    Weekly Small Groups & Monthly Worship Gatherings

    School Year COW 2021–22

    COW is the heartbeat of our middle school ministry. In this unique season we will be gathering weekly for small groups (herds) and monthly for worship! We’d love for you to join our middle school community!

    COW Herds | Oak Brook
    Wednesdays, 7:00–8:30 p.m. | Starting September 8

    Wednesday night COW is back! We’re looking forward to gathering as a whole student community every Wednesday night from 7:00–8:30 p.m. at our Oak Brook campus. Students will gather together as a large group community--where they’ll enjoy some middle school fun--then will split off into small groups where they’ll build great friendships, experience meaningful mentorship, and learn about God together!

    Monthly Gather Events
    Starting September 8

    Once a month our middle school community will pause small groups, and blow the roof off with a larger than normal ”Gather” event. These are the big nights of COW that no one will want to miss. We’re talking inflatables, snacks, video games on the big screens, and much more. Gather is designed to be an easy event to bring your friends to! Mark your calendar, invite your friends, you’ll want to be at each of these Gather weeks!

    Camp COW 2022 
    Middle School Camp | Grades 6 - 8

    Camp COW | Baraboo, WI 
    Save the Date: June 27 - July 1, 2022

    Camp Cow is an experience designed to challenge, encourage, refresh and empower middle schoolers. The entire week is made to engage individuals on multiple levels. Biblical, relevant teaching challenges the campers to discover what it means to follow Jesus Christ. Authentic, engaging staff lead campers in discussions and times of recreation during their week at camp. Our morning and evening programs are the highlights of the day as campers are given the space to praise God together through music and experiential learning. Of course all of this is complemented by crazy games, paintball, high ropes, knocker-ball, archery, rock climbing, swimming, kayaking and a day at the Wisconsin Dells! A week at Camp Cow provides middle schoolers with engaging conversations, life- changing moments, fun-filled days and lasting memories. 

    Camp Cow is ultimately an opportunity to create spiritual markers in the lives of middle schoolers so they can look back and say... 

    “I remember God did something in my heart, and it happened at Camp Cow!”
