Student Ministry

Our Student Ministry is a fun and safe place for 7th-12th graders to grow in their relationship with Jesus and other Christians. Come and see what it's all about, and make some new friends in the process. Student Ministry meets every sunday from 5PM-7PM.

About Us

We are focused on:

  • learning about God with an open mind
  • making the world a better place
  • building a welcoming community of teenagers

We encourage you to be yourself, ask questions, and make friends. We don’t have all of the answers but we do have a lot of understanding and grace. No one is perfect and being a teenager is hard. Don't go through life alone!

Come be a part of the Church of the future!

Join Us

The easiest way to join us is by attending on Sunday night from 5-7pm. We play games, hear a message from our student pastor, Lex, and then break into small groups to discuss the message. And in between there are often snacks and cute, hypoallergenic dogs.

Outside of Sunday nights, you’ll usually find us spending time doing something fun to grow closer as followers of Jesus or serving others to make earth a little more like heaven. You can find examples of this on our Instagram. You’ll also see our students volunteering on Sunday mornings in our worship team, Children’s ministry, and hospitality team.

We are breaking for the summer and will return to our weekly meetings on August 28th.

Safety Protocols

Our students' safety is our #1 priority! We have these protocols in place to protect our students:
  • Background checks on every volunteer at least every 2 years
  • Students and volunteers are never alone in groups smaller than 3.
  • Volunteers save their direct messages between students and they do not message students before 9:00am and after 9:00pm.
  • Volunteers do not add students on Snapchat.
  • We require parents to fill out a medical form for their student(s) each calendar year incase of emergency.
