EON is our middle school ministry (6th-8th grade). An EON is “an indefinite/immeasurably long period of time, or 1 billion years.” At EON, we strive to meet students in a difficult phase, and promote an eternal identity; their identity in Christ.
We have a time for students to play games and have fellowship with each other and the leaders. We have a time of worship which is followed by Bible-based teaching. A majority of our time is spent in LifeGroups where students will get an opportunity to share about their weeks, discuss the lesson together, and pray for each other.
For many students, the question asked is, “Who am I right now?”, rather than, “Who am I going to be for EON”? Peers, media, and culture bombard them every day, telling them who they are, and who they should be. This can lead to drastic, rushed, and short-sighted decisions that can affect the rest of their lives. We walk side by side with students, overcoming the short-term chaos with eternal peace.
We believe that students want to be known and be heard. We spend the majority of our time in EON in a small group setting where students will split up by gender and grade level. We begin our LifeGroups asking about their weeks and give every student the opportunity to share. There will be at least 2 leaders who will facilitate the flow of the group. LifeGroups is a huge deal because people can get lost in a big crowd setting and this will give the students an opportunity to build peer to peer relationships.
We are using the Bible Project videos during the weekend for our content. We are currently going through the Torah series and these videos visually teach us about the Bible. After the video plays, we have a leader go up and they teach on a different theme each week based on the video. Our hope is that the combination of the videos and teaching will effectively impact the kids.
