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 Small Groups are a great opportunity for students (6th – 12th grade) to connect around the Word of God. Over the summer, we’ll continue to meet on Wednesdays from 7-8:30 pm in the Rock Gym for games and a group scripture study. Each week will start with a brief lesson on how to study the Bible, then students will have a chance to study the passage on their own before discussing it at tables with their small groups and hearing from a large group speaker. We want our students to experience profound belonging at Midweek as they build friendships, pray, and study the Bible together.

Sunday Communities

We invite our middle school students to join us this Summer 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 Summer 2022 semester week-to-week schedule here.

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.
