The junior high ministry at Reston Bible Church, BreakThru, is a place where you will have fun and be cared about, encouraged, and radically challenged.
If you’re in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade, we would love for you to come join us. We will meet at 9:00 and 10:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings in the RBC Youth Building.
Our vision for BreakThru comes from Matthew 7:24-27, where Jesus says that anyone who Listens to His words and Acts upon them is like a man who Builds his house upon the rock. That house stands firm even when the winds and the rain come and slam against the house, because it has a solid foundation.
But just like laying the foundation for RBC’s new facility was hard work, laying a solid foundation in our lives is not an easy task. You have to cut down all the trees and brush. You have to dig down through the loose top soil. You have to BreakThru rocks and boulders in the way, until you can lay a level foundation on solid ground. In the same way, we want the Jr. Highers at RBC to Listen to the Word and begin to Act upon it, and in this process, Build a solid foundation for their lives on God’s Word and His Wisdom. We want Jr. High not only to be a time when teens are BreakingThru from a child to an adult, but also a time where they are BreakingThru in their understanding of God and application of His Word to their lives.
WHAT WE DO
BreakThru | Sundays at 10:45 a.m. | Jr. High Room | On Sundays we fellowship over donuts, worship through singing, connect over games, and teach specifically for Jr. Highers. Our goal is to clearly present the truths of God in a way understandable and relevant to Jr. Highers.
Small Groups | Wednesdays at RBC – 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. | Jr. High Room | Our small groups are designed to help Jr. Highers study and apply the Bible within community. We have snacks, games, and fun for the first hour, and split into same gender small groups for Bible study during the second hour. Small Groups resume September 1. A one-time registration is required available here.
