making disciples of the next generation

The goal of our student ministry is to reach the next generation with the gospel and equip them to become disciple-makers who know and treasure Christ.  We have a great team of committed leaders who love students and seek to invest in them personally week in and week out, and whenever possible, we seek to partner with parents and encourage them as the spiritual leaders of their children.  Our aim is to give students a solid foundation to their faith, so that when they leave home, they will be prepared for adulthood and walk with Christ for a lifetime - seeking to change the world for His glory.  

WEDNESDAY NIGHT gathering

Our Wednesday night gathering is a great way for teenagers to get connected in Christ-centered community.  Each week, we eat a meal together, study God's Word together in small groups, and have tons of fun!  Our Middle School ministry consists of 5-8th graders, and our High School ministry 9-12th graders.  We hope you'll come join us!
