What We’re All About
Encountering the unconditional love of God through meaningful relationships, games and the truth of God’s Word. Our prayer is that each student will commit to a life-long relationship with Jesus Christ.
Student Ministries are intentionally designed to meet students at many levels. Some events are designed for students who just want to have fun (Hey, that’s fine. We want to build relationships with them, so we can point them towards Christ!), while other events are designed to help students experience God and learn to follow him more fully each day. If you want to learn more about Christ and have fun with friends, this is the place.

Each Wednesday night from 6:00 to 8:00pm in the Gym, we start with a dinner collectively as a church and breakout after dinner into various Bible study groups. The youth move to the Loft to play games and pray together before traveling back to the gym to finish with more fun activities. This night is designed to give students a break from the school week and have fellowship together.
On Sunday mornings, we meet for Bible study in The Loft at 9:00am. During this time, we study the Word of God and discuss the application of the text to our lives.
At 10:00am, we join with the whole congregation for Worship service in the sanctuary.
All Youth meet every Sunday from 4:00 – 6:00pm in the gym for Bible study, games, fellowship, snacks and a lesson. This time is great not only for students to grow closer to God but also closer to each other.
