What We're All About

Encountering the unconditional love of God through meaningful relationships, worship, and the truth of God's Word. Our prayer is that each student will commit to a life-long, life-giving 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 dip their toe in the water, find out who Jesus is, and maybe make a few new friends. 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 what it means to journey with God, this is the place, and you are welcome no matter where you are in your journey.

Wednesday Nights

Each Wednesday night 6:30 to 8PM in the Family Life Center, our program is a multi-faceted approach to help students build friendships and grow in the next stage of their faith. Students enjoy food, competitions, breakout groups, biblical teaching, and meaningful relationships with other students and adults. It is designed to present the essential truths of the gospel as the foundation for thier relationship with God and the source for abundant life.

 

 

Weekend Worship

On Sunday mornings , we meet for in-depth learning from the Bible in the loft at 9 AM. During this time, we study the Word of God and ask him to reveal more about himself, about us, and the world in which we live. We might even have breakfast.

At 10 AM, we join with the whole congregation of Faith Church for worship at our Celebration Service.

All Youth meet every Sunday from 4:00 - 6:00 PM in the gym in the Family Life Center for games, music, fellowship, snacks, and life lessons you can use everyday.

 

Student Ministry Events

Student ministry events are those specially designed times outside of the week to week programs to help students encounter God.  Some events are designed for non-Christians, where our students are challenged to bring thier friends.  Other events are designed to challenge students to grow deeper in their faith through service projects, prayer and praise nights, weekend retreats, or week-long camp trips and mission trips.  Examples are:
