Student Ministry Weekly programming


Sunday School Groups – 9:15-10:15 am. In this environment, students will have the opportunity to build community and study God’s Word. This semester (Fall ’18), our students will walk through a 12 week study of the book of Joshua using the curriculum “Joshua” by Trent Hunter. Student Groups are divided by age and grade. Middle School Students will meet in the Middle School Theater and High School Students will begin in the High School Theater.

Worship 10:30 am All Students in Sanctuary for Family Worship.


Mid Week Worship – 6:15-7:45 pm. Middle and High School Students will come together in the High School theater beginning at 6:15 pm for a combined worship experience. This Fall, we will host a series called “WHY?” with the goal of answering the top “why” questions in Christianity. These “Why” questions will come from the book Cornerstones by Brian Demboxczyk. On August the 15th we will kickoff the new year by answering the “What?” we believe by walking through the Gospel.

Doors open at 5:30 pm in the Middle School theater each week for fellowship before worship.
