Teach the Gospel
For us it really is all about Jesus. Our desire is to lift Jesus up so students can see who He is and what He has done. Our teaching aims to be gospel-centered and Jesus-focused. We really believe the Bible is exciting, Jesus is awesome, and His glory is what students desperately need to see.
Our teaching happens on a weekly basis through Sunday School on Sunday mornings and Impact on Wednesday nights. In addition to these, we also teach the gospel through events. Events, retreats, and mission trips happen seasonally and focus on key topics relating to knowing, living, or sharing the gospel. We try to have enough events for students to look forward to, while at the same time not taking over the entire family calendar.
We really do love students and want them to become fully committed followers of Jesus. One of the best ways for students to feel loved is to be surrounded by their peers in a smaller group that is led by dedicated and loving adult leaders. It’s in small groups where they will find care, encouragement, and accountability. Small groups meet together each Wednesday night after worship and preaching, and will even sometimes get together outside of the church building multiple times a semester.
Partner with Parents
Since we believe parents are vitally important, it is our desire to help assist parents in any way we can. With that said, we are intentionally a family-friendly youth ministry.
We always welcome parents to spend time with us, serve as leaders, or volunteer at events. We also seek to equip parents to have spiritual conversations with their students through weekly discussion questions that correspond with our weekly teaching. We also provide various training throughout the year and meet with parents one-on-one for help and encouragement.
