COVID-19 UPDATE: X-TREEME is not meeting in person on Sundays, but we are meeting weekly through online meetings!!
Please watch for further communications from Pastor Chuck and Jody about connecting through Zoom for youth meetings, Sunday School classes, and DG groups.
When the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted and we can safely meet in person, we will post updates and look forward to seeing you again!
X-treeme is the high school youth ministry at Midland Evangelical Free Church.
Our Name is... "X" = Christ "Tree" = The Cross "Me" = me
(Which means Jesus died on a tree for me.) This comes from 1 Peter 2:24.
Jesus is what X-treeme is about!
You really won't find a more passionate love and greater reason for living in all of the universe! So, bottom line, we are about JESUS... but who are "we"?
X-treeme is group of high school students, with some very cool adult staff, in Midland, Michigan living out Jesus Christ's love and truth imperfectly, but passionately!
Our goal is to Make, Mature, and Multiply Disciple Makers of Jesus.
The “FIRST” Sunday of the month is a high energy, fun event designed for you and your friends to come and see who Jesus is. “FIRST” Sunday events are geared toward outreach and include fun times such as Pumpkin Patch Palooza, Turkey Hunt (Road Rally), Christmas Game Show, Broomball, Mystery Outreach, Slip 'N Slide Kickball, Laser Tag, Open Mic Night, and so much more.
The other Sunday nights are for students to come and worship Jesus through singing, prayer and teaching. Following our time at church we go to a local restaurant to enjoy a meal together.
Come once, come each week! We love to point teenagers to Jesus!
Fall 2020 schedule coming soon!

Hey students in 7-12th grades! Are you looking for authentic relationships with your peers? Discipleship Groups (DG’s), small groups, may be what you have been seeking. Groups of up to 10 male or female students of the same grade meet weekly during the school year. Two adults who want to invest in your life lead the group. We want you to stay in the same group as you grow together in Christ from 7th grade through graduation. Students can join a DG any time, but most DG’s begin in the fall. See link to application below. Contact Jody Best at 989.631.4411, x1001 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
