We welcome any and all students who come through our doors- inviting them to respond to the Gospel personally and to be involved in the fellowship and community of the church, learning to serve one another in love.
During the school year, we have weekly youth nights for all students grades 6-12. Youth nights from September through early June are Friday night from 6:30-8:30pm. We usually split Middle (6-8) and High (9-12) school groups for teaching and games, but keep them together for some things like announcements, worship, icebreakers and more.
Youth nights may include (but not limited to): Games, worship, teaching/small groups, snacks, videos, contests and more!
On top of youth nights, a few more things we do:
- Occasional Friday Fun Nights- combined group. A good chance to invite non-churched friends to come see what we're about
- Saturday/Weekend Events- about once/month we like to try to get one of these in. In the past, has included fun trips, service projects together, outreach opportunities and more.
- Weekend Retreats- Either retreats for just our group or District-wide retreats with other churches at Delta Lake- these offer opportunities for students to find Christ, grow closer to Him, to each other and meet other students across the state.
- Summer Mission Trips- We take at least one 'mission' trip each summer- highlighting to students both the need to learn to serve others in the name of Christ and also share the Good News of Jesus all over the world! These trips include a ministry closer to home and international trips every other year.
