What is Transit?
Transit is a Sunday worship environment specially tailored to help students discover a faith of their own.
Grades 6-8 can be a confusing and exciting season. Through inspirational speakers, heartfelt small group discussions, and fun games—students explore their relationship with Jesus and how that can influence every decision they make.
We want every student to know:
- I will love God because he will never stop loving me.
- I will follow Jesus because he knows me better than I know myself.
- I will live out God’s story so others can know who Jesus is.
For more information or if you have a question, please contact Robyn Coleman.
Transit meets during the 10:00 a.m. service. The messages will also be available on our YouTube channel during the week.

8 November – How will people react when I show up?
We’ve all misplaced things we really care about. Whether it was our blankies as kids or our homework as students, we all know the panic and anxiety that hit us when something we value is gone. We also know the relief that washes over us when we find these precious items.
15 November – We want to avoid standing out
What about us? Why does he care more about him? I don’t know if sheep have thoughts, but I imagine if they did, they may have wondered something why the shepherd would leave ninety-nine loyal, healthy sheep for one lost sheep.
Starting Next Week
Why? - October/November 2020
18 October – What does it mean to be a Christian?
It is no secret that Christians often get the reputation of being judgmental, hypocritical, or harsh. Why is that?
25 October – Why are people mean?
We’ve all dealt with mean people. They can be frustrating, annoying, and incredibly hurtful. If we’re being honest, we’ve also all been mean to someone else.
Seek to Serve - September 2020
Part 1 – Christ’s message spread because of people like you.
Angels, visions, and even talking donkeys are some of the ways God has spread his message. However, more often than not, he chooses a more traditional approach.
Part 2 – If you serve to get, that’s all you’ll get.
We all know that serving others should be done with genuine and sincere gestures. We should happily and cheerfully meet others’ needs in secret and know that our reward is being able to give our help freely and show the love of God to someone else.
Part 3 – Seek to serve, rather than expecting to be served.
Most of us have dreamed about being the one in charge with everything we could ever want at our fingertips. However, in John 13, we find Jesus with a very different attitude and no mention of doormen or personal assistants.
Real Talk - Aug/Sept 2020
Week 1 – School seems to be full of fake people.
At times we’re all tempted to pretend we’re someone we’re not, but today we want you to discover that being fake doesn’t foster real relationships.
In This Together - August 2020
Week 1 – My family is not normal.
Grades 6-8 is a time of discovery. One such discovery may be that your family is a little different than everybody else’s seem to be.
Week 2 – The only way to get freedom is to fight for it.
“Honour your father and mother” probably doesn’t top your list or any other student’s list of favourite passages from Scripture. But . . .
Four Friends - July 2020
Week 1 – Choosing friends can be complicated.
Going back to school brings all sorts of new opportunities, one of which is making new friends. However, making friends isn’t easy.
Week 2 – This year is harder than last year.
Grades 6-8 are an intimidating time for students who are standing alone. But when they have friends surrounding them . . .
Freedom - June 2020
Week 1 – We think freedom means having access to everything we want.
The desire to have everything you want can quickly cause students to equate stuff with freedom. Your friends parents trust them with a phone—why don’t yours?
Week 2 – We think the way to get more freedom is to fight for it.
This week, our quest for freedom becomes personal. There are specific people keeping you from the freedom you desire.
Sons & Daughters - May 2020
Week 1 – Some of us believe that you have to earn your way to God.
There are plenty of relationships in life that require you to earn your place (on a sports team, a part in a play, or in the choir). It’s no wonder many apply that same mindset to their relationship with God.
Week 2 – We think God must be exactly like our earthly fathers.
Everyone has a dad, whether that dad is at the top of the charts or missing in action. Isn’t it true that based on our dads’ performance, we sometimes make God out to be just like him—for better or for worse?
