Middle School Ministry
About Big Dog
Our mission is to come alongside parents in shepherding their children. We desire to see each student come to know and love Christ, be transformed through the power of the Gospel, and have a worldview shaped by the Scriptures.
It is our great privilege to work alongside parents to foster a love of Christ in students' lives, and to lead them toward becoming faithful Christian disciples who make other disciples.
Ways To Get Involved
Join us Sunday mornings at 9:00am in Room 205 for a time of prayer, Bible study, and fellowship. We use The Gospel Project as our curriculum.
We love Sunday nights at Big Dog. Our group meets in the Fellowship Hall from 6:00-8:00pm during the school year. We play games, worship together, and have a message for the large group. After the message, we split into our breakout groups to discuss & apply the passage to our lives and pray for one another. We typically will share a snack together and also play some 9-square at the end of group.
We have special events throughout the year to allow our students time to fellowship together, dig deep into God’s Word together, and serve together. These events include scavenger hunts, hikes, bonfires, movie nights, a missions weekend, and the Blount County Student Conference.
8th Grade Guys/Girls Discipleship Groups
Both of these groups cover a variety of topics to help our students grow in wisdom, and help them apply the truths of the Bible in their everyday lives.
The Guys Discipleship Group meets on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 12:30-2:00pm in the upstairs Hospitality Room. This group is for 8th-12th grade boys.
The Girls Discipleship Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, from 1:00-2:30pm at Katherine Bowerman’s House (1208 Lenore Ln.). This group is for 8th-12th grade girls.
