If you wander around campus on Sunday and hear some people having a good time, chances are it’s the kids in Platinum 78! This group fosters God’s joy into a fun-loving family that doesn’t shy away from exploring tough questions and God’s mysterious ways.
Building on the ideals focused on in Club 56, Platinum 78 focuses on creating a healthy, welcoming, and open community for incoming 7th to outgoing 8th graders to build lasting relationships that help them wrestle with the difficult challenges they face. Middle school often brings with it a search for identity and an aching need for belonging, and our goal is to help students encounter both through experiencing God, his Word, and his community.
We also help students explore their servant hearts and share God’s community with others through mission trips and community projects that harness their joyful energies and caring compassion. We meet Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings.
Students attend the worship session with the larger WCPres family. Platinum 78 also offers a discussion-based curriculum during the second hour as a safe and caring environment to actively engage with their faith.
During the school year, Platinum 78 offers a weekly evening program that features goofy games, tailored teachings, and fostering growth in God.
