Sundays | 7 – 8:30 PM

Middle school ministry is for 6-8th grade youth!

FUEL is a weekly gathering of middle school students that includes games, interactive and Bible-based messages, small group discussions, worship, and more. Our in-person gatherings meet in the Worship Center at Good Shepherd. All middle school students are welcome!

Our small groups are led by adult and high school leaders who walk with students throughout the school year. These leaders pray, share, laugh, and grow with their students as they help them to pursue authentic faith and live life on mission with Jesus. We organize our small groups by gender, grade, and school so that students can connect with others from their school. Our students come from a variety of schools in Naperville, Aurora, Oswego, Plainfield, Downers Grove, and beyond!

Fuel Kickoff for 2023 is September 10th at 7pm.


In addition to our weekly gatherings, we offer quarterly events for middle school students like the Half-Nighter, Dodgin’ 4 Dough, Winter Camp, Eternal Impact, and more! See our Student Ministry current events & registration page for the most updated information and registration forms.
