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

6th–12th grade students are invited to join us for Youth Group on Wednesday nights! Each week, we meet for a time of worshiping our Lord, preaching from God’s Word, building relationships, and supporting one another in small groups.

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.

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.

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.
