Welcome to IGNITE Jr. High Ministry (7th and 8th grade)!
Hello, my name is Meagan Bergem, Director of Jr. High School Ministry at FPC.
Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus who IGNITE their faith to pursue deeper relationship with Him and fully surrender their lives to worship God.
“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us give thanks, by which we offer to God an acceptable worship with reverence and awe; for indeed our God is a CONSUMING FIRE.” (Heb. 12:28-29)
As a part of a Great Commission Church, Jr. High Ministry’s desire is to equip students in Basic Bible and Discipleship. Helping students build a solid foundation of understanding the Bible and how to discern what truth is in their daily lives. We value being others focused and challenge the youth towards Outreach and Evangelism. It is our prayer that students will grow in their relationship with Jesus and Surrender their whole life to God. Our hope is Jr. High IGNITE is a safe place to belong, be known and ultimately realize you are fully loved by God.
Equipping and supporting Jr. High parents is important to us. We know the impact of our ministry would be greatly limited without partnering with parents. Parents are the primary influencers of their children (even teenagers!!). We desire to come alongside parents in caring not only for their child but their whole family.
During the school year, we meet in Room 102 from 6:30pm-8:00pm on Wednesday evenings. Walk with Jesus is our theme focusing on 1 Thess. 5:16-18: "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."Wednesday evenings consist of connecting with each other, playing a game, celebrating birthdays once a month, worshiping by singing, and an interactive Bible Study where we dive deep into God’s word not to just learn cool things -which happens- but to be changed and made new through God’s Spirit.
We meet in Room 102 from 9:40am-10:45am. Look out for the room with couches and music jamming. D-Groups begin Sept. 10th, we are open to new people joining us! The first Sunday of the month is a time of food and fellowship where a few students share testimonies of what God is doing in their lives. The following Sundays we meet in D-Groups where we seek to intentionally grow deeper in relationship with Jesus as his disciples in a wholistic approach- spiritual, mental, physical, social and sexual. We desire IGNITE to be a safe place for students to ask hard questions and wade through the messiness of life with the hope and truth of Jesus.
