Middle School Sunday Night
Sundays from 5PM-6:30PM
Middle School Impact is an environment for student’s 6th-8th grade to enjoy one another and learn to hope in Jesus. This service is carefully crafted with the specific needs of a middle schooler in mind. Each evening begins with a fun group game which typically takes place outside on our basketball court. After the game, we move inside for a time of engaging music and dynamic teaching. The goal of this service is to help students engage God through music and know him better through teaching.
High School Mid-Week
Wednesdays from 6:45PM-7:45PM
High School Mid-Week provides students 9th-12th a time of refueling during the midst of what is commonly a chaotic week. Mid-Week is an opportunity for students to encourage one another (Hebrews 10:24-25) and be encouraged by the good new of the gospel. After a time of extended fellowship, students will gather together in our student worship center for a gospel-centered service. Not only do we hope to refuel students through this service, but it is designed to create an opportunity for students to invite their friends.
Missions is a mindset! “For the gospel. For the city.” is the vision of our church. We aim to support that vision and transform our students into being missional thinkers whether in Macon, Georgia or on the other side of the world. The student ministry makes an annual, short-term, summer mission trip to Rabun Gap, Rabun County, in north Georgia where we partner with local churches there to lead Bible schools at apartment complexes, campgrounds, and other local churches. Additionally, there are other local, national, and global mission opportunities.
We believe that who you are is directly influenced by who you are around. At Northway Student Ministry, we use small groups divided by grade and gender to help students develop real friendships and find encouragement and accountability. Fe Groups meet during The Forum, Impact, and (Wednesday Night HS Service). A typical group has between 8-15 students with 2-4 adult leaders. We strive to keep the same students together from 6th grade through end of their time in Northway Student Ministry. This way they grow together, get comfortable with each other, and learn to do life as a team. Our groups are always looking to welcome new faces and make sure everyone feels welcomed and wanted. The name Fe is derived from the scientific classification for iron. Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” It’s our goal for our students to be sharpened spiritually by each other and by the leaders in NSM.
The Forum takes place Sunday mornings during the 9:00 AM service for middle school and the 10:30 AM service for high school.
Students will join together at the beginning of the hour for announcements and a brief introduction of the big idea before splitting up into small groups by grade and gender for an in-depth discussion. The Forum is motivated by discipleship and aims to foster relationships amongst students and leaders while teaching them how to study the bible inductively and think through fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith.
