Our Programs

 SPARK (5TH AND 6TH GRADE)

Spark is where 5th and 6th grade students have their own space, lessons and activities specifically designed for their unique stage of life. That stage of life includes a lot of fun!

 IGNITION (7TH AND 8TH GRADE)

Ignition is what we call our Junior High programs at Aldersgate. Students in 7th and 8th grade are invited to join us for Bible studies, small group discussions, and large group teachings as well as many special events throughout the year.

 Hubs

We are using a system called “Hubs” as one of the primary ways to communicate and stay up to date with the Middle School program. “Hubs” will show you a calendar of upcoming Middle School events, give you access to announcements, permission slips, and other documents that we send throughout the year. It will also give you a place where you can stay in contact and ask any questions you may have. We had used Facebook in the past but ran into a few issues. One of those issues was that some parents did not have and did not want a Facebook account. To gain access to “Hubs,” reach out to Caleb, and he will send you an email invitation. Once you have that invitation and set up an account, you can click the “Hubs” button below to access the site. An app version of “Hubs” will be coming soon!
