In response to the rising cases of COVID-19 in middle Tennessee and in our specific community all on-campus Sunday morning groups were previously suspended. Beginning March 21, 2021, on-campus programming will resume with groups meeting at 8:00, 9:00, and 10:30 am as well as worship services at 9:00 and 10:30 am. This will include preschool and children's programming at 9:00 and 10:30 am also. For more information on weekend worship visit here

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 at 10:30am. This is a fun and engaging space for students to meet with friends and leaders before services begin and engage in study together once we get started. 


When student services resume, Middle Schoolers will meet from 10:30 - 11:30 AM on Sunday mornings. This time is designed to be an interactive experience for students. The main teaching responsibility is shared among staff and small group 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 after attending worship with their entire family during the 9:00 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 we host an on-campus bible study for Middle School students. Middle Schoolers participate in discussion together as we ask 7 crucial questions of each piece of scripture we explore together. It is a 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!

With the ongoing COVID-19 situation, in the interest of student safety, this bible study is currently being held outdoors near the student building. Students meet from 3:30 - 5:00 pm.


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.
