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 doughnuts, worship through singing, connect over games, and teach specifically for Jr. Highers. For Summer 2021, we will start outside with food, connecting time, and worship, before moving inside for teaching (masks optional).
Summer Small Groups | Sundays 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. | Jr. High Room | Our small groups are designed to help Jr. Highers study and apply the Bible within community. Over the summer we move to Sunday nights for additional time to have dinner, games, and fun, and then split into same gender small groups for Bible Study. This Summer we are looking at applying the Fruits of the Spirit in our lives.
Friday Night Live | Various Fridays | These events are designed to be fun environments where you could easily bring a friend. We have 4 awesome events planned for this Summer. See the calendar for details.
Special Events | First Fruits (Service project in November), Winter Retreat (President’s Day weekend), Summer Camp.
