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 our weekly worship gathering specifically designed for junior high and high school students. In this setting, we focus on creating a safe and fun environment to engage students with biblical preaching, musical worship, and genuine relationships. Every second Wednesday of the month we purposefully plan a fun night for building community and outreach for teenagers. Merge is an incredible opportunity for 6-12th graders to have fun and encounter God in a meaningful way.

The Gathering provides an opportunity for junior high students to experience a fun and accepting community with students their age. In The Gathering, students will have the freedom to play games, get to know one another, and will be engaged with a new biblical truth every week.

SecondStudents Small Groups
We believe that life change happens best in small groups. Secondstudents’ off-campus small groups meet on Sunday evenings from 5:30-7:30pm. 6th and 7th grade meets at the church, while 8-12th grade meet in homes. Come and join us for small groups and learn what it looks like to live in authentic, biblical community.
