Our club at Rutledge Middle School meets on Wednesdays at 3:30-4:30 in the cafeteria. 

5 churches in Grainger County have come together to make YOKE possible at Rutledge Middle. These churches invite YOKE to make presentations in their worship services, they pray for the ministry and support it financially so that the club has the supplies that it needs and students can go to camp.
It’s been a special blessing this year to watch one of our former YOKE kids grow into a leadership role. Lily got connected with YOKE in middle school, stayed involved through the Future Folk program and this year becomes a full-fledged YOKE Folk!

“I’ve loved all of the kid time activities this year,” says Amy, one of our talented and committed leaders. “We partnered with FCA for a huge party at the end of the school year, but also hosted hayrides and carved pumpkins, made Christmas ornaments, colored Easter eggs and had a serious game of flag football.”

“I would have to say that coolest thing I saw this year was when a group of our boys planned and hosted a weekly Bible Study of their own,” added Chris.  “They planned out when and where it would be and asked me and Andrew to bring a lesson. It was a great experience getting to build relationships with those guys, and it was even more awesome to see them take charge in their relationship with God.”

Pray for YOKE at Rutledge Middle School:

  • For more young men and women to serve as mentors
  • For more students to get connected
  • For more churches to partner with the ministry
