Middle School Grades 7-8



 Lifeline is made up of two components, both a Middle School Ministry and a High School Youth ministry.

Lifeline Middle School is a Catholic middle school youth ministry experience created for youth in grades seven and eight. The program is designed to meet the educational, spiritual, emotional, and social needs of junior high youth.   The needs of these youth in a ministry program are quite different from children in Christian Formation and high school teenagers in Lifeline.  They are literally caught in the middle… as Church it is our responsibility to see to it that our middle school kids experience Christ in an exciting and dynamic program that challenges them and invites them to walk with Jesus, as well as being in tune with their unique needs.

Components of Lifeline Middle School Ministry:

Similar to the Lifeline High School Model there are four main components to the Middle School Ministry.

1.  The Holy Mass
The Eucharist is central to the faith of all Catholics. Especially Middle Schoolers. The goal is to provide a warm and welcoming environment for teens to experience the mystery of the Mass.

2.  Middle School Nights
A Parish that provides solid systematic catechesis during the middle school years lays a foundation for their high school formation and beyond.

3.  Service & Community Activities
Youth need to know that they can make a difference today.  Service activities and projects are an excellent way for youth to help others and build up the body of Christ.

4.  Parent Component
The parent component of Lifeline is designed to assist parents in raising their  middle schooler. Throughout the year various educational and spiritual sessions and opportunities will be provided to parents.
