Middle School Ministry


Axis is our Middle School faith formation ministry. We meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30pm – 8:00pm, October through April.

The mission of Axis is to support kids and their families in their relationship with Jesus, walk alongside them as they find the presence of God in their own life, and affirm the baptismal promises.

What We Do

We spend our time together exploring and practicing the basics of what it means to be God’s faithful people. We look at the stories of God’s relationship with His people in the Bible to find ourselves in them and discover our identity in Christ as children of God. We go deeper into our Lutheran faith tradition and seek to find out what being “saved by grace through faith” means in our lives. We put our faith into action by serving throughout our community and within our congregation. A key element of this faith formation ministry is equipping families with ideas and practices to connect faith to everyday life. All of this takes place in both large group and small group settings, family nights, and one-on-one mentoring.
