Student Ministry

Preparing students to discover completeness in Jesus.

Gathering Times

It is our desire that 5•8 students embrace the Gospel through studying the Scriptures in large group teaching and small group discussions every week! 5•8 students meet on Sundays during the 9:15 service in the Student Ministry Center East.

It is our desire that 9•12 students become integrated in the church; they are not the church of tomorrow but the church of today. On Sunday mornings our focus is: Worship, Service and Study. Worship: On Sunday mornings, students are encouraged to worship with their families, d-group leaders, and/or friends in the adult services at 8:00am, 9:15am or 10:45am. Serve: Students can continue to explore their gifts and passions in serving alongside leaders and staff in various areas throughout the church, including Creative Arts, Early Childhood, Children’s Ministry, Guest Services and Student Ministry (5•8 Grade). Study: During the summer, we have elective classes for 9•12 that meet in SMC North during the 9:15 service.

We have a dynamic worship service geared specifically for 5•12 students to connect with God, friends, and amazing adult leaders that are pointing them to Christ! 5•8 meets from 6:30-8:00pm in the Student Ministry Center East, and 9•12 meets in the Student Ministry Center North at the same time. Students will participate in large group games, worship through song, learn from dynamic teachers, and build relationships through Connection Group discussions.

Current Sermon Series

This series is designed to instill our values and goals with the student ministry family at large. It will be an identity series on who we are both individually and collectively. This sermon series will reflect on the public statement of who Christ’s Church is. “We are a Christian church that loves God, preaches Christ, and is led by the Holy Spirit to love our neighbors. We gather for the inspiration of God through worship, the instruction of His Word through teaching, and the involvement of all through lasting relationships and selfless acts of service.”

D-Groups

One of the ways we prepare students to discover completeness in Jesus is through connecting students with leaders that are consistently pointing them to Christ. D-Groups (Discipleship Groups) meet on a weekly basis to further their relationship with one another in gender and grade specific groups, engage with the Scriptures and have a ton of fun together!

Each group is based off of gender and grade. All groups meet in family homes, although group locations, dates, and times are based on what is best for each group.

Parents

Our vision for the Student Ministry at Christ’s Church is to prepare students to discover completeness in Jesus. We know one of the best ways we can do that is to partner with parents to disciple students. We do our best to provide a safe, friendly, loving environment full of leaders who want your student to know they are known, valued and loved. We want to be a resource to you and your family as you are raising your children.

Events

Something happens when students are taken out of their normal daily life and put into an environment where they can experience Jesus in a new way. When we remove the “crazy” for just a little while, Jesus can speak to us clearly. He can remind us who we are in Him. That’s why we make it a priority to schedule age appropriate trips and events throughout the year for our students.

Have A Story?

The best way to share God's faithfulness with others is to share your story, the story of how God has provided, the story of how God has delivered, the story of how God has transformed. We want to hear your story so that others can experience the faithfulness of God.

Baptism

Baptism doesn't earn God's grace or mercy, it is how we receive it. It doesn't force God's hand, it is our identification with Jesus. Interested in being baptized?
