Transit

An environment designed with middle school students in mind

Helping students discover a faith of their own

Middle School can be hard, but you don't have to navigate it alone.

Have an 8th grade student?

 

Our Mile Marker 8 event looks a little different this year, but we don't want this time to pass without celebrating your eighth grade student. This opportunity gives you the chance to mark this important milestone of finishing middle school. 

We miss seeing you, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on Transit!

We are providing an online Transit experience for you each Sunday morning.

There will be a video message available on this page each week for you to view at your regular Transit service time.

After that, you’ll be able to join a “virtual small group room” to discuss the content with your regular small group. The links to those small group rooms will be emailed to parents from your small group leader.

If you're not in a group, no problem!

1. Ask your parent for permission (they'll have to fill out this form).
2. Email us.
3. We'll assign you to a group!

CONNECTIVITY ISSUES

STAY CONNECTED

What happens when our relationships get disconnected? We may be the least relationally connected than we have ever been. Its time we get creative and stay connected!

“Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on.”
(Hebrews 10:23-25)

FOR PARENTS

What can I do to make the most of the resources Transit has available for my Middle School student?

 

1. Join our parent group on Facebook to stay up-to-date on all things Transit! 

2. Fill out a consent form!
In order for your student to participate in these virtual small groups and to receive the daily text devotional from Transit, you’ll need to fill out a consent form to ensure we are in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. If you receive updates from us, you should have received an email with a link to your church’s form. If you haven’t yet completed that form, you can also access it by clicking below.

How do I help my student struggling with a mental health issue during this season?

 

If you are concerned that your student may do something to harm themselves, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline - 1-800-273-8255. 

 

We have compiled some helpful videos and resources for parents and students on mental health. 

 

MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES

What information do you collect from my student and why?

 

During this digital season, we collect the following information so that we can place your student into the appropriate small group:

  • Name
  • Gender
  • Grade
  • Hour
  • Email
  • Phone Number
Who do you share my student’s information with?

 

After our staff collects this information, we share the information with your student’s small group leaders so they can stay connected with you and your student.

Can I see what information you have about my student, and is there a way to remove information?

 

Yes. If you email middleschool@woodstockcity.org with your request, a staff member will be in touch with you.
