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. Break Away meets at the following times during the school year:
High School Students: Wednesday Nights 7-8:30 PM
Middle School Students: Sunday Nights 6-7:30 PM
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 9 AM in the Youth Room
Middle school and high school students meet in the Youth Room, both meet during the 9am 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.
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.

PARENTS: Our current series is titled EVEN IF. Here is an overview and some ways that you can potentially engage with your children as we go through this series.
EVEN IF SERIES GUIDE:
No matter what our feelings on change, to some extent, change is hard for everyone. Even good change disrupts our worlds. Which is why, in a world where it feels like everything changes, it’s important to center ourselves around the One who never changes. In this series, we’ll unpack how even if change is challenging, there is a way through it, counting on the One whose love and commitment to us never changes.
