Welcome to ECHO, our expanded Middle School ministry. ECHO is a place where middle school students grow and become. Where we seek to reverberate the love of God deep within our hearts and to the hearts of others. And just as echoes multiply, we hope that this ministry would be a place where love and acceptance grows, where fun is infinite, and where adventure is amplified…

In ECHO students, volunteers, and staff spend time every week sharing in laughter, building lasting relationships, discovering how to help make the world a better place, and learning how to respond to Truth. Part of our time together is spent in large group, where any number of things happen—we learn, play, laugh, entertain, focus, and let loose. The rest of our time is spent in our LifeGroups, where we discuss, share, hang out, and build relationships together.

ECHO meets on Sundays, September to May, from 4:30pm-6pm in South Hall Room M2.

Michigan’s Adventure

2 Parks for the Price of 1.That’s right– we are headed to Michigan’s Adventure! Michigan’s largest amusement park and water park is home to seven rollercoasters including Shivering Timbers and Thunderhawk! 53 rides in all. Or you could spend the day at a Beach Party with spray guns, water slides, water wheels, and a drenching bucket. Sounds pretty splashtastic!

We are planning to depart Mars Hill on June 26 at 10am and return by 10pm. Price is $35 and includes ticket and transportation. You will be responsible for lunch and dinner in the park and we recommend at least $20-$25 for the day [extra if you are going to buy snacks]. Further details will be emailed closer to the event.
