Middle School

In Calvary Middle School Ministry, we’re focused on helping students in grades 6–8 "live on mission." This means equipping students to live as authentic followers of Jesus Christ and impact the world by making Christ known – in their neighborhoods, school, community, and beyond.

Come grow with us! Invite friends to any of our programs or events. Connect and check out our latest pics on Facebook.

    STUDY WITH US: EPHESIANS
    Middle School Bible Study Series

    In this letter to the church in Ephesus, the Apostle Paul's aim was for believers to GROW in their knowledge of God and come to understand and live out His plan for their lives.

    Our theme passage for this study will be Ephesians 4:14–15: "So that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ."

    Parents and students, don’t miss the opportunity to review and discuss our ongoing study questions together!

    One in Christ (Ephesians 2:11–22)
    Questions for Week Five

    1. What is the name of our series?
    2. What are the three meanings of what it means to be alive in Christ?
    3. Why did Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross abolish the old way of sacrificing animals?
    4. Why do you think the Jews were upset with this? 
    5. How would you explain to a Jew the sacrifice of Jesus and why sacrificing animals is no longer necessary? 
    6. What did you learn new through tonight’s preaching? 
    7. What is something that is hard for you to understand about this passage? 
    8. How has your understanding of God’s purposes for His church changed? 
    9. Why is the church important to God? 
    10. Can you explain tonight’s overall teaching in one or two sentences?
