During Bible Study, at 9:00 on Sunday mornings, we focus on helping students see the overarching story of Scripture and how their story fits into God’s story. They get to investigate key characters and concepts and see what the Gospel is and how it courses throughout all of Scripture. Our hope is for your teenager to become a life-long learner and to approach God’s word with awe and wonder every time.
The Attic is our student youth group that meets on Sunday nights from 5:30-7pm. Our structure of each youth group consists of games, worship, a lesson, and small group time. We want your students to encounter Christ, learn to trust him and radically follow him. We want to expand your students’ view of God as well as challenge their assumptions and own their faith in Christ. Our teaching focuses on what students are experiencing and helping them live in God’s kingdom right now. Each week we emphasize studying scripture with a look at topics like relationships, identity, stress and spiritual habits, etc. that are impacting students on a daily basis. Our hope is to be a catalyst so they engage Christ and His mission for the rest of their lives.
Taco Tuesday started back in 1994 with a handful of students in the youth pastor parsonage and now has grown to over 100 high school students coming every Tuesday to grab some delicious tacos by our awesome Taco Tuesday volunteers! Taco Tuesday is a chance for the student ministry to reach high school students by providing them with a free meal, reminding them of Christ’s love, and creating a positive experience where they will be encouraged and have fun! Taco Tuesday is every Tuesday during high school lunch hours when school is in session.
Devo & Donuts is every Wednesday morning at 7:30am during the school year! Donuts are eaten and a short devotion is shared before the students head off to school! Devo & Donuts is for both middle and high school students.
Acts Nights meets Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:30pm. It is a rotation of four different elements of meals, prayer, worship and games. Acts Nights derives out of Acts 2:42 when the Christian believers first gathered. In the course of 1 month (4 Wednesdays) we spend time practicing what the first believers did: prayer, fellowship, taking communion, worshiping and community building. Again, we want your students to encounter Christ, learn to trust him and radically follow him. We want to expand your students’ view of God as well as challenge their assumptions and own their faith in Christ. Acts Nights gives students a chance in the middle of the week to pause, breathe, have fun, build community, worship God and re-center themselves back on Christ!
