Students

Sundays

At 9:15am each Sunday, we have classes for middle and high school students year-round. Students in 5th – 8th grade meet in Student Ministry Center East and those in 9th – 12th grade meet in Student Ministry Center North. We encourage students to come to class during one gathering and attend a gathering with their family or small group.

Wednesdays

Wednesday nights during the school year we have large-group programming for students each week. High school students gather in Student Ministry Center North and 5th – 8th grade in Student Ministry Center East. Each student ministry building has meals, snacks & drinks available in the cafés, a worship time filled with age-targeted teaching, music, and games, as well as dedicated time for community and discussion in small groups. The café opens at 5:45pm and programming goes from 6:30-8:00pm.

DGroups

Community is crucial in experiencing completeness in Jesus. D•Groups are small groups focused on Discipleship where students are mentored by leaders who are committed to walking alongside them each year and helping them know God, grow in their relationship with him, and go with him in what he is doing in the world around them. These groups are gender and grade-specific and usually consist of an hour and a half of casual hang-out time, bible study, and, of course, snacks. All groups meet in homes or at the church, with 7•12 groups meet weekly and 5•6 ones every other week, though group locations, dates, and times are based on what is best for each group.

Events Trips

Sometimes it takes getting away from our hometowns and regular routines for students to encounter Jesus in new and deep ways. Each summer our 7•8 and 9•12 students attend Christ In Youth conferences, MIX & MOVE, while our 5•6 graders head to camp Maranatha, both of these organizations being two of our Impact partners. We also believe it is transformational for students to serve with and learn from people who are different than them, so we take two mission trips at the end of each summer – 7•8 to Kansas City and 9•12 to Albuquerque.

Parents

We know one of the best ways we can help students to experience completeness in Jesus is to partner with you to disciple your 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.
