The Barn Gathering {An Experience for Girls in Grades 6-8}

The Barn Gathering is a weekly program for middle school girls in grades 6th-8th led by Andrea Young and Shala Nolan. Together we lead 16 girls affectionately referred to as #thesweetsixteen in navigating the middle school years, identity in Christ AND hands-on learning. We meet during the school year on Wednesdays from 9am-2pm in the barn challenging these girls in growing deeper in their faith, in friendship and who God designed them to be with their passions and gifts.

Every gathering consists of scripture study, rooting ourselves deeper in who and whose we are and relationship skills. We rotate our hands-on study and logic/apologetics studies each month following a different theme that matches our relational goals. Just a peak at what The Gathering looks like on paper…

We will be posting weekly encouragement and ideas on our Barn Gathering Instagram space–so whether you live near or far you can gain a little inspiration for loving tweens and teens in their middle grade years here:
