Welcome to our Junior High Ministry website. If you are a student in grades 7-9 or the parent of a student in grades 7-9, welcome. Come take a look and see what we have to offer here at McKernan Baptist Student Ministries.
FIT (Grades 7-9)
FIT is an acronym for Fun, Identity, and Truth. We want to be the place where your children entering their teen years can have a fun, crazy, great time; we want to be the place where they begin to discover their own identity and how God has uniquely created and gifted them; and we want to be the place where they discover for themselves the truth about God and a real relationship with Jesus.
This is our Wednesday night worship, teaching, and small group time. It is the place where students get to discover their faith on their own and make it real, understandable, and practical in their lives.
These events are designed to fill up the fun and adventure component for the students. Once a month on Fridays from 7:00-9:30 pm we’re all about creating fun, energetic and awesome times for your student and their friends. Generally we meet in the Youth Room or move out from there. Last year students enjoyed Pirates vs Jedi's Night, a giant games night, and a Sumo Suit night. FIT Fridays are great for students to get to know others and to invite their friends to. Generally we will keep any costs down to under $5 per event if there is a cost. If there is ever any problem with making that work, please let us know because we can always make alternative arrangements.
Meeting on the last Friday night of the month from 7:00 - 9:30 pm
Girls ONLY began out of a hearts desire to see girls grab hold of the fun, truth, complexity and purpose in being a faith-filled girl. We usually meet in a home and do some type of fun or creative girl-friendly activity that encourages them to appreciate and enjoy being a girl. This past year they enjoyed serving at Ronald McDonald House, movie night at Sarah's, & a Father/Daughter Date Night!
Guys ONLY seeks to pull guys together to have some type of bonding adventure together and share what it means to become a godly guy. This past year they had crazy activities like Workout Night, swimming and White Cross night.
