Note: In the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, next-gen ministries (Preschool, Children, Middle School, and High School) will not be meeting for separate worship services or life groups. We expect to resume next-gen worship and life group meetings this Fall. 

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.

The middle school ministry of 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 and Wednesday evenings. This is a fun and engaging space for students to meet with friends and leaders before services begin and enthusiastically worship once we get started. 


Middle Schoolers meet from 9:15 to 10:15 AM on Sunday mornings. This time is designed to be an interactive experience for students. The main teaching responsibility is shared among staff and leaders and students are encouraged to add to the conversation as much as possible. We are walking 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 then attend worship with their entire family during the 10:45 hour. We would love to see your middle schooler and welcome them to the conversation this Sunday. 


At 6:00 every Wednesday night during the school year The District fills up with students but the excitement begins to build long before that. Middle Schoolers participate in worship and hear biblical teaching during this hour. It is the highlight of our week in Middle School ministry and great care is taken to ensure students hear the gospel each and every week and are challenged to go out and tell others what they have heard. We would love to have your student worship with us!


We encourage middle school students to engage others by serving in local mission projects and short term mission trips. We take great pride in the fact that many of our members equipped each year to share the gospel are middle school students. Engaging others by serving with compassion is one of the main ways we seek to open the door to share the real hope of the gospel. Check the events page for the next service opportunity.
