Student Fellowship on Sunday Nights

Middle School & High School
6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Location: Student Ministry Wing & Fellowship Hall
Student Fellowship takes place most Sundays through the school year. Students enjoy games, worship, learning and fellowship.  Occasionally, Student Fellowship has an adventure Sunday and goes off campus for different activities.  Bring a friend and come enjoy a fun packed night!

Middle School Gathering

Wednesday
6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Location: Student Ministry Wing

Middle School Mania meets after the Wednesday all church fellowship dinner at 5:30p.m. Middle Schoolers participate in a bible study that is intertwined with games, activities and sharing.

High School Small Groups

Wednesday
Varying times
Location: Church and homes

High School students meet in same-age, same-gender groups for fellowship, sharing and devotion.  Small groups are a smaller setting aimed at building relationships and walking through life together.  Each small group has an adult leader who serves as a mentor and facilitates biblical direction and learning. If you would like to get plugged into a small group, contact Katie Arnold for more information.

Sunday School

9:45 a.m.−10:45 a.m.
Location: Student Ministry Wing
High School students meet to study scripture together and discuss its personal application.
Middle Schoolers participate in confirmation class.  Confirmation is a two year class that covers basic theology and application. The class prepares students to be confirmed at the end of their eighth grade year. Students who take the class have the choice to be confirmed and join the church.

College Ministry

The college Ministry is focused on walking with students who have graduated out of the high school ministry. As students go off to college, military, careers, etc., our hope is that as a church family we can stay connected with them.  We strive to love, encourage, pour into them and share Truth in a variety of ways. Because many students leave the area, we do not have weekly college age programming.  We also provide opportunities for students to do leadership training and internships.
Our activities include:
– Summer Bible Study
– Summer Mission Trip
– Holiday Gatherings
– Passion Conference in Atlanta
– Valentine’s Care Packages
– College Visits
– Meal & Coffee Dates
