Middle School

Our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders meet at Christ Church to be in community with each other.  Students are engaged in living a personal faith with Jesus in both large and small group gatherings Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights.



During the summer we have a unique opportunity to meet in homes throughout our community.  Our students break off into eight different house groups to engage in fellowship, fun, snacks, and an awesome video series exploring the parables of Jesus.  Students will be assigned to groups based on their friend request and town preferences.  Come on out to join us this summer for these low-key small groups!  It should be awesome!

What is CAMP COW?

Camp Cow is an experience designed to challenge, encourage, refresh and empower middle schoolers. The entire week is made to engage individuals on multiple levels. Biblical, relevant teaching challenges the campers to discover what it means to follow Jesus Christ. Authentic, engaging staff lead campers in discussions and times of recreation during their week at camp. Our morning and evening programs are the highlights of everyday as campers are given the space to praise God together through music and experiential learning. Of course all of this is complemented by crazy games, paintball, high ropes, rock climbing, swimming, kayaking and a day at the Wisconsin Dells!  A week at Camp Cow provides middle schoolers with engaging conversations, life- changing moments, fun-filled days and lasting memories.

Camp Cow is ultimately an opportunity to create spiritual markers in the lives of middle schoolers so they can look back and say...

“I remember God did something in my heart, and it happened at Camp Cow!”


Camp COW is for all incoming 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Students (Current 5th, 6th and 7th). If you fall into those age requirements then you are welcome to join us for this life-changing week! We invite all students, regardless of their school, church commitment, or friend group! It is a chance for us to grow as a community and invite new friends to experience God in a powerful way!!!

Students will arrive at CCOB at 8am on Monday.  We will travel by bus to Expeditions Unlimited in Baraboo, WI, and will return to the church during the afternoon (time is tbd) Friday June 30 for a family celebration and worship.

Music City Mission
July 23-28

Music City Mission

What is Music City Mission?

Music City Mission is a unique urban focused missions trip to the city of Nashville.  Students will have the opportunity to serve in soup kitchens, urban farms, and other urban outreach ministries unique to the "Music City."

When is Music City Mission?

Sunday July 23 - Friday July 28th, 2017

Why Nashville?

Our 7th and 8th grade missions trips are on a two year rotation giving each student the chance to serve in an urban center (Nashville), as well as a rural town (West Virginia). 

Nashville is a unique city, beautiful and full of history, but also home to some areas of massive inner-city need.  Our students will have the opportunity to enjoy one of America's finest cities, while serving a community truly in need.

How much does Music City Mission Cost?

Because we value student missions deeply here at CCOB, we have done everything possible to make this trip affordable.  In fact we have underwritten over $150 per student to make this trip a reality!  All said and done our Music City Mission will cost $315 which will cover room and board, vans, gas and other expenses.

We are just coming off of an incredible summer together, and now we are building into an exciting fall! Fall can be a crazy time for families as students head back to school, sports, and many other extra curricular activities. It is my hope that we at COW can be a place for our students to be equipped to carry their faith into all of their various activities. I hope that we as a group can make a difference at our schools, on our sports teams, and with our friends. I really encourage you to get involved with COW this year, and place God at the center of all of your awesome activities!!! Take a look below to see a few things that are taking place here in the next few months!
