About Middle School

Breakaway is the place to get plugged in to everything that’s happening for middle school students! Our main goal is to have fun while learning about the love of Christ.

Breakaway meets every Wednesday night from 7 – 8:30 pm in The PLEX. Our times together are filled with hanging out, crazy games, worship, and great topical discussions from the Bible. This is a great place to connect with other middle school students.

On Sundays we meet from 10:45 am – noon in The PLEX. This is an incredible time of getting into God’s Word and finding out who God wants you to be as a middle schooler. It’s a smaller group than Wednesday, but what it has to offer is HUGE! We’ve got an amazing staff who truly care about students. I am always available to speak with parents and students regarding any questions or situations you’re dealing with. Come check it out — I can’t wait to meet your students!
