Middle School Events – great weekends in every way!
Adventure. Service. Worship. New friends. Fun. A Middle School Event is all these and more. Kids in grades 6-8 from all over Maine get together for a time of games, new friendships, and to reach outside of themselves. They come from Episcopal churches all over the Diocese – and lots of their friends come, too.
REACH: Reaching In, Reaching Out, Reaching God
NEW: a ONE-NIGHT event!
March 9-10, 2018 at Christ Church Episcopal in Gardiner
For Middle Schoolers in 6-8 Grade
We will reach inside ourselves to understand who we are right now, reach out to our community to help other people live out who they are, and reach to God through song and worship to find who we are called to be. Kids in grades 6-8 are invited to spend the weekend playing games, doing a service project, making friends, eating awesome food, and worshiping God together.
