    2016-2017 Powerhouse Groups

    Location: Local Homes
    Start Time: Tue 6, Sept. 2016, 7 p.m.
    End Time: Tue 6, June 2017, 9 p.m.

    Powerhouse Groups are designed to give middle school students an opportunity to grow in their relationships with both God and their peers. Together with an adult leader, students will explore the Bible and talk about how it applies to everyday life. Each group will have a slightly different feel, but all of them will include Bible study, discussion, prayer, relationship-building, and accountability.

    The groups meet on the first Tuesday of the month at a local home from September through June. Groups are split according to grade and gender. Locations and leaders can be found on our Small Groups page.

    Every student must register for a Powerhouse group (regardless if you participated last year!). Cost is $10 to cover the materials for the year.
