Welcome to Student Ministries

It’s our mission to help students find their way back to God! We want each student to know and experience God’s love and grace, and urge them to take the next step from wherever they are – to grow closer to Jesus. It’s our desire and passion for youth to build authentic relationships with other students and leaders so they can actively explore what living out their faith looks like. We want to help empower each student to make a difference in their home, school, and community!

About our Sunday night format… Matthew 22:37-40 and Matthew 28:19 are the words of Jesus which are commonly called the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.  They are the two most important statements which gives insight to how disciples of Jesus live, and what our mission should be.  From them, three dominant themes of a community of disciples emerge:

 UP – worship together  | IN – gaining community as a group | OUT – serving our community
