We want to help students discover the beauty of their own stories and connect to the great story that God has been writing through all of history.
Sundays in the Student Center / 6–8 PM
On Sunday evenings, we connect for music, teaching, games, discussions, friendship, and good food in the cafe. It’s a chance to enjoy yourself and go as deep as you want to go in relationship with other people your age.
Journey Groups / Late August–April
Ask honest questions, study Scripture, be invested in by a Christ-following adult, and share life with a small group of peers as you develop deep and lasting friendships. It’s a chance for you to get to know other people and hear their stories. It’s also a chance to hear from leaders and mentors who can help you find the life you were meant to live.
Groups meet during Sunday Nights at the Student Center. To register or get more information, contact Allison at email@example.com.
We want to help you find a lasting faith, so we keep our Sunday mornings open. This gives you a chance to attend a service, volunteer around the church, and spend time with the broader community. As you do this, you will interact with people ahead of you and behind you in faith. It will stretch you, teach you and ultimately it will give you a chance to grow more than you ever realized you could!
