Middle School Ministry (6-8th grade)
Wednesdays, September 18, 2019 - May 13, 2020
During Hosanna Church’s Middle School Ministry, students are given an opportunity to embrace the faith through small groups, Jesus-centered teaching, engaging worship, serving opportunities, and prayer ministry. According to our vision, Confirmation is an optional milestone that marks the transition from embracing the faith to living the faith. Click here to view the 2019-2020 programming calendar.

We will challenge students to embrace the Faith and make it their own by covering relevant topics and key pieces of what it looks like to be a follower of Jesus today. Teaching topics
Key Mile Markers on a student’s journey towards Embracing the Faith include:
- 7th and 8th Grade Retreats
- Small Groups
Small Groups are a key component of Middle School Ministry and consist of 10 or more students of the same grade and gender and two Small Group Leaders. Returning students will be placed in the same small group as previous years unless otherwise requested.
Small groups create a safe place for students to discuss questions about God while encouraging each other in their faith journey. To allow for the rapid growth Student Ministries is experiencing, when students reach 10 per group, sub-groups will be formed for small group discussion time. In this way, students can enjoy being part of their larger group but continue to invite friends and have more chances for meaningful small group discussions.
Retreats are a milestone for students in grades 7 through 12 as they embrace and live the faith. When you register for Middle School or High School Ministry, the registration for an annual retreat is included. Retreats are typically a highlight for students, a pivotal moment for many in their relationship with Jesus, and a unique opportunity to unplug from their everyday routine. This helps build relationships in the small group and fosters more meaningful discussions on regular programming nights.
Guests are always welcome. If your guest is interested, the staff will encourage them to register to be officially placed in a small group. Small groups are central to the Middle School Ministry experience and new students are able to join a small group anytime throughout the year.
