What is J.A.M.?

 

J.A.M. activities are for middle school students in 7th and 8th grades. A typical gathering incorporates three things: Bible study, fellowship, and small groups. This ministry builds peer relationships and motivates students to develop their life-long relationship with Jesus Christ. J.A.M. events typically occur on Friday nights.

Our goal is for students to be:
     1. Aware of their identity as a redeemed Child of God;
     2. Equipped to fully participate in the life of the community of faith.
 
Through the J.A.M. program, students will…
  • Build upon the goals of LOL ROCK (Ministry for students in 5th and 6th grades);
  • Learn to dialogue with each other and adult mentors about faith issues and topics;
  • Develop a positive self-image as creations of God;
  • Establish a firm foundation in Christian basics;
  • Expand ownership of their faith.
Parents of students in the J.A.M. program will become...
  • Motivated to demonstrate commitment to serving God and ownership of faith through active engagement in student ministry;
  • Eager participants, transforming their “fear of teens” into loving and meaningful relationships;
  • Confident in their ability to engage their child in faith conversations.
Parent Volunteers in the J.A.M. program will…
