Welcome to Student Ministries!

SM web page

It’s our mission to help students find their way back to God! We want each student to know and experience God’s love and grace, and urge them to take the next step from wherever they are- to grow closer to Jesus. It’s our desire and passion for youth to build authentic relationships with other students and leaders so they can actively explore what living out their faith looks like. We want to help empower each student to make a difference in their home, school, and community!

Believing parents are the primary spiritual leaders for their family, we seek to partner with parents and grandparents in helping to raise youth with a faith that sticks for a lifetime. In our children’s and student ministries, we value age-appropriate biblical teaching, missions, parent partnership, inter-generational relationships, and of course, lots of FUN!

  • +Profession of Faith

    ‘Young Seekers’ is a profession of faith program that runs in the fall for students in grades 8-12.  Students are paired with a mentor, called a guide who walks with them through asking some of the big questions around faith.

     

 

Get involved!

It takes a village, right? Students need  trusted mentor leaders of all ages to gain wisdom from and to confide in as they discover who God is and as they seek to make their identity in Him.
