Our mission is to ignite students’
love for Jesus and
passion to serve others.
Serve Core | Sundays | 10:00-11:00AM
Each Sunday morning from 10:00-11:00AM students will have an opportunity to serve or prepare to serve. This is an on-ramp for students to take the next step of service inside and outside of the church. Don’t just do church; be the church!
Middle School Gathering |Sundays| 11:15-12:15PM
Each Sunday from 11:15AM-12:15PM Middle School students (6th-8th grade) are invited to gather in groups for breakfast, to laugh, connect with their friends and caring adult leaders, and grow in their faith through exploring the Bible.
Ignite |Sundays| 5:30-7:30PM
Each Sunday night from 5:30-7:30PM we invite all 6th-12th grade students to connect over food, laughter, worship, and a message that makes sense and matters for their lives. We’ll also break out into groups, led by awesome leaders, to talk about how faith is relevant in our everyday life.
High School D-Groups | Various Times and locations
Students will be encouraged to take a next step in their faith by participating in small group sessions that will focus on deepening their faith through exploring the Bible, unpacking theological truths, praying for one another, and learning to apply God’s word to their lives.
