Students' schedule

Elevate Student Minsitries Services // Wednesday Nights in Hope 204

Elevate is our Wednesday night worship service for middle and high school students. Each week students get the opportunity to engage with God in worship, lead by our one of our student worship teams, and be challenged to hear from God's Word. Services are split by grade level. Middle school worship starts at 6:15pm and high school worship starts at 7:30pm. Before the services students have an opportunity to grab a coffee, soda, pizza or hotdog from the Elevate Café which opens at 5:00pm on Wednesday. We also open up our outdoor basketball area at 5:00pm as well. Elevate is a great place to come on a Wednesday night. Hope to see you soon!

Tuesday Morning Prayer Time

Every Tuesday morning middle and high school students in Lee County and in Albany gather together for prayer and fellowship before school. Lee Co. students meet at the Chick-fil-a of Lee Co. at 6:45am until 7:25am. Students in Albany meet at Panera Bread at 7:00am until 7:30am. Transportation to school is provided from both locations for those who need it. Make plans to be up early on Tuesday mornings for a fun time of fellowship and prayer.
