ABOUT X-treeme (9-12th grades)

X-treeme is the high school youth ministry at Midland Evangelical Free Church.
Our Name is... "X" = Christ    "Tree" = The Cross      "Me" = me

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 include Nuk 'em 2.0, Pumpkin Patch Palooza, Turkey Hunt (Road Rally), Christmas Game Show, Broomball, Mystery Outreach, Slip 'N Slide Kickball, and 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!

Sunday School—9:00 am

Do You want to grow? Do you want to know God’s Word? Do you want to become a disciple maker of Jesus? Then we have an amazing resource for you! We offer fantastic classes on Sunday morning (at 9:00 am throughout the school year) for students in 9-12th grades. Middle school and high school classes are broken out by grade.

The goal of our Sunday School program is equip teens to know God’s Word and how to apply it to grow into spiritually mature disciples of Christ. We are studying The Gospel Project for Students.


The Gospel Project for Students will provide you

  • A Three-Year Journey through Scripture:
    Students chronologically examine all Scripture
     through a Christ-centered lens.
  • 99 Essential Christian Doctrines:
    Highlights essential doctrines of the Christian faith every student should know.
  • Christ Connection: Each session shows students how all Scripture points to Christ.
  • Apologetics: Students will not only understand what they believe, but why.
  • Head, Heart, Hands: Helps students to see how the gospel transforms the way they think, feel, and live every day.
  • Interactive Questions: Engages students to think through the session material and how it challenges them today.
  • Daily Discipleship Material: Provides five days of discipleship content each week to help students cultivate a habit of personal Bible study.

Discipleship Groups

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
