Middle School (Grades 6-8) & High School (Grades 9-12)

Life as a teen in Northern Virginia comes with many challenges. You are not in it alone! Our youth ministry (grades 6-12) is a place for students to make friends, grow spiritually, and impact the lives of others. We gather weekly in small and large groups to experience the good news of Jesus in real and relevant ways.

We strive to connect students with God, our leaders, and each other in an environment where we can have fun, wrestle with difficult questions through God’s Word, and be real with each other. We long for students to make a difference in their spheres of influence and to reach the nations for Jesus.

Midweek

Midweek Small Groups are the heartbeat of our ministry and a great opportunity for students (6th – 12th grade) to connect around the Word of God. We meet on Wednesdays from 7-8:30 pm in the Rock Gym. For the first thirty minutes we play games and hangout or have worship together. During this time, pizza is available for $1 a slice. Then, we all head into grade and gender specific small groups lead by teams of staff and volunteers. We pray that our students experience profound belonging at Midweek as they build friendships, pray, and study the Bible together.

MIDDLE SCHOOL SUNDAY COMMUNITIES

We invite our middle school students to join us for Sunday Community at 11am in the Rock Gym. Rock Communities are 3–4-week topical Bible study bursts designed to engage relevant issues with the Word of God through teaching and discussion. You can access our Fall 2022 semester week-to-week schedule to see which dates we meet.

Summer and Winter Camp

At camp, students get away from all the distractions of life in the DMV and spend a few days living the life God designed for them—worshipping the Lord, studying His word, and spending time with His people. While away, students have the chance to make and build deep friendships while participating in tons of fun adventures, competitions, and activities. Year after year, we’ve seen God change students’ lives and eternities through camp.

Below are our camp dates for 2023.

None Like Him
Sundays Dec 4 - Dec 18 from 6:30-8:30 pm | Rock Lounge

“None Like Him” is a three week Bible study for high school girls about God. It is based on a book of the same name by author and Bible teacher Jen Wilkin, and explores some of the ways that God is different from us (and why that’s a good thing!). We’ll discuss many of God’s attributes, but we’ll spend most of our time focusing on his Limitlessness, Incomprehensibility, Omnipotence, Omniscience, Omnipresence, and Immutability–these are big words with even bigger implications for our lives, and we are so excited to unpack them together. Our prayer is that the high school ladies who join us would walk away with a greater understanding of who God is and who they are in light of Him.
