To BEST help our families, we desire for YOU to be in the KNOW with information to help students and parents make this transition into Middle School Ministry. You have the opportunity to be the BEST influence for families. This document is meant to give you details and information.

We recognize the transition from 5th to 6th grade is very similar to riding a ROLLERCOASTER. It could look scary, the line is long,  and has TOO many loops. As a leader, how you communicate your belief will help to ease tensions and fears for what lies ahead. Will you help be an ENCOURAGER to students and parents?

We have prepared information for parents as well, you can direct them to
