Our student ministry vision is to partner with families to help students KNOW CHRIST and MAKE HIM KNOWN.
Belonging | We want each student that walks through our doors to feel known and valued. We want them to know that within our group, there are both students and leaders who care about them and notice when they don’t come.
Celebration | Through worship and life change, we desire to help students understand God’s love for them.
Growth | Our ministry aims to help students learn how to study their Bible, see how the Gospel is practical in everyday life, and have a personal relationship with the Lord.
Fun | When students walk into our ministry, we want them to enjoy themselves, have a good time, feel comfortable, be with friends, and make memories.
Hope Building | 11 am-noon | Middle and High School
We believe every student needs a small community of consistent friends and leaders that are challenging them to connect with God, a biblical community, and a caring adult so they can develop an everyday faith. Our student ministry accomplishes this through Connect Groups -- a small biblical community where students can be themselves, share doubts, ask questions, and admit struggles. These small groups are led by caring adults who desire to see each of their students KNOW CHRIST and MAKE HIM KNOWN.
Hope Building | 6-8 pm
ELEVATE is our mid-week worship gathering for students! Pastor Alan Gotthardt leads our Middle School worship gathering and Pastor Tim Johnson leads our High School worship gathering. Their messages are constructed to minister to students and challenge them to impact those around them for Christ. Our worship time is led by our Student Worship Team.
