Faith, Fun, and Keeping Life Real
Our goal here in the student ministry is simple. We want students to know and love the gospel of Jesus Christ and grow in their faith, surrounded by a loving community. Our hope is to come alongside students and their families to spur them on in their walk with the Lord.
Our format involves two types of settings. On Wednesday nights, all of our middle school and high school students gather for “Merge,” where we will all dive into the Word of God and worship together. On Sundays, students meet in small groups that are geared specifically toward their particular age group in order to talk about practically living out their faith.
These years in middle school and high school can be tough, but we aren’t meant to live in isolation! We are made for community and the encouragement and accountability that comes from “doing life” with others. If you’re a student and you’re on the fence about what choice to make, we hope you know that you’ll be welcome to come and grow with us anytime.
“Our students are truly passionate about serving Christ through hands-on activities. We just need to provide the necessary resources and guidance to support them, and then watch them make disciples for Jesus.”

Merge is a dynamic worship service tailor-made for junior high and high school students. Students can come expecting a relevant worship experience and Biblical teaching that will captivate their attention and change their lives. The service meets every Wednesday from 6 to 8 pm in the Overflow Room. Merge is a place to connect other young people ready to grow spiritually and understand their place in this world.

Wednesdays 6:00 – 8:00 pm The Overflow
The Gathering provides an opportunity for our junior high students to experience an authentic and accepting community with students their age. In The Gathering, students will be broken into small groups based upon age and gender. These groups will hang out, study the Bible, and have fun being junior high students! We believe that God moves in big ways through small groups.
