What is Faith 101?
The goal of Faith 101 is to help middle school students identify with the life and mission of the church into which God has called them.
Through our Wednesday night meetings, retreats and related projects, we delve into what Scripture says about God and us.
Faith 101 is not about classes, but about discipleship. Our goal is that all components work together so that kids know God and the love He showed to them in Jesus.
