Hey Parents,


I wanted to reach out and update you on our plans for the rest of the semester regarding our student ministry. We have decided that our last week of Break Away services this semester was Wednesday, November 18th, the week prior to Thanksgiving. 

While our weekly programming will stop for a bit, we will still be having a Break Away Christmas party on December 16th starting at 6pm!  This semester has been different, but it has also been so encouraging to see how God has been moving in the lives of each of our students. While this is an extended break we are already looking forward to next semester as Break Away Programming will resume on Wednesday,    January 6th!

We hope that you will enjoy the holiday season and can't wait to have our students back at Break Away!


Wednesday evenings

Middle School: 6pm-7:15pm

High School: 7:15pm-8:30pm

Here are a few ways to stay connected!

Jesus is Our Message


The purpose of the student ministry of Leclaire is to share the hope of Jesus.  Everything that we do revolves around Jesus, Jesus is at the center of everything that we do.  Methods and programs will come and go but the message will always be the same, Jesus.


People Are Our Purpose


Our heart is for ALL people, not just believers.  We want to reach those who are far from God, we desire to reach the broken.


Friendship is Our Passion


All throughout the Bible, God has shown us the importance of friendships.  We desire and encourage our students to form lasting and genuine relationships with each other.  We want our students to speak into each other’s lives and encourage each other in all walks of life.


Serving is Our Calling


We want to be a youth group that is known for its actions and not just words.  Jesus served us by His death on the cross and we serve others by giving them the gospel and our lives to them.  The greatest things we will do in life will not actually be something we do but will be the people we serve.




Student Bible Study – Sundays at 9am in the Youth Room and Classroom A (Postponed)

Middle school students meet in the youth room while high school meets in Classroom A, both meet during the 9:00am service.  This atmosphere is for teens to be part of an on-going bible study class. Some of the lessons are topical, some are studies through books of the Bible.  We desire not only to study the Word together, but also to teach students how to study, understand, and live it for themselves.

Break Away - Wednesday Evenings

Middle School 6:00-7:15pm

High School 7:15-8:30pm  


Break Away is our dynamic worship service geared specifically for 6th-12th students.  At Break Away they connect with God, friends, and amazing adult leaders that are pointing them to Christ!  Students will participate in large group games, worship through song, learn from dynamic teachers, and build relationships through Small Group discussions. Our hope is that students would know that they are loved by Jesus and to be transformed by Him.

Events and Trips

Throughout the year there are various trips and events that the student ministry will have.  These include CIY for both middle school and high school, game nights, Bond Christian Service Camp,

service projects, etc.
