Connect

Connect is our Wednesday night middle school & high school ministry.  It is held in cooperation with Calvary OPC and First EPC of Cedar Grove, and takes place at First EPC (221 N. Main St.).  Connect gives students the opportunity to break away from their weekly routines to connect with God and each other.  It runs from 6:30-7:30PM, and students are encouraged to gather for fellowship at 6:15.  After fellowship, middle schoolers will gather for worship led by a live band, followed by a group activity.  Then, they will break up into smaller groups and cover a lesson that will help them apply God’s truth to their daily lives using a curriculum called “So What?”  Also, once per month at Connect, we will have a special event that will emphasize fellowship, service, outreach, etc. to help the students practice what what they’re learning.  All students grades 6-8 are welcome to join us!

 

Core

Core groups are small group Bible studies for middle and high school students.  They are held in cooperation with Calvary OPC and First EPC of Cedar Grove, and take place at Faith Reformed on Sunday nights from 6:00-7:00PM.  Core groups help students learn how to read the Bible on their own, which is a lifelong discipline at the core of Christian living.  Groups are also divided by age and gender, so they are critical in developing relationships with Christian peers who will help each other navigate through life together, as well as adult leaders that serve as mentors.

Sunday School

After the morning service each Sunday from 10:30-11:15, middle school students work through the Gospel Project curriculum, which teaches through the entire story of the Bible!

 

Silver Birch Retreat

Each year our Middle School students are invited to go on a retreat to Silver Birch Ranch in White Lake, WI. The retreat is sponsored by the Reformed Church in America’s Classis of Wisconsin.  We do all sorts of fun camping activities, sleep in cabins, ride horses, play group games, hang out in the canteen, and have lots of laughs together.  We also get together for large group times where we grow through messages taken from God’s word.  This year’s retreat is from October 19-21, 2018.
