The purpose of Midway Youth Ministries (MYM) is to expose students to the gospel of Jesus Christ, equip students with the understanding of the Lordship of Christ over all of life, and to exhort them to think Biblically and critically in their journey towards adulthood. All by the Grace of God. All for the Glory of God.
Sunday School – 9:45 am
Every Sunday, our Middle School and High School students gather in their separate rooms for instruction that is Bible-centered and Christ-exalting. We cover several different topics throughout the year that are age appropriate to the youth we serve. Our High School Sunday School class meets in the Youth Assembly Room and our Middle School class meets in the Children’s Assembly Room.
Each week we have boys and girls Bible studies that meet to further disciple our youth. The time and location of these studies can be found in the church bulletin or by emailing Pastor Joel Smit; Joel.Smit@MidwayPCA.org.
Wednesday Night – 7:00 pm
On Wednesday Nights we gather together for a time of fellowship, worship through music, and teaching. We seek to teach through entire books of the bible, in order to learn more about our triune God, and our duty to Him.
