Hello from the FGS Middle School Team!

Parents, we believe the middle school years are crucial in the life of every child, and we want to do our best to partner with you through this season. One way we do that is by keeping you in the loop about all that is happening in our middle school ministry. In this newsletter, you will find a look at recent events, an update on what is currently happening on Sunday mornings, and some things to know in the coming weeks.

RECENT EVENTS

Small Group Dinner: This past month, one of our 8th grade boys small groups got together at Dallas Greenaway’s house for food and fellowship! We like to do these dinners with different middle school small groups once a month to continue to build relationships within our small groups.

Next Gen Baptism: Some of our middle schoolers got baptized in our Next Gen Baptism on Nov. 10th! We’re so proud of them for making their decision to follow Jesus a public decision, and celebrating along with their friends and family!

CURRENT SERIES

Unwrapped:  During the final two weeks of this semester we'll be talking about Christmas! Our series is called Unwrapped and we'll be focusing on the reality that God came to us, as Emmanuel, and now we have full access to him even 2000 years later. The final message before the break will focus on Jesus as our rest and be an encouragement to students to find real rest over their break. Make sure to help your student find rest over the break and consider what it looks like for your family to rest well together.

UPCOMING EVENTS

No Middle School on Dec. 22, and 29: Middle school will not meet on these Sundays due to the holiday weekends. Be safe traveling and enjoy time with family and friends!

United Christmas Night: Join the Fellowship Greenville Kids and Student Ministries on Sunday, December 8th from 5:30-8pm for our United Christmas Night. This is a Family Celebration Party! We would love all our families of our kids and students to come and celebrate Christmas as a community. Dress in your best/tackiest Christmas outfit. We will celebrate with fun games, food, Christmas songs, and great prizes. Please bring a dessert or snack to share! Hope you will join us!

DEFY Greenville- FGS Middle will be at DEFY Greenville (previously Gravitopia) January 15th from 6:00-7:30pm. Check in will start at 6pm and then we will have 6:30-7:30pm to jump. Cost is $10 per person (cost of socks included). Bring a friend and come jump with us!  

Believe Conference: The Believe CONTACT Conference will help students better understand the amazing gift of prayer and how God wants to use it in their lives. Prayer is powerful because God is powerful. Prayer is personal because God loves you. Pray anytime about anything because God is listening. Prayer is Kingdom work. The God of the universe is waiting...are you ready to make CONTACT? Join us for a weekend of fun, discipleship, and relationship building with other middle school students and leaders for this conference on March 13-14 in Atlanta, Georgia. Registration will open in January. 

Small Groups: As many of you know, small groups kicked off on September 15th. If you have yet to register your student for a small group or have questions about small groups, please reach out to Rachel Bailer, our Small Groups Coordinator, at rbailer@fellowshipgreenville.org.

PARENT RESOURCES

The Culture Translator

This is a weekly email from a group who focuses on helping parents navigate the changing culture and news that keeps coming at us at a rapid pace. Each Friday they send an email that takes five minutes to read but keys you in on three major culture/news happenings. A lot of us on staff have subscribed and have found it very insightful.

We hope this helps you stay in the cultural loop and gives you strategic ways to keep speaking into the life of your children! Thanks for being the awesome parents that you are!


If you ever have any questions about our ministry or about navigating life with a middle schooler, feel free to reach out to Dallas at dgreenaway@fellowshipgreenville.org.
