The Student Ministry is for 6th – 12th graders. We are dedicated to providing an environment that is safe, fun, engaging, and attractive to all students. We also strive to help our students grow in their relationship with Jesus, learn how to use and apply what is written in the Bible to their lives, learn how to serve and give generously, and connect with other students and adult leaders through authentic, nurturing relationships.
The students meet on Sunday nights. Doors open at 5:45 with a social gathering, games, and fun to provide a time for the students to interact and hang out. We begin our services at 6:00 which include music, bible teaching, application, and games. After the service, we break into small groups to connect with other students and adult leaders, discuss the lesson and figure out how to apply it to our lives, dig deeper into the Bible and prayer, and have fun with games and activities. We wrap up around 7:45 pm.

Student Mission Trip to Appalachia- July 23-29
A group of 6th through 12th-grade students and chaperones will be serving the community in Oak Hill, West Virginia, through food distribution, clean-up, yard work, and a day camp for children in the neighborhood from July 23rd through the 29th. We will also have a recreation day during the week to visit Ace Adventure Water Park.
The Appalachian region is a fantastic place for ministry! It is an area rich in natural resources and beautiful landscapes. The people of Appalachia are incredibly humble yet equally proud of their heritage and lifestyle. They are a hard-working, close-knit, family-first, hospitality-oriented group of people. The Appalachian people not only have to battle the geographical isolation of their location, but their hardship has been perpetuated by the significant loss of jobs due to the decline of mining, steel, and several manufacturing industries. The shortage of gainful employment has led to severe poverty in many communities, and as a result, the effects of substance abuse, food insecurity, and homelessness have taken their toll. The hearts of many people have been fractured, and “hopelessness” is an all-too-common term used by many.
We desire to serve this community, so they feel the love of Jesus and know they are not alone in their struggles. We pray for the community and our students that both will grow closer in their relationship with Jesus through the experiences gained on the trip.
