Student Ministries

Our Student Ministries are weekly gatherings. We’re dedicated to providing a place for students Junior High through High School to connect with God, with other students, and with older committed leaders that are dedicated to seeing students grow closer to Christ. We believe that you can't do life alone, and that our students are at a unique time of life where they can grasp the gospel and the impact of having the life of Jesus in their lives.

Our Student Ministries are divided by age into two group; Junior High and Senior High, with each having a time of worship, prayer, and interactive lessons.

Join the fun and experience a world where students meet Jesus on their level!

Sunday Morning Small Groups / Sunday School

Junior High

The Middle School Sunday School class, led by Bonnie Bevers, begins each week with a small snack, fellowship, and a time of "catching up" from our busy week. The class then delves into the Scripture, studying different books of the Bible on an age appropriate level, looking at how the different stories, lessons, and topics apply to the youths' everyday lives. We close each class with Prayers & Praises, a time of silent reflection, and a closing prayer. 

HS COOL (High School Children of our Lord)

Each week, our high school class enjoys an excursion to The Bakery for some food for thought as we learn about the things that are important to God. They include: honor, purity, respect, goodness and creativity. We will strive to grow in our relationship with Christ and find out who we are together with God. Larry & Elizabeth Scott are the fearless leaders of our HS COOL class.

The High School Youth Group meets on Sunday afternoons from 12:00 - 2:00 in the Fellowship Hall each week. We cook and eat lunch together and then share in a topical Bible Study designed around the pressures and issues our kids face daily. It is a time of food, fellowship, fun, & games. All students, grades 9-12, are invited to attend. 

Signed permission forms are required for all students to participate in off-campus or overnight events. Please complete the form and return it to Bonnie at your earliest convenience.
