What to Expect

 

We must be clear on one thing: while we want to give you a quick idea of what a “typical” Friday night looks like, no two Friday nights are the same. There are always new games, new laughs, and new adventures. Yet, there are certain things that you can expect to find on most Friday nights…a time of prayer, a brief message centered on God’s Word, a game or activity, AND lots of laughter.

 

Once a month (or thereabouts) we go “off-campus” for an outing. Past outings have included snow tubing, trips to Dorney Park and Camp Shiloh (can you say zip-line?!?), mini-golfing, and concerts. We’ve also been involved with different service projects in the area. As you can probably imagine, the Junior Highers look forward to the different outings we go on, as do we!!

 

As the Junior High Leaders, we want you to know that we look forward to Friday nights. Spending time with middle schoolers is a blessing for us, and it is our genuine desire to help foster an environment where hard questions can be asked and real-life struggles can be addressed. Our hope is that Friday nights will be a time that you, too, look forward to attending each week. We hope that Friday nights will be both fun for you and a time to grow in your understanding of who God is and what He has done for you!
