Student Ministry

Students

We place a high importance on the next generation and equipping them to live fully for Jesus. We realize this is an important time in the life of teens and pre-teens, so we strive to provide a place students can discover Jesus, go deeper in Christ and grow in their relationship with Him.

We have three ministries for our students:

  • Ignite (grade 5 & 6)
  • Encounter (grades 7-9)
  • Invasion (grades 10-12)

Ignite

Grades 5-6

The goal of our Ignite student ministry is to “ignite” a heart for God in our 5th-6th graders. Separating this group of students will give them time to cultivate a maturing understanding of what it really means to have a relationship with Jesus. And we hope it will equip them with confidence when making the hard choices they will face in the world.

Service Times

Sunday mornings:
9:00 am - Family service (all students attend the adult worship service in the sanctuary)
10:30 am - Ignite students start in the Alley for worship, then dismiss to the Admin Building for their lesson*

First Sundays:
5:00 pm - Empower worship service in the sanctuary for all student ministries (grades 5-12)

*The 1st Sunday of every month is a Family Worship Service. That means students attend the adult worship service in the sanctuary.

Encounter

Grades 7-9

Our Encounter student ministry will help 7th-9th graders navigate through this crucial time in life as we create an atmosphere where they can have a real encounter with a Living God. Encounter Students will have the opportunity to hang out, play games and have great teaching or discussion specifically targeted for them.

Invasion
