The Purpose of Student Ministry:

Students will grow in their faith by discovering the truths of God's Word and His call to make disciples of all nations



Who We Are

Awaken your passion for Christ while joining with other area students who are seeking Him too. It’s our desire to grow together in relationship with Him and live out our faith in a way that genuinely impacts those around us. 

  • We are Christ-centered.
  • We are a ministry for students; not simply to students.
  • We are committed to growing life-long, devoted disciples of Jesus Christ.
  • We are all about the family; we exist to equip and assist parents as they raise their students to have authentic faith


Wednesdays • 6:30–8:00PM

6th–12th grade students are invited to join us for safe and modified youth group nights at the park on Wednesday nights! Stay tuned into our Student Ministry social media channels each week for location details. Students can also join us via Facebook Live.

Take notes during the message each week:

Youth Group

Each Wednesday night we meet for a time of worshiping our Lord, preaching from God’s Word, building relationships, and supporting one another in small groups.

These small groups are the heartbeat of the ministry, led by trained and committed adults who have a passion for discipleship. Students are divided by grade and gender into these groups with two main goals: 1) Learning to apply God’s Word to their lives, and 2) Building relationships with one another through prayer and accountability.

All 6th-12th grade students are welcome. No registration required.

Meeting Times:

**Due to COVID-19, we are currently meeting at Veterans Memorial Park (subject to change). Students can also join us via Facebook Live.

Bridge Preteen Ministry

Bridge is an  intentional class designed specifically for 5th and 6th graders held during weekend worship services. Students learn the basics of our faith and are challenged to grow in their own. As they do, they bridge the gap from being a child of Christ to a growing disciple of Christ.

Meeting Times:
9:00 & 11:00am

**Due to the revised structure of our services during COVID-19, Bridge is currently meeting for the entire duration of the service, and is held in the Gym.

5th–8th grade students who would like to be baptized at Coram Deo are first required to attend our Baptism Class. This 1-hour class typically takes place two weeks prior to Baptism Weekend.

Friday Family Devo

True Religion

Friday, September 25

Join us for another round of Friday Family Devo!

Action Steps:

Junior High & High school
  • Have you ever been told there is more than one way to heaven? If so, how did you respond?
  • How would you respond to someone who takes offense at the idea of Christianity’s claim to be the one true religion?
  • What does Jesus mean when he says he is “the life”?
  • Do you believe that God will end up letting people from other religions into heaven? Why or why not?
  • No family action steps this week.





Do you have a love for students and a desire to see them grow in their walk with the Lord? If so, we would love for you to consider joining our team as a small group leader! We have leadership opportunities available within both Junior High and High School.
