesus. Many parents attend a Life Group during this hour and reconnect with their student(s) during the 10:30 AM corporate worship hour. During the 10:30 AM corporate worship hours, somestudents sit with there families while others sit in the front certer of the worship room as a group.  We would love to see your middle schooler and welcome them to the conversation this Sunday. 


At 6:00 PM every Wednesday night during the school year, we host an on-campus worship service for Middle School students. The evening kicks off with hang out time until 6:30, with games set up outside.  At 6:30 students make their way into The District for a worshipservice geared towards them.  The service wrapps up at 7:30 and students are free to hang out until they are picked up by their parents.  We would love to have your student worship with us!


As listed above, on Sundays and Wednesdays, Middle School Ministry gathers in The District. Please, fill out our first-time guest card and we’ll introduce your student(s) to others in their grade.

If you have any question or would like to plan a visit with us on either a Sunday or a Wednesday, please email our MIddle School Director David Watkins, and he will reach out to you to ensure your student has the best experience possible.

Student Ministry at The Glade Church is here to aid families in the proper discipleship of their students, equipping them to share the Gospel wherever the Lord leads them.
