MIX is a five-day camp event specifically designed for students going into the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades that will engage middle school students through tactile, interactive, and fun activities coupled with Bible-based teaching and small group interaction. MIX will be taking place at Country Lake Christian Retreat during the month of June.


Middle School Ministry is excited about our continued partnership with Christ In Youth for our 2019 summer camp. This is the same ministry that leads the Believe conference we attend each winter. CIY MIX is produced by Christ In Youth (CIY), an organization based out of Joplin, Missouri, that works tirelessly to help students realize the call of Christ in their lives to become Kingdom Workers. CIY accomplishes this mission through events, trips, and resources. For more information about CIY, you can go online to ciy.com.




Donations are accepted for the financial assistance program.
